God Off Money

http://www.godoffmoney.com/

Quote:
The purpose of Godoffmoney.com is to remove the phrase "In God we trust" from our currency. We believe that the phrase violates the cherished American principle of church and state separation and needlessly endangers religious freedom. We believe that it is due time to correct this affront to our religious liberty.

Godoffmoney.com encourages people to place the phrase "Keep Church and State Separate" on their bills. Patriotic individuals all across the country are stamping their bills with this message. It is our hope that because of these efforts, the topic of church/state relations will be placed in the forefront of public discourse.

Our overall goal is far more grand than simply modifying our currency. We want to spread the message that although we live in a predominately religious country, the only way to insure our religious liberty is to maintain the secular identity of our government.
Do you agree?
Why or why not?

A culture that removes everything that is potentially offensive to a member of the culture is..........

I think these people are wasting their time. I don't give a st what's on money, just so I can spend it.

Save us all from the horrors of the phrase "In God We Trust."

I think it's dumb. It's part of our heritage. Give me a break. It'll never happen anyway. Look how much success that Newdow guy had with the pledge.

I want them to add "...all others pay cash" to it.

Exactly. Maybe I should campaign to have certain people's faces removed b/c of incidents in their presidencies that I find offensive and threatening to my freedoms.

And what Irvine said.

Alright. If our money said:

"In Allah We Trust"

or

"In Buddha We Trust"

Would you all be equally ambivalent? Would you be able to walk away and say "it's irrelevant"?

To note, U.S. 666 was renamed, because it bothered Christians. The trend, it seems, is that if Christians are annoyed, laws are changed. If others are annoyed, they're supposed to "suck it up" and stop being all "PC."

Am I correct?

Yes you are correct. That said, this is not the thing I would waste my time fighting. But the catering to certain Christians and essentially telling all others to fuck off is intensely annoying.

Honestly, I don't give a flying turd either way. I supposed the *fairest* solution would be to have one of each, something for everyone. I don't care if they take off "In God We Trust", I just think there are better things to think about.
