In God We Trust?

I READ WITH interest the article on the people who were arrested for praying in the Capitol Rotunda. I am a Canadian, and we need the same effort in our provincial and federal capitals. Our respective governments are promoting policies that take money from social programs and people who need it the most and give tax breaks to the wealthiest. All of this in the name of deficit management.

Odd, isn’t it, how the cuts are seldom at the top. Odd also that a country whose currency reads “In God We Trust” arrests those who pray to God in the nation’s capital.
