Conundrum

Why is it that those who feel the need to constantly espouse their faith in God don't seem to have sufficient faith in their God's ability to do the judging?

I also find it interesting that in their arguments they always mention the founding of our country and the fact that the Pledge of Allegiance contains the words 'under God' and we put 'In God We Trust' on our money. Yet they fail to mention that those words were added to the pledge nor do they cite this little anecdote regarding the handy little slogan on our money ...

Truth be told, there was a contest in which Tom Jefferson and Ben Franklin were the finalists. Of course we all know that Jefferson's slogan 'In God We Trust' won out but very few realize that Franklin's In Man We Have Little Faith came in a close second. Our forefathers decided that while both these truths were self-evident, the former would be more politically correct ... even then.
