I don't see anything wrong with putting "In God We Trust" Anywhere, as Long as they add "In Man We Do Not Trust"!

It is a 1st amendment violation. It's bascially a showing of the government favoring religion. All someone needs to do is sue, and the courts will make them take it down.

It is not a 1st amendment violation. Separation of church and state has been pushed by those that would love to destroy religion in this country. The constitution says the state or government will not create a state religion or church. I don't see how putting those words on a building is in anyway creating a church or religion. Christian, Jews, Muslims even Hindus believe in a God so I don't see how it is wrong. How does it show favoring a religion? Which one? Can you tell which one by the words? It doesn't say Jehovah or Allah or whatever Hindu's believe it just says God. I guess if worship the devil it might offend ya. If you don't believe period then shouldn't mean anything to you.

That's where the problem is: Putting everyone in the building in the same bucket even if they don't believe in religion. Freedom FROM religion is once again royally trampled.

Wrong.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

What law did they make? None.

Where does this address anything about "freedom from religion?

Answer: It doesn't.
