Susan B. Anthony

Susan B. Anthony was a radical, as was Martin Luther King and other progressive American heroes. One of the many things she was radical about was her faith in that she had none in god. She famously said, “I always distrust people who know so much about what God wants them to do to their fellows.” By the end of her life, she was agnostic.

It is funny that next to her face on the coin that bears her likeness, it states, “in God we Trust.” No, we don’t.
