"So help me God" is technically not required for any oath it's just always been said mainly because Washington said it. At least with the Feds that's the case. I'm not sure of each states situations.

Right.....that's what I'm saying with this stamp. It's not required, and it's not entirely legal for someone to tell you that you have to say it. That constitutes a governmental endorsement of religion.

It just seemed like you were saying that it should be removed all together which I am not in favor nor against. It really is a non-issue as is before the law (optional).

Oh, it should be removed. It's necessary to be said at all. The constitution itself does not need to be re-written however.

OK not to be a prick but that statement you just typed seems a little contradictory; did you mean " It's  not necessary to be said at all"

It's unnecessary, and is illegal to force someone to say it in a court of law or as an oath to enter into a legal office. (President, ect.)

To Force. At least on the Federal level and in my state is optional and not stated in either constitution. As I said in the first one I don't know how it is in other states but for the Feds and I'm sure multiple states it is optional. It would be unnecessary and a waste of time to try to ban an optional phrase that could be added by impulse anyway. Though I will agree with you that in context it does bother me that such a saying is uttered before entering public office but hey secularism and freedom of speech.

It should not, but apparently in one state all public figures cannot admit to disbelieving in God.

At least one. In TN and NC you cannot be an open atheist and hold a public office. It's an unconstitutional law on the books. And we can't oppose it save for every 7 or 8 years (or something like that. don't take me for a know it all, im not)
