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.

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.

US didn't have allies in that war. At least that were called the allies. That's a WWII term.

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.

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 ****.

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.

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.

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.

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?

Also, just because ~73% of Americans call themselves Christian does not mean the rest of us should be ignored.

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).

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.

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.

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?
