Hudsonville, Michigan is the kind of midwestern town where you’d like to raise a family. Good people. Good neighborhoods. For years the city commission has had a mission – to serve God through making stronger families and bettering community life.
It’s a noble mission — unless you are an atheist.
“Probably ‘striving to serve good’ would satisfy many people, but isn’t God good,” city leader John O’Brien told television station WZZM.
The Freedom From Religion Foundation says they received a complaint about Hudsonville’s mission statement.
The Wisconsin-based atheist group says serving God is inappropriate and unconstitutional.
“A city should have no religious beliefs,” Annie Gaylor said. “That neutrality is the only way to ensure religious liberty for all citizens, which by definition includes the freedom to disbelieve and the freedom to dissent.”
They wrote a nasty letter to the town’s mayor demanding that city leaders stop serving the Almighty.
And that’s exactly what they did.
The godless atheists saluted the city’s decision — saying that the government’s purpose cannot be to serve God.
But that was certainly not the intent of our Founding Fathers — President John Adams once wrote that our constitution is wholly inadequate for anyone other than a moral and religious people.
The atheists want one nation under man, not God — and that could explain the chaos in our culture
