“In God We Trust” Quietly Removed from U.S. Currency

First, the government removed prayer from schools. Then, the government removed the 10 Commandments from the courthouses. Now, it appears that the emblematic phrase “In God We Trust” may soon be removed from U.S. currency for good.

Possibly millions of the U.S. $1 coins have been circulating since 2006 without the nation’s official motto: “In God We Trust.”

These new coins were supposed to proudly display the “In God We Trust.” But those four words are conspicuously missing from the edges of some coins circulating around the nation. What happened?

The U.S. Mint posted a statement admitting that a portion of the 300 million coins “inadvertently left the United States Mint at Philadelphia without edge-lettering on them. It is unknown how many of these coins without inscriptions on the edge have been placed into circulation.”

According to the Mint, the agency is looking into the matter to determine a possible cause in the manufacturing process.

However, the Mint’s assertion of a mechanical error is questionable. Ron Guth, president of Professional Coin Grading Service, one of the world’s largest coin authentication companies, told MSNBC that the problem had to do with quality control rather than a mechanical error. He based his judgment on the roughly 50 smooth-edge dollars he has authenticated

“These coins are struck like normal coins, and then they go through another machine that adds edge lettering in another process. These apparently skipped that process,” Guth told MSNBC. “We’ve seen a couple of instances where the edge lettering may be weak or indistinct, but we’re not talking about that here.”

How then were these coins missed? Is it possible the government has succumb to the barrage of lawsuits filed against it seeking to remove “In God We Trust”?  Many believe that this could be the product of an agenda to totally extract the word “God” from public view.  Could it be possible that this is true? And, if so, could the pledge of allegiance be next?

    Maybe it should remove it based on the fact that we are not a theocracy? Seperation of church and state? Religious freedom? While I do believe in God, I don’t want our goverment forcing it down out throats, so I think it should be removed.

    The Founding Fathers drew up a godless constitution for a good reason;it’s to protect the what few sane,rational thinking people that remain in America from the mentally deranged tyrants that want to rule this nation.However,there may be light at the end of the tunnel.All of the elderly men that destroyed this naton will be dying off in droves within the next decade of the ’10′s (teens),and perhaps a more younger generation with intellect far superior than that of the current senior population will be in charge of this country.I say good bye,and good riddance to most of the stupid elderly,for you surely will not be missed.Prior to 1864 CE,NO “In God We Trust” motto was on our coinage.Let’s roll back the clock to 1863,and let us restore some degree of sanity back into this country.

    John, there was also slavery prior to 1864 and a bloody civil war to fought to end it. God is referred to in the US constitution and almost all of the state constitutions.Also it was those Christian values that led the opinion against slavery. Perhaps you should “uncle Toms Cabin by Harriet Stowe. It was the second best selling book of the 19th century next to the bible. Furthermore the 1st amendment prohibits the United States Congress from making laws “respecting an establishment of religion” or that prohibit the free exercise of religion, infringe the freedom of speech, infringe the freedom of the press, limit the right to peaceably assemble, or limit the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances. I dont see how we have a theocracy in this country. Lastly those senile old old people made the great country of today. if you are whats to come then we are screwed.

    If you don’t like they way our founding fathers put the constitution together nor the Christian based values then get the hell out of my country.

    It is piss ants like you that are breaking down the moral fabric of the United States of America.

    The 1st Amendment of the Bill of Rights states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of Religion, or prohibiting the free speech thereof…”

    This is NOT the same as being illegal to have “In God We Trust” on our monies. It is mealy there to prevent government of the people by the people from being forced on its people. E.g. you have to be a catholic to be a citizen.

    If you don’t like it go to Saudi Arabia or Iran or Syria or Africa or where ever the hell you want, just go.

    1 more thing, “In god we trust” is not by itself an “establishment of Religion” so quite crying about it kids.

    Some people like to forget that many people who’ve fought and died for the rights that OUR great nation give are are/were NOT Christian and many have/had NO religion. It’s UNAMERICAN to force any religion onto us.

    “The phrase “wall of separation between the church and the state” was originally coined by Thomas Jefferson in a letter to the Danbury Baptists on January 1, 1802. His purpose in this letter was to assuage the fears of the Danbury, Connecticut Baptists, and so he told them that this wall had been erected to protect them. The metaphor was used exclusively to keep the state out of the church’s business, not to keep the church out of the state’s business.”


    I think this country has been blessed and protected because we as a whole have honored God. That seems to be changing though.
