Steve Kreuscher from Zion, IL wants to legally change his name to In God We Trust.
First name: In God.
Last name: We Trust.
Kreuscher, a Christian who gave up on organized religion 20 years ago, said the new name would symbolize the story of his life.
“I’ve had to trust God through incredibly hard times,” he said.
Going through an “extremely painful” divorce, bouts of severe depression, money problems and a life-threatening home invasion, he believes God protected him through it all.
He’s also worried atheists might finally be successful in having the phrase “In God We Trust” removed from U.S. currency.
“Those words are an endangered species,” Kreuscher said. “You might take it off the money, but you can’t take away my name.”
(Because if we took the phrase off the money, it could no longer be said…?)
The name change will happen next month if the judge approves his request.
It’ll cost him up to $400.
That’s chump change, though. He’s charging $78,000 for this piece of art.
Somehow, it seems like we could make 2389241 jokes about this name change.
I can’t think of any right now.
Surely something’s popping into your mind… what you got?
