Just a short opinion here. Though I am not an atheist, I believe it is contrary to the national interests to spend public money to create a permanent religious monument (read shrine) on a public building, especially in Washington, D.C. I go on record as being in opposition to the engraving and stand in law and support with the atheists. Comments welcome.

Should Religion Be Carved In Stone...Again?
Cheers to the separation of church and state!
I came across a news story on Yahoo! about a state representative wanting to use public monies to carve "In God We Trust" on the Capitol Center in Washington, D.C. A national group of atheists, which says it represents more than 15% of the nation, has filed suit to stop the engraving.
