Tssss you understand nothing... :nono: :nono:

Only the intention counts !!!

And by the way, if they had wanted to filter foreign signatures, they would have put the country field mandatory, that would have solved the problem.

aban57,

The trouble is you're dealing with a governmental operation, and an administration that values (somewhat) the views of other nationalities. Even IF they won't count the signatures of aliens they will be forced to at least see the consensus of said aliens. This may have simply been an oversight. I suggest you write the white house and ask. Please report any response either here or in a new thread as I think this is a good topic for further examination. Being such an alien your inquiry might get more attention than what an American might expect. I, for one, would find such a response fascinating.

I just got a long-winded response to another petition I signed: Remove "Under God" and "In God We Trust" from the pledge & the currency. Here's the relevant part:

Joshua DuBois wrote:

President Obama supports the use of the words "under God' in our Pledge of Allegiance and "In God we Trust' on our currency. These phrases represent the important role religion plays in American public life, while we continue to recognize and protect the rights of secular Americans.


The ironic part is that Joshua DuBois is Executive Director of the Office of Faith-Based Partnerships for the White House.

:nono:

Yeah, pretty clear they're selecting the religion promoters to reply to requests to de-emphasize religion.

Guys, you won't believe this...
I got an answer !!
Well not exactly, I got a message, but not at all an answer to my question :lol: :lol:

Religion in the Public Square

By Joshua DuBois, Executive Director of the Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships

Thank you for participating in the We the People platform on WhiteHouse.gov. You recently signed a petition asking the Administration to change the motto of the United States from "In God We Trust" to "E pluribus unum."

As you may know, the national motto of the United States was codified in 1956 through legislation passed by Congress and signed into law by President Eisenhower. As such, any change in the law would require Congressional action.

The separation of church and state outlined in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution is an important founding principle of our Nation. Our Nation's Bill of Rights guarantees not only that the government cannot establish an official religion, but also guarantees citizens' rights to practice the religion of their choosing or no religion at all.

Throughout our history, people of all faiths – as well as secular Americans – have played an important role in public life. And a robust dialogue about the role of religion in public life is an important part of our public discourse.

While the President strongly supports every American’s right to religious freedom and the separation of church and state, that does not mean there’s no role for religion in the public square.

When he was a Senator from Illinois, President Obama gave a keynote address at the Call to Renewal conference where he spoke about the important role religion plays in politics and in public life.

A sense of proportion should also guide those who police the boundaries between church and state. Not every mention of God in public is a breach to the wall of separation - context matters.

That’s why President Obama supports the use of the words “under God” in our Pledge of Allegiance and “In God we Trust” on our currency and our motto. These phrases represent the important role religion plays in American public life, while we continue to recognize and protect the rights of secular Americans. As the President said in his inaugural address, “We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus, and non-believers.” We’re proud of that heritage, and the strength it brings to our great country.

I just got the same thing.

So, like all the other petitions, the response is "Thanks for your concern, fuck you, we don't care, we're doing what we want."
