    Personally, I like the idea. I don't think God should be on the hook for the Fed's abuses.

    I think it was a genuine deal when it was first put on paper, but today, you're right.
    For me, there's just something aggravating about a bunch of people always demanding, always insulted, always disrespected, not cared for enough, not babied enough, always put out about every GD thing that crosses their path in the course of the day. So my knee-jerk reaction is a common piss off to all of them any more.

    I agree totally ... but in this one case, they're right. Those words have no business being there ... or in the pledge either. Mixing church and state gets you Sharia.

    Maybe we can ban the bible from the courtroom while we are at it. Then what would you swear to to tell the truth?

    I know you have had lots of Roman Catholics, Protestants and Jews for donkeys' years and they all use different bibles.

    In England we can swear in court on almost any "Holy Book" or affirm if we are atheists. Don't you have a similar system?

    Theodore Roosevelt Felt it was sacrilegious to put the phrase; "In God We Trust" on our nation's currency.

    I mean, c'mon, God's name on money? You chase the merchants out of the temple and now your putting the temple in the pockets of the merchants.

    Amendment I. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

    How is in god we trust violating the first?

    It doesn't really.

    But Professur's statement is 100% correct. Those words have no business being there.

    Our currency is an aspect of our government. The government has no business promoting worship or 'Trust' in any gods.

    How about if just said "IN GOD SOME OF US TRUST"?

    Then atheists wouldn't get all butt-hurt with the word GOD in their wallet, but whats the pucking foint?

    How about just remove the phrase entirely and be done with it.

    Does that phrase on your currency in any way enhance your ability to purchase goods or services using the notes? Would you suffer any loss(es) if IN GOD WE TRUST were removed from the notes? Would your faith in God be in any way diminished?

    Some serious questions you should ask yourself.

    Funny how it is good enough as-is to be the world's reserve currency and still somebody wants to change it.

    Apples and oranges, Muja. Putting it on the money or not is nothing to do with the First ... it's simply as inappropriate as putting a picture of a naked woman on there. I'm sure we could find a percentage of the American population who'd be more than happy to see it ... but it doesn't belong.

    I'm sure if it was removed there would be enough people writing or stamping it back on that you would handle at least one a day within weeks.

    Just more herp-derp crap to keep the masses riled up about meaningless nonsense. Guess the gay marriage thing and the rebel flag thing have both run their course. Now it's time for a new mainstream distraction.

    Meanwhile US special forces continue to expand operations across the globe...not content to only have operated in 75% of the nations of the world all without a declaration of war from the traitors in Congress of course. Wait, when are we leaving Afghanistan now? The petrodollar is collapsing before our eyes, and these morons are worried about what's printed on the few physical representations of this soon to be third world's national currency.

    That will only hold up till cash is banned. We need significantly negative interest rates to continue to forestall a collapse and that's incompatible with a price of "money" greater than zero.

    "In private bankster credit we trust" has a nice ring to it.

    That was a nice "switcheroo" they pulled. The next step was removing the silver money.

    Seems more economical to just take the Atheists currency away from them. Case closed.

    This is the first thing that came to mind for me too. I bet if 1% of the resources that lobby and sue for all the changes on flags, references to gods, etc., was diverted to what many would consider important, then the world would be a better place. All this time and money spent to satisfy some personal quirk as opposed to actually making an impactful change (for the better).
