I blogged a while back on Senator Jim DeMint, R-SC, who had whined and complained that the new Capitol Visitors’ Center in Washington doesn’t have enough God plastered all over it. It seems the national motto, “In God We Trust,” will finally be put there, as the AP reports (via Google News):

The national motto, “In God We Trust,” will be engraved in the Capitol Visitor Center, responding to critics who said Congress spent $621 million on the new facility without paying due respect to the nation’s religious heritage.

The House voted 410-8 Thursday to direct the Architect of the Capitol to engrave “In God We Trust” and the Pledge of Allegiance in prominent places in the three-story underground center that is the entrance for the thousands of tourists who visit the Capitol every day. The Senate approved an identical resolution as part of a spending bill earlier this week.

Baby Jimmy DeMint’s tantrum worked, after all. He got his wish. Way to go, Democrats in Congress. Just keep caving in to the Religious Right at every turn. Eventually they’ll have the theocracy they’ve wanted for decades now … and you’ll have handed it to them.
