Berkley, CA––The civil liberties organization American Atheists has sued the U.S. government to remove the letters “G,” “O,” and “D” from the English alphabet, arguing that the letters “often come together in such an order as to promote a belief in God,” its director, Edward Kegin, said Friday. “The letters represent a violation of rights to many atheists around the country, in that the letters are being misused to promote religion.”
Some now believe that the lawsuit may eventually be modified so as to also remove the letters “F,” “A,” “T,” “H,” “E,” and “R.” American Atheists’ President David Silverman said that the letters are an “offense and no less of an attack on the rights of man than was the inquisition.”
In a letter to members of American Atheists Friday, Silverman wrote, W- c-n n- l-n— s–n- by -n- w–c- -s -u- -i—s -n- ——ms — —mpl– -n by –li-i-us z–l–s. N- l-n—…n- m—!
