A French national and green card holder who lives in Massachusetts has filed a federal lawsuit against the U.S. government over its citizenship oath, which ends with “so help me God.” In her lawsuit, Olga Paule Perrier-Bilbo, an atheist and a resident of Scituate, claims she wants to become an American citizen but she can’t do so because the oath requires her to say those four words, according

to MassLive.com.  “By its very nature, an oath that concludes ‘so help me God’ is asserting that God exists,” says the lawsuit. “Accordingly, the current oath violates the first 10 words of the Bill of Rights, and to participate in a ceremony which violates that key portion of the United States Constitution is not supporting or defending the Constitution as the oath demands.” CONTINUE
