It is a gross violation against all people who do not believe in or worship the God of Abraham. There are a LOT of these. Hindus, Buddhists, Pagans, Panetheists, Panentheists, Native Americans, etc., not to mention the atheists. <br />
Though distressful to atheists who are being hounded by xtians to worship their god - be it willingly or unwillingly by having such words on the dollar, it is probably less stressful to those than the parents of children who are teaching their children about another less sadistic god.<br />
At the same time, the practice can be used as a tool to teach children just how cruel and sadistic the God of Abraham is, and in this way avoid it.
I have no problem with "In God We Trust" on our money. (They did leave off the second part, "All others pay cash.) It doesn't say which God, and if you don't believe in any God, you are free to use your credit card or some other form of payment. Personally, I'd like to bring gold back.
We have to trust someone, because we can't trust politicians. lawyers, businessmen or doctors. Or ex-wives. And why is it wrong for the government to trust in God? And don't give me that bullshit about separation of church and state.
I believe the statement is linked to the icon of the pyramid with the eye which is a symbol of the Free Masons. It isn't just a conspiracy theory that Benjamin Franklin was a Free Mason and most likely had a hand in it's (the bill's) design.
You are not understanding it properly. The full phrase is "In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash."
I'd say most in the government do. I don't think it's really an issue.
Yeah, no one really cares enough to change it.
Yeah the whole "Congress shall make no law regarding the establishment of religion" thing obviously doesn't apply. Sure you can say that the statement that there is a God technically isn't establishing a religion but we all know that de facto that God is the Christian God.
Be quiet, child.
