We should leave both in place as it is obvious that we, and our government, do believe in God and his name is MAMMON.

Who believed in God? It could say Santa and mean the same thing to people.

What money? There is no money..... Today a quick check shows a 1964 silver dime to be worth $2.07 cents in what you call money..... That is toilet paper not money. Makes a gallon of gas a great deal.

Bottom line is this: freedom of religion includes freedom FROM religion, and explicitly declaring this a nation UNDER god (that is, a nation of god believers, or even worse: a nation grovelling for god) contradicts that right.


Example: "One nation of NFL fans"

Would you just say "hey it isnt outlining any particular team, relax!" or would you have the mental capacity to realize some people jus aren't football fans?
100% correct.
