You want to know why it's on there? Because during the Cold War, the US wanted to appear more "morally good" than the USSR, so, they put religious things on everything. Money, pledge of allegiance, etc. To make the "good, wholesome, God loving US" appear to look better than those "Godless Reds". Simple propaganda. Now, why is it still on there? Because old habits die hard, simple as that.

Plus, we'd have to get rid of every dollar bill that has that and have to manufacture new dollar bills without it. We just figure it's too much work cuz we're lazy as **** .
#75 to #46 - meowthenin (02/22/2013) [-]
Not really. They'd cycle it like the new versions of bills. You can still find 90's $10 bills, but when they get to certain banks they are sent to facilities that will give the bank the same exact amount in fresh new bills and they destroy the old ones.

ah. thank you for educating me.

That moment when something on the internet is valid. Thumbs for you sir.

Blame the USSR for it. Our government put "In God we trust" on our money so we would be better then the godless commies. That's also why "Under God" is in the pledge of allegiance.
User avatar #113 to #6 - xldarkking (02/22/2013) [-]
Wasn't it the Knights of Columbus though?
User avatar #7 to #6 - jovisman (02/21/2013) [-]
so blame the USSR for something our the U.S govt did
#8 to #7 - sorakirin (02/21/2013) [-]
yes because our government wanted to look better in a 46 year pissing contest with Russia. Please note I didn't say it was ok that our government did it. I'm just saying why they did it. Even if the reason was stupid.
User avatar #9 to #8 - jovisman (02/21/2013) [-]
understood
#10 to #9 - sorakirin (02/21/2013) [-]
I still find it funny that even people who were around when it happened still say it's always been this way
User avatar #11 to #10 - jovisman (02/21/2013) [-]
Yeah my grand parents and parents think that it was always like that.well atleast until I showed them
#18 to #6 - cheifadvisoryuri (02/21/2013) [-]
Allied dog, trying to blame us.
#19 to #18 - sorakirin (02/21/2013) [-]
Russia was on the allied side durring WWII
#20 to #19 - cheifadvisoryuri (02/21/2013) [-]
Not during WWIII

Then what time were you talking about?
#22 to #21 - cheifadvisoryuri (02/21/2013) [-]
1972 of coarse.
#23 to #22 - sorakirin (02/21/2013) [-]
US didn't have allies in that war. At least that were called the allies. That's a WWII term.
#26 to #23 - cheifadvisoryuri (02/22/2013) [-]
The United States was part of the Allied forces. The Allies were targeted by the Soviet Union as an enemy of power. The Allied dogs was teamed with Great Britain, France, Germany and Korea. The World Socialist Alliance was Comprised of the USSR, Libya, Cuba, and Iraq.

This thread has gotten really weird really fast.
User avatar #60 - ohthreeeleven (02/22/2013) [-]
unrelated to the post: If you're an atheist and want me to respect your opinion, shouldn't you respect mine as a catholic?

im expecting more hate but how can you preach tolerance if you're going to punish me for my beliefs? Again, unrelated to the post.
#74 to #60 - meowthenin (02/22/2013) [-]
What about the respect for other religions? This is America, where we are free to believe whatever we wish to believe. Why do we have to have "God" on our money? And isn't your God anti-greed? It doesn't really bother me that it's there or that we say "under God" in the pledge but I do understand why it does upset people. It's not disrespect to you. It's about them being respected on the same level as you. People call America a Christian nation still, and that's not right. It should be a nation for everyone.
User avatar #78 to #74 - theonlytinman (02/22/2013) [-]
Keep in mind that I agree with a lot of your points. That being said, America according to a 2012 survey, 78.4 Americans consider themselves a Christian. Thats over 3/4. Like it or not, we will be known as a Christan nation by other countries and our own because those are numbers that don't lie.

And for arguments sake, about the anti-greed note you made, do you think its possible that it is there for the purpose of reminding people that the money is not ultimately important?
#84 to #78 - meowthenin (02/22/2013) [-]
Also, just because ~73% of Americans call themselves Christian does not mean the rest of us should be ignored.
User avatar #126 to #84 - theonlytinman (02/22/2013) [-]
You're not being ignored. How are you being ignored?
#83 to #78 - meowthenin (02/22/2013) [-]
No, it is not possible for that to be the reason. Both "In God We Trust" and "under God" were added to our money/pledge as part of a series of changes during the cold war to make us seem better than Russia. Did you know you used to be able to get degrees in High School? You'd skip most other classes and take, for example, math classes out the ass and you'd have a ton of credits and could possibly have an associate's out of high school. But during the Cold War laws happened to give a more well-rounded education to the citizens (probably for the better).
User avatar #145 - sabdoor ONLINE (02/22/2013) [-]
The Phrase was added to the declaration of Independence in 1957 as a way of assuring citizens that America, during the First half of the cold war, had divine providence and that all commie bastards were some sort of heathen.
User avatar #246 to #145 - tkfourtwoone ONLINE (02/22/2013) [-]
Well that's rather arrogant-megalomaniac thing to do, isn't it?
User avatar #156 to #145 - SenorButtPlug (02/22/2013) [-]
I think you mean the pledge of allegiance. Although the thought of Dwight Eisenhower scribbling "In God We Trust" at the bottom of the Declaration of Independence with a ballpoint pen is pretty hilarious.
User avatar #210 to #156 - sao (02/22/2013) [-]
Make the ballpoint pen a quill and you have the exact image that flashed through my hear when I read sab's comment.
User avatar #181 to #156 - sabdoor ONLINE (02/22/2013) [-]
Sorry. I did mean that. Thanks for the correction
#349 - anon (02/22/2013) [-]
Am I the only atheist who does not give two ***** about this? I mean, it's just text on a colored piece of money; it has no significance. As for the pledge, just don't say under god and we are all ok.
#350 to #349 - anon (02/22/2013) [-]
Colored piece of paper....my bad lol
User avatar #354 to #349 - biker (02/22/2013) [-]
They put "in god we trust" because they wanted to reinforce the importance of God to the american people because part of being a communist was to be without religion.
Before that time many people were appalled by the idea of putting God on money.
User avatar #355 to #354 - scorcho ONLINE (02/22/2013) [-]
so it's just a anti communism propaganda thing?
User avatar #364 to #355 - neoexdeath ONLINE (02/22/2013) [-]
It was the fifties, everything was anti-communist. There was even a patriotic way to take a **** . (It involves doing the pledge of allegiance once your colon starts contracting)
User avatar #73 - imcoolashell (02/22/2013) [-]
god, atheists piss me off. Does it really bother you people that much that the back of the dollar bill says "in god we trust"
******* Christ, get over yourself
ps im an atheist, but i don't give two *****
User avatar #77 to #73 - unknownmercury (02/22/2013) [-]
Hehehe. Sorry, just... The irony of you invoking both the name of god and his son.
#106 to #77 - zenethe ONLINE (02/22/2013) [-]
it's just something people grow up with, it loses it's literal power and becomes more of a figure of speech, I say that's gay or gay as **** or you're a faggot/fag all the time, but am I really hating on homosexuals? and if one 13 year old who just learned the technical definition of gay/fag and suggests that I mean happy or a bundle of sticks I'll be somewhat irritated and not in the least amused

Not trying to start anything or anything, just letting you know =D

Quick question. Who gives a **** ?
#359 to #151 - hairibar (02/22/2013) [-]
I do. I find it interesting and curious
#152 to #151 - mrmamric (02/22/2013) [-]
Peopel who want to complain about what makes other people happy.

yeah, this just wrangles my jeremies. i hate when i pull out my money and am constantly reminded that people believe in god. Why does the government feel the need to force me to believe in god to spend my money. what a bunch of fags shoving their religion down my throat whenever i actually want to read my money, as a matter a fact we should ban the word god from all books. i want to be able to read the bible without being offended by things.

do we really have to start these posts again?

'money is evil'
'lets put gods name on it'
#341 to #320 - fuckyosixtyminutes (02/22/2013) [-]
As if anyone in the federal government thinks money is evil...
#154 - tastycupcakes (02/22/2013) [-]
ok, so?
User avatar #161 to #154 - syis (02/22/2013) [-]
So this calls for a new crusade!

I believe it was changed because of the second Red Scare and the Cold War...   
   
Which explains why "Under God" was added to the Pledge of Allegiance around the same time; to boost morale and make our views "backed by God."   
   
Our country WAS founded on religion. I see no problem with keeping these mottos or lyrics active, but if somebody wishes not to acknowledge them, then it should definitely be within their right.   
   
However, I don't believe we should remove them just to "appease" to that group.

This country was not founded on religion. It was founded on the basis of equality and fair treatment no matter what religion. Saying that one religion has priority over others is incredibly Un-American.
User avatar #379 to #202 - lisreal (02/25/2013) [-]
Puritans

Enough said.

Also, I never said that it did have priority. Religion did influence many of the decisions that shaped our nation though.
