    On gold-colored presidential pieces, national motto relegated to thin edge[/b]

    New dollar coins place 'In God We Trust' along thin edge instead of front or back


    WASHINGTON – "In God We Trust," the official national motto since 1956 and a familiar sight on U.S. coins and currency, will be hard to find on the new presidential dollar coins scheduled for release to the public Feb. 15, 2007.

    The new gold-colored dollar pieces, featuring images of U.S. presidents, will move the inscription from the face of the coin to the thin edge, along with the year and the previous national motto, "E Pluribus Unum," Latin for "Out of Many, One."

    The official reason for the design change? To allow space for larger portraits of the presidents on the face and the Statue of Liberty on the reverse, according to the Mint.

    The new coins will be the same size as the 1979 Susan B. Anthony and the 2000-2002 Sacajawea.

    For the first time the coin will also say "$1" instead of "One Dollar."

    Images of George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison are scheduled to appear on the coins in 2007, with a different president appearing every three months.

    The series will honor four different presidents per year, in the order they served in office. Each president will appear on only one coin, except for Grover Cleveland, who will be on two because he was the only president to serve non-consecutive terms. To be depicted on a coin, a president must have been dead for at least two years.

    "In God We Trust" became the national motto by an act of Congress in 1956 and officially superseded "E Pluribus Unum."

    The most common place where the motto is observed in daily life is on U.S. currency and coinage. The first United States coin to bear this national motto was the 1864 two-cent piece. It wasn't until 1957 that the motto was permanently adopted for use on U.S. money.[/quote]

    They should just get rid of that motto as a whole, along with things such as holding your hand over the Bible (unless one [I]chooses to do so[/I]) when being sworn in as well as gay marriage being prevented due to religious disapproval instead of realizing that marriage recognition by the state is non-religious and a legal issue. These are all examples of undermining the first amendment as well as Thomas Jefferson's "separation of church and state" concepts.

    I'm more concerned with the sliding dollar value than what's printed on it.

    This is fitting. Atheists worship personality and intellect (both their own and those of the like-minded). They will love these big fluffy coins.

    Supressing a motto with the word "Gd" in it is an
    expression of free speech just as the 1st Amendment
    describes and was intended to do-who'da thunk it.

    "In God We Trust," the official national motto since 1956

    Since 1956

    1956

    '56

    50 years

    For 180 years it wasn't on our money

    "We the people" should be on it instead, that is our true national motto

    Besides, I wonder how God feels about us putting his name on money?


    Non-issue :zzz:

    So what you are saying is that there is no such thing as "Seperation of Church and State?" Are you saying that it is made up, and is not in our constitution?

    If that's the case... I am confused. Maybe someone like 49ersJetsfan can clear up what Thomas Jefferson's "separation of church and state" concepts are?

    [/QUOTE]

    Obviously it is in the constitution with good reason- but the reasons consistently given by far leftists groups such as the ACLU and other lunatic liberals, who litigate based on the clause, are a major reach from the actual meaning and reason for seperation of church and state....

    It is similar to the person who cries "racism" every single time they don't get what they want.....

    Thomas Jefferson's letter to the Danbury Baptists discussing "separation of church and state":
    [QUOTE]"I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, thus building a wall of separation between Church and State." [/QUOTE]


    [QUOTE]The First Amendment to the United States Constitution is a part of the United States Bill of Rights. Textually, it prohibits the federal legislature from making laws that:

    Establish a state religion or prefer a certain religion (the "Establishment Clause");
    Prohibit free exercise of religion (the "Free Exercise Clause");
    Infringe the freedom of speech;
    Infringe the freedom of the press;
    Limit the right to assemble peaceably;
    Limit the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances. [/QUOTE]


    Now, when the concept of God is [I]forced[/I] or [I]placed[/I] upon [B]public domain by the government[/B], what the government is doing essentially is endorsing God and religion by the state, which is against the first amendment.

    During the mid 1900s, the government started basically getting too Christian right-wing radical and made sweeping changes to money by adding "In God we trust," as well as editing the Pledge of Allegiance by adding the phrase "Under God."

    This has absolutely nothing to do with liberalism and everything to do with what SHOULD NOT be there in the first place.

    God and religion is a free belief of the individual. It is not constitutionally ethical for the government to be placing religiously biased phrases in their own public material. Would you Christians enjoy it if suddenly money said "In [B]Allah[/B] We Trust" or "In [B]Satan[/B] We Trust"??? Hmm? Thought not. Only if it's your religion you're ok with it right?

    Hence why the forefathers of this country worked so damn hard to prevent this prejudicial abhorrence from the very beginning even though they were all Christians.

    Glad I flushed you out but not away then.
    The multiple personality gal/guy gives it away with
    'chickenhawk'
    Whether you are wise, or dumberkhan remains to be read.
    If youre the soldier, I thank you for your service nevertheless.
    But don't tell anyone else you're going to school-you'll get
    the neighbors jealous

    I like plumbers, Gd knows theyve made enough visits to my
    house so they probably like me too

    "removed piece of puzzle from main trap" says it all

    Did I mention, I like plumbers, I just can't standpipes.

    Geddit?

    If not, ask any plumber you happen to see.
    He's smart, but very iconoclastic/sarcastic/cynical.
    Last time I was on the hot line with Jesus I told Him
    his heart was in the right place though.

    Actually, marriage recognition by the state has nothing to due with marriage. Marriage as an institution is grounded in matters of faith. Nice try.

    No, it's not.

    Marriage has been a long-time institution of the government throughout history in many countries, this one included. Religious marriage is an institution grounded in matters of faith. However, when discussing marriage through the state (hence why you may go through a judge to marry as opposed to a religious leader) it has nothing to do with religion.

    Contrary to popular belief, marriage is not an institution created by Judiasm. It was around well before that.
