Some say the obelisk was chosen because America wanted to look like it had been around for awhile, or as other's have suggested, "put down ancient roots" by choosing the ancient Egyptian symbol. I don't know, looks pretty much like a male phallic symbol to me from all the male energy that founded this country. Unfortunately, I have to break the news to ya'll here: it's Pagan! More precisely, Pan, the goat god of sensuality. The word ‘obelisk’ literally means ‘Baal’s shaft’ or Baal’s organ of reproduction.”
In 1908 the U.S. Congress adopted a law making the phrase "In God We Trust" obligatory on certain American coins. It was placed there to replace the socialistic phrase put their by the framers of our constitution: "Out of Many, One" -- E Pluribus Unum.
