In God We Trust, it is on the cash and coin.  Does it burn when you handle it?

It was a part of Victorian American piety and patriotism.  We inherited it.

Some object to the Pledge for the same reason.  Stalinists object too.

Atheists are the best source of ignorance, and confusion.
Evolution, the religion whereby one believes your children more human, and your parents more ape, than you!

The Human Mind, if it has nothing to do with Evolution...What an incredible entity...
If it does, what a waste!

Atheism, what a wonderful religion, where one believe to believe is erroneous.

It wasn't until 1954 that President Eisenhower added "under God" to the Pledge of Allegiance. The same President, two years later, also mandated that all American currency have the words "in God we trust" on it. America was founded as a secular government, with protections to prevent any one religion from using the government to force its will on others, but from the very beginning, Christians have been doing everything they can to undermine that.
"Oh, wearisome condition of humanity,
Born under one law, to another bound;
Vainly begot, and yet forbidden vanity,
Created sick, commanded to be sound."

Soon their agenda will be fulfilled, when America will become a Christian theocracy.

Last good President we had ;-(

Lincoln refounded the US, in the image of the damn Yankees.

Soon the national motto will be "In GOP We Trust."
