Christians of America, Here Are Four More Reasons Not To Put “In God We Trust” On Our Currency

Atheist attorney Michael Newdow has long attempted to get “In God We Trust” removed from U.S. currency, trying to employ as his tools both the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

But there are other, less legalistic reasons to leave religious verbiage off the nation’s coins and bills, says Redditor ENTeePJ. What’s more, those reasons might even strike Christians as halfway convincing.

Why is putting “God” on the dollar not considered blasphemous? It … has been in every other hooker’s G-string, is used to snort cocaine and bribe politicians, and is a universal symbol for the root of all evil. … What gives?

Good question. Point number four is even in the Bible, in 1 Timothy 6:10:

The love of money is the root of all evil.

If, back in the early ’50s, some influential clergy members had started preaching against putting God on dollar bills — an entirely plausible and Biblically supportable position — Congress might not have voted the way it did in 1956. And secularists wouldn’t have to keep pointing out that religious messages on our money are divisive and against the spirit of the Constitution.

Is it too late to whisper these ideas into religious leaders’ ears, and let them do our bidding?
