Congresswoman Eshoo,I wish to express my disappointment at your Aye vote for H CON RES 131 "Directing the Architect of the Capitol to engrave the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag and the National Motto of “In God we trust” in the Capitol Visitor Center".
Millions of Americans do not trust in any god. I fail to understand why anyone would trust the god of the bible if there is one. If anything, it should be "In God we are wary" since it seems (if it existed) to be pretty cruel and cold.
As you know, this motto and the "under god" in the pledge was added out of fear of communism in the 1950's. "E Pluribus Unum" ("from many come one"), our original motto from Jefferson, Adams and Franklin is and should be our only motto.
I would be very interested in your support of a bill to rescind CON RES 131, or to at least stop it's funding from my taxes. The religious world is perfectly capable of paying for this themselves. But on the other hand... this whole issue is going to the Supreme Court if not stopped sooner, it will cost a whole lot more to install, if ever, than the $150,000 appropriated.
Thank you for your time.
