That's atheist-OK as in "atheist friendly," sorry if I was unclear.
That might be so!  There's a lot of other godly things going on that are probably less benign.  I'm not actually upset about the motto on money, like it's not a huge issue.

(If you caught this before the edit, I had the changes to the Pledge of Allegiance in mind, whoops.)

They occurred at the same time-ish.  1956.

The original, but unofficial US motto is E Pluribus Unum - From many, one.

I think we printed it on our money before it became the official motto, that is what I meant.

Yes, that's true.  Anywho - mildly interesting trivia break over.

I think the one thing preventing psychiatric counseling from taking the place of the chaplaincy is that - while both offices have an expectation of confidentiality to allow them to function - the stigma associated with visiting a 'mental health professional' as opposed to a 'spiritual advisor' is rather well-ingrained in our society.
