What about those of us who believe in freedom and liberty, but not in god?

Oh, well. We will find a home somewhere.

scientist,

OK, give me all your coin and currency if the phrase is so offensive to you.

Re: The Scientist Provo, UT

lost in DC hit the nail squarely on the head. Each and every US coin and all denominations of US paper money bear the inscription "In God We Trust".

Most people who claim they don't believe in God resort to asking for His help when their life is on the line.

Yes, and those are inappropriate. Remove them all.

"Yes, and those are inappropriate. Remove them all."

The moral majority just wouldn't tolerate it, and politicians who want to keep their jobs fear the people. "In God We Trust" is something atheists are just going to have to learn to live with.

The article isn't clear-- does it merely take 500 orders to get a plate design made, or does the plate design have to be legislatively authorized first and then 500 pre-orders are required to start production?

Who is up for a Flying Spaghetti Monster plate? Count me in.

@rifleman
so the politicians live in fear of the "moral majority" (very loaded title) and somehow you think this is moral?

@rifleman
Did you really just say "moral majority?" I almost fail of my chair laughing, there is nothing moral about the behaviors of those that claim this title.

"Did you really just say "moral majority?""

Yes, a majority of today's Americans would not tolerate the deletion of "In God We Trust" from our currency. And no, politicians won't commit suicide by opposing them on this issue.

The fact cannot be denied that "In God We Trust" is on all our coinage and all our paper money and it is going to stay there for the foreseeable future.
