Remember the founding fathers

Re: “In God We Trust sign doesn’t belong,” (Reader Input, March 28).
For the moment, let’s forget the Constitution and what the founding fathers wrote regarding religion and government. Because as the author of the letter stated that 20 percent do not believe (which may or not be correct depending if you listen to National Public Radio or Rush) in religion, so “In God We Trust” should not be displayed.
If we are using the argument that the minority should always decide over the majority — wait, that’s what happens when government doesn’t follow the Constitution.
That’s not to say that the majority opinion should always be adopted or that the minority opinion is invalid. We should look at both sides of each argument then look to the Constitution and the writings of the founding fathers before we make judgments and declare what is the right thing to do for all.
