GODLESS WEDNESDAY: Mississippi Adds "In God We Trust" To State Seal

The Mississippi state legislature passed a measure late Tuesday that proponents refer to as a "religious freedom restoration act" but that among other things, would add the words "In God We Trust" to the State Seal and clarify that "sincerely held religious belief " can trump non-discrimination laws, the same kind of law that Governor Jan Brewer vetoed earlier this year.

The ACLU still opposes the legislation:
“Even though the Mississippi legislature removed some of the egregious language from Arizona’s infamous SB 1062, we are disappointed that it passed this unnecessary law and ignored the national, public outcry against laws of this nature,” said Eunice Rho, advocacy and policy counsel with the ACLU.
Why is it that people who are religious believe they need to have "special rights" that people who do not believe in God do not have?
