E pluribus unum – There are two sides to everything. In this case: Annuit cœptis & Novus ordo seclorum. But wait! There's more...

"So help me God" in Yank oaths of office dates back to the Second Continental Congress (1776.) Local atheists, agnostics or whatever make “affirmations.” Each their own.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Framers:
Episcopalian/Anglican (57.1%)
Congregationalist (23.2%)
Presbyterian (21.4%)
Quaker (3.6%)
Unitarian or Universalist (3.6%)
Catholic (1.8%)

Godless is, as Godless does.
