Given the last two decisions from the Supreme Court regarding the place of money in elections, I would think, in the minds of the uber-wealthy who are trying to buy the government lately, the god some trust is the almighty dollar. Thoughts?

Exactly right. Which proves that religionists do not want "freedom", they want Dominion!

What does the Constitution really say about religion and government? The first clause of the 1st Amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;"

Did Congress force any establishment of religion to change its doctrine?

Those who failed English may have a hard time understanding that "an establishment" is not "the establishment". Contrary to what some people believe, the Founding Fathers understood English and properly the English language. It's unfortunate that some people twist the English language to try to tell us that it means the opposite of what was written.

No establishment of religion has been offended by "In God We Trust". Congress did not dictate to any establishment of religion that they must write those words over the doors of their places of worship. Congress did not dictate that any establishment of religion must recite those words in their religious services.

The first clause of the 1st Amendment was not violated.

I like the phrase on the money. Period. I hope all Americans can trust in God!
