Sorry your non religion is the minority, but most people believe in some 'god.' First of all, do you realize the government isn't gonna reprint all of our money because it says god on it right? "In God We Trust" isn't saying that they are operating for the greater good of their god, it's just like I said most people believe in some god. It all honestly seems like attention seeking atheists being well, attention seeking atheists need I explain? Shut the **** up, sit the **** back and try not to look so deeply into what's written on the nations monies, unless of course the word god springs out of the dollar bill and begins hitting you repeatedly.

1. Most people believe in some "God". That much is true... but when the USA Government is referring to "God" they are referring to the Christian God and the constitution specifically states the separation of church and state. If they are going to talk about god then it shouldn't just be "In God We Trust" it should be "In God, Allah, Krishna, Thor, Zeus, The Flying Spaghetti Monster, etc. We Trust" so as to be fair to everybody.

2. Of course they aren't going to reprint all of our money... How ignorant are you? They are just going to take away the "In God We Trust" from the New Currency that they are going to print.

3. It's not just to promote anti-religion. It's to get back to how the Government should be, Completely secular and void of religion within the government. (Not within the country... the government) If we can start with something small such as this, this could be a stepping stone to finally obtaining the secular government that we where meant to have.

4. Don't comment if you don't know 2 ****** about what you're talking about.

Actually, the first ammendment gives us the rights to the freedom of Speech, Press, Religion, Assembly, and Petition.
Now, I'm not saying that this makes it right to have "in god we trust" on money. And I'm not saying it's wrong either. I just don't really think that the first ammendment applies here. None of those freedoms are really being infringed here, the fact that the word "god" is on money doesn't mean it's illegal to be atheist.

But if it is removed from all currency, in a few decades, pristine "in god we trust" bills would be pretty collectible, and it would be a good investment, so I wouldn't be complaining.

the separation of church of state was made so that religions ( the church of england) can not be the supreme rulers of countries. that had been happening for a very long time even before the church of england with the catholic church because for a VERY long time the catholic church was in charge of most of the world. i dont care if they have the in God we trust on our currency because it isint really influencing anything and its not a big deal. but considering the country is mostly christian and based on christian ideals (or at least it was when it was being made) i think of it as more of a history reminder than a push for a religion over another.

i feel like you are a bot that just replys and downvotes everything. i clearly stated NOTHING about either movement and how i dont really care if they keep it on there or not but if i had to decided it would be to keep it there because historically its interesting to me. if you would like it to be gone thats good for you and over time im sure you can get anything done you set your mind to. anyway religion only influences US government by giving people moral compasses that they could have obtained by them self by just not being a dick and even then most politicians would throw religion to the curb if it gave them more votes. i never said it was an issue or anything.

"and leads to the exclusion of fellow citizens." I don't know a single atheist that feels excluded by that phrase on our currency. And frankly, if you do feel excluded by that, then I have no respect for you whatsoever because you're a whiny bitch.

"separation of church and state" just means that we don't have an official "national religion" like some countries it also means that our government can't force a religion onto its people like iran and other sandy countries do where if you are caught practicing another religion you are jailed or killed.
User avatar #23 to #21 - thelordofbutthurt (04/08/2013) [-]
But either way... No religion. NONE. should have any influence over the government.

Because of different religions having influence over the government we have the issues such as the bans on Same sex marriage, or allowing genital mutilation to a baby who's not sure if he wants it or not.

The government should remain secular and make ALL of it's decisions based on what is right morally and for the country, not because a certain religion constitutes it as right.

God does not just refer to Christian God.

That's true but the point is for America to remain secular and have it's government have no connection to any religion in any way shape or form.

For a Government that was SPECIFICALLY made to be free from religion and stay secular... it has way too much involvement with religion... namely christianity of course... and even though God doesn't just mean the Christian God... When the USA is using it they are referring to the Christian God.

I think that they need to remove all of the "In God we Trust" from everything that has to do with the government... the Pledge, The plaques on buildings, the currency... everything.

alright, Separation of Church and state is NOWHERE in the ******* constitution, stop pretending like that has some sort of constitutional basis. Have you even read the constitution at all?

What a load of [url deleted] you faggots have so little to do with your lives that you worry yourselves over stupid **** like the writing on money. Honestly, the world is falling to **** , we are really close to war with a nuclear nation, we have a ever increasing debt and you assholes are worrying about the writing on goddamn money. As if it would make some non-existent point, ******** , this is nothing more than a way to get attention and fool yourselves into thinking people give a **** about these stupid ******* "issues". You know what would happen if god was removed from money, not a god damn thing. hell i haven't taken time to read a piece of cash in years. all it would do is give you dumb-asses a reason to gloat and think you have done the world some sort of service by removing words from a ******* piece of paper.

This is a bunch of culture killing ******** . OP, take your dominance issues and blow them out your ass. Do you understand how unresourcesful this is, to reprint our ENTIRE currency? What good does this do? "Our money doesn't say God on it any more, was yet another waste of government resources but at least our money doesn't say God on it." Put your childish rebellion aside and focus on ACTUAL PROGRESS. This country is falling apart and this is your priority?

Fun Fact, "In God We Trust" can be dated back to the 19th century on Coins. In fact, my Great Grandfather was a coin collector and on nearly every coin it has "In God We Trust" on it....It was added to paper money in 1956.

And how is this an issue? Honestly, you aren't making Atheism look any better. Its a ******* piece of paper for Christs Sake, get over it.

I don't think the government was ever supposed to be secular. One of the main reasons this country was created was so that people could practice their beliefs as they please. That doesn't mean religion shouldn't be part of the government. It just means the government shouldn't force religion on the people. If anything, all religions that exist within our society should be considered as a part of our government and our culture. As for gay marriage, the phrase itself just doesn't make sense. Marriage has been commonly seen for centuries as a bond between a man and a woman. Why should we change the meaning of the word to suit the desires of a small portion of the population? gay people getting married makes as much sense as non-Christians celebrating Christmas. The way I see it, marriage shouldn't even have any legal or monetary benefits. It should just be a religious bond. Since that's not going to happen, I'd suggest making up some completely separate legal bond for gay people.

funny how people get butthurt over this...

the pledge & money didn't have that line until the cold war was happening (was a way to find communist spies).

also some people need to check their facts and realise that the entire USA is a christian nation actually conflicts with the very beliefs of your founding fathers (who'm could be considered atheist in their time for how they thought)...

But do not expect change from a nation that doesn't know their own history...
