The complete idiot’s guide to the protection of American atheists

A group of atheists have filed a lawsuit to prevent the inclusion of the historic Ground Zero Cross at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum.

We have learned from their lawsuit that they, “have suffered, are suffering, and will continue to suffer damages, both physical and emotional, from the existence of the challenged cross.” Atheists have reportedly endured cross-induced, “dyspepsia [upset stomach], symptoms of depression, headaches, anxiety, and mental pain and anguish.”

In order to ensure that atheists in America never again experience any of the aforementioned ailments, I’ve identified things that must be removed or altered immediately to rectify the government’s continued disregard for the hurt feelings of godless Americans.

-The National Motto: “In God We Trust”
-“Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance
-Original copies of the Declaration of Independence in the National Archives, which reference “our Creator” and “Nature’s God”
-“Christmas” and “Thanksgiving” are official federal government holidays
-The U.S. Constitution itself references “Year of our Lord”
-The National Day of Prayer
-The new Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial includes much of “Dr. King’s Spiritual Presence” by permanently inscribing portions of his sermons on the memorial inscription wall
-All “Religious” Artwork in the National Gallery of Art
-The Latin phrase “Laus Deo [Praise be to God]” on the cap of the Washington Monument
-On the Lincoln Memorial are etched the word of the Gettysburg Address (“this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom”) and his Second Inaugural Address (“with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right,”) which are replete with references to God
-The Jefferson Memorial’s dome includes this inscription about God, “I have sworn upon the altar of god eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.” There are other references to God in the memorial
-On the Tomb of the Unknown at Arlington National Cemetery is inscribed, “Here rests in honored glory an American soldier known but to God”
-The federal courthouse which includes a cross and the Ten Commandments …
