The questions seemed to get harder and harder. Much of the first batch of questions are common knowledge to freethinkers, but many questions deeper into the quiz were completely new to me.Chris

Yeah. Some of 'em are still fresh in my memory. I think most of the latter questions surprised me first time around.

Excellent post! I missed the HITLER one, after second guessing myself! I missed the TRICK question about the Pilgrims separation...and I could swear that "In God We Trust" was put on money during Lincoln's time...hmmm.Thank you for taking the test, and for your interest in state/church separation.See below to get a free copy of Freethought Today.Congratulations!

Quote:and I could swear that "In God We Trust" was put on money during Lincoln's time...hmmm.I think the key part of that question is when it was an "act of Congress." And that's when it became manditory for it to be on ALL money. Up until then, some money had it, some didn't.

We celebrated Constitution Day in school today. I was surprised that we actually had to turn lesson plans for Constitution Day in to our Assistant Principal. This year, teachers received a document explaining that this day is to be observed in schools. I really had to keep myself in check while discussing the topic down here in the bible belt!

Quote:and I could swear that "In God We Trust" was put on money during Lincoln's time...From time to time, but not all coins/bills, not all the time. Roosevelt took the phrase off of the $20 gold coin one year, because he felt that God's name shouldn't be involved in gambling, or transactions such as the purchase of alchohol, tobacco and prostitutes.Congress went apeshit the next year and put it back on.It was legislated for all monies about the same time that 'under god' was attached to the pledge.
