First U.S. money never used the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST"

The original coinage minted by the United States never carried a religious motto. Interestingly, "MIND YOUR BUSINESS" (from Benjamin Franklin) appeared as the first motto (see below). The first American coinage appeared totally secular; as clean from a mention of god as the Constitution.

However, the religious community in America grew. At the time of pre-Civil War days, church membership had risen to 16 percent of the population (1850) and to 23 percent by 1860. From a desire to transform America into a Christian state, several Protestant denominations organized the National Reform Association which aimed to amend the Constitution to "declare the nation's allegiance to Jesus Christ." and to put a "legal basis" of the land on "Christian laws."

Although the National Reform Association failed in its attempt to amend the Constitution, it continued its efforts into the twentieth century. The National Reform Association attracted many powerful men in its ranks, including governors, Supreme Court Justices, and James Pollock who became the Director of the U.S. Mint.

Not until 1865 did the the religious motto appear on the first public issue coin (a bronze two-cent piece). Later in 1865, an Act to authorize the Coinage of Three-cent pieces, containing the motto, got passed. The Act of 1865 gave the authority to place "IN GOD WE TRUST" on coins.

In 1866 politicians put the motto on $5,$10, and $20 gold pieces, silver quarters, halves, dollars, and on the shield nickel, new in that year. They dropped it from the nickels, from the 1883 Liberty Head, until sculptor Felix Schlag placed it on the Jefferson nickel of 1938.

In 1908 Congress ignored the concept of state/church separation and considered a bill to make the use of the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST" a requirement of law.

The consideration served, of course, as more of a political polemic than a statement of fact. Congress had not specifically approved the motto until after the Civil war and only some coins had the motto imprinted on them. But on March 8, 1908, they passed the bill and made it a law.

On March 22, 1956, during the Christian anti-communist fever of McCarthyism, Congress passed a bill establishing "IN GOD WE TRUST" as a national motto.

Today, the religious motto defaces all of our paper and coinage, none of which appeared on our Founding Father's currency.
Considering that Christians supposedly avoid the love of money, the "root of all evil" (1 Tim. 6:10 ), here we have a perfect example for justifying not only love for money but to place trust in a superstitious entity, the root of maleficence, if ever there existed one.

if God created the world, and the humans, it doesn't matter if you trust him/it or not.

why should God care if a tiny piece of a human which it created, trust it or not?

you are the creation of God, even your enemy is the creation of God.

if God created all, it created the Muslims or Communists too.

why are you any different? just because you said 'In God We Trust'?

God doesn't need your trust.

if saying 'in god we trust' makes you any special than those who don't say it, that means you are trying to bribe God to get benefits for yourself. that is greed.

'In God We Trust' on American money is indeed insult to Christians. that God means nothing but Money itself.

When the federal government needs more money, the Federal Reserve does not merely create and print it as it would do were it a government agency. No, the Federal Reserve creates it as a loan and charges the government interest on it.'

A New Monetary System
by Nikki Alexander

Our government was designed with the constitutional authority to create money and issue credit without ever charging interest or creating debt. It can directly spend interest-free money into circulation and extinguish excess currency to prevent inflation.

THESE buildings symbolized what the wealthiest Americans cared about more than God:
And that's why they were destroyed: To make men REALIZE that they had placed MONEY far above their thoughts of God.

America loves MONEY far more than God. That's one of the reasons millions of people WASTE money on lottery jackpots they'll never win.

That's a sweeping generalization. Lots of people play it to have fun gambling. Others are in need of money and hope they'll win. Some people dont like working for a living and want to retire. etc.

The only people getting rich off of lotteries are the people RUNNING lotteries. So what if one person, or a small group of people, strike it rich?! They're STILL a very very very small minority of the millions and millions of people who CONSTANTLY LOSE.

the reason why you don't play the lottery is because you are scared to death of being robbed if you win. the reason why you are scared to die is because you know very well you will go straight to hell. you are hell bound you gay hater !!!

I don't condone violence against homos, but I don't like homosexuality. For REAL. It's moral rebellion against the 'natural things' God created to be between a husband and wife. And it's FILTY!! Gays are some really stupid people, as far as I'm concerned.
