Nonbelievers seek to take God off currency


quote:

The Freedom From Religion Foundation, along with 19 other plaintiffs, is suing the U.S. Treasury for stamping “In God We Trust” on currency. Honorary FFRF board member Mike Newdow is acting as legal counsel in the suit, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on Feb. 1.

Meh it was added in the 1950s to distinguish ourselves from the Godless commies. It's not exactly some sacred American historical phrase.

I'm all for taking it off. The Dollar will be worthless soon.

Who has the time to pursue such things? and why is such a big deal to anybody?

Why would you want to defile God's name by putting it on something as dirty as money?

Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's.

I think there are way more important things to worry about. A nonbeliever does not believe so it should not bother them. But to each his own, waste time in court. I am offended by a lot of things I wont waste time tying up courts about it.
And before someone asks, how do I know they are offended? They obviously would not be suing if they werent.

This is what I have always thought about his group in particular. I don't have time in my life to be this outraged about so many things. They sound like a bunch of teenage girls.

No. Do you know when and why it was added to paper currency?

This is a short little Youtube video that I think demonstrates why.

If it's such a non-issue, then it ought to be easy for believers to quietly allow it to be taken off. The only way it'll tie up things in court is if there is some strong opposition to this move...

This is the irony. They will claim it is a non-issue and then fight it tooth and nail.

I'm actually surprised it took this long for it to become an issue. Along with the pledge of allegiance.

It's sad, but that's what this country is turing into. It's inevitable at this point.

So is it a big issue to you? Do you feel "excluded"? How many times have you looked at a bill and started to feel lonely because the words on it "excluded" you?

Facing the serious issues that threaten the country. . .

I just laugh when I hear these guys getting their vaginas sandy.

Hopefully the US Government tells them the same thing UTk told them.

FFRF does not want to sue, they hope the threat of a lawsuit changes policy.

Would you have made the same argument to the people who pushed for getting it on the currency in the first place?

Not a big issue, but an issue.

In theory, yeah. I don't trust in any gods, and it sucks that the money I use suggest we ALL do. In practice, I only give it any thought during discussions like this.

Zero...but then I never carry cash.

Our currency should look like Canadian currency. They're doing it right.
