Contenu: Why secularism? The basic logical and philosophical argument --
Atheists are not un-American : atheists are, despite congressman Rabaut, American through and through --
Religion and politics now : the political state of the arguments over secularism in the context of a presidential election --
Why Newt Gingrich's abuse of language matters to the defense of secularism --

Tolerance, toleration, and liberty : the historical context --
Secular schooling : public-school policies and curriculum questions affecting religious liberty --
Holy days and holidays in a secular society : who could be against a day off, anyway? --
He who is not with me is against me : contrary to the reported words of Jesus, secularism is not anti-Christian --
The naked public square? Clearing up confusion, even among secularists, about the difference between "public" and "civic" --
The big lie : morality and conscience in a secular society --
God's law : Sharia and the Ten Commandments versus the Constitution --
Blasphemy and heresy : where free speech and freedom of religion must meet --
What in the name of God? Why "god" doesn't belong in America's motto or in any official pledges of allegiance --
Questions : frequent questions or claims by Christian-nation proponents with specific answers to the claims --
Conclusion : the United States is and should remain a free country and not a Christian nation.
Responsabilité: by Edward M. Buckner and Michael E. Buckner.

Résumé:

Opponents attack the president of the United States for not being a real Christian. Bitter arguments erupt over whether the United States is or should be a Christian nation. Sound familiar? These contentious issues are not just recent developments but were also the topics of fierce debate in the late eighteenth century. In Freedom We Trust covers these and other related issues from the two-centuries-long debate over religion and secularism in America. Taking an unabashedly atheistic point of view, authors Edward M. and Michael E. Buckner argue that everyone?from evangelical Christian to ardent atheist?needs a secular America and separation of church and state. They examine the decidedly unchristian roots of the Fourth of July, the important difference between "tolerance" and "toleration," the misleading confusions related to the difference between "public" and "governmental," the value of secular schooling, the erroneous contention that atheism is equivalent to immorality and therefore dangerous, and a host of other contemporary and historical topics.
