Are you OK with being told you can’t talk about God? There’s no need to be quiet any longer. “In God We Trust” is more than just our national motto – it’s our country’s foundation and part of our identity as Americans. The U.S. Congress passed Resolution 13* with an overwhelming 396/9 vote in November, 2011, reaffirming our national motto and encouraging its public display. You can help display “In God We Trust” in government buildings, Courtrooms, schools and businesses
A local atheist group attempted to hijack National Religious Freedom Day at the site Thomas Jefferson wrote the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom. Religious Freedom Coalition chairman William J. Murray was the keynote speaker and atheists demanded a “rebuttal” at an event that was 90% parade and celebratory. The atheists were informed that this was a celebration not a debate.

Mike Huckabee, former presidential candidate and Arkansas governor turned radio talk show host, on Friday will talk to William Murray about his new book, “My Life Without God.”
Murray, the son of the woman once known as America’s most famous atheist, Madalyn Murray O’Hair, recounts his journey from despair to everlasting love through the grace of God in his new book.
It was in 1963 when O’Hair won a landmark lawsuit filed on behalf of her son that effectively banned prayer in public schools.
This may seem an odd place to find a post from American Atheists, although it does prove the point that atheists in the United States should thank God the nation has a Judea-Christian culture. An atheist in Pennsylvania was attacked by a Muslim for mocking Mohammed and had the misfortune to find his case against the Muslim in front of a Muslim judge. This should be a wake-up call to those such as Governor Chris Christie who appoint Muslim judges on a regular basis to make points with the Grover Norquist crowd.
William J Murray reports on President Obama, Congress and terrorism. This issue includes Obama’s drive to make us more dependent on energy from despotic nations and his release of oil from the Strategic Reserve.

Also covered is the continued push for sharia law in Egypt by elements of the Muslim Brotherhood.

This statement was written by William Murray in May of 1999. The dismembered bodies of Madalyn Murray O’Hair, Jon Murray and Robin Murray were found in January of 2000 in Camp Wood, Texas. One of the killers, David Waters, led the authorities to the site in return for a guarantee he would serve his time in a Federal rather than in a Texas state prison. He died of prison of liver decease in 2003. A second killer was sentenced to live in prison.
