In 1956, Congress passed a resolution declaring “IN GOD WE TRUST” as the national motto of the United States. President Eisenhower signed the law and the motto was added to paper money beginning in 1957. Opponents argue that the motto violates the U.S. Constitution since it is a clear violation of the separation of church and state. Proponents argue that it does not prefer one religious denomination over another. See recent first amendment news

Religious freedom is a must in this country. Although many common religions even non Christian based, praise a for of God, it is never in the same light as the Christian version the US projects. This practice only alienates those who do not believe in the... 5 years ago from a Democrat in Altamonte Springs, FL
No, because taxpayers money going toward the removal of "references" is frivolous. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Everett, WA
No! We should uphold and strengthen the Judeo Christian values. It has been the very foundation that has made this country great and held us together as the wealthiest and most giving country in the world. 5 years ago from a Republican in East Olympia, WA
Yes, separation of state and church. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Seaside, CA
Money should done away with and all trade replaced with gifting. 5 years ago from a Socialist in Portland, OR
Yes, separation of church and state. 5 years ago from a Green in Watkins, MN
Yes, along with ending all of these things. 5 years ago from a Libertarian in Vista, CA
No, the separation of church and state was meant to keep the government out of the church, not the other way around. 5 years ago from a Libertarian in Duluth, MN
Our country founded on separation of church and state. Let the government not interfere in any way with religious beliefs, including mention on currency, etc. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Kenosha, WI
Yes, it was added during the Red Scare to appease the ignorant and is not apart of American foundation. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Greenwood, IN
Yes, but only to the changes made that included references to God in the 1950's and earlier. Original/historical references should be left alone. 5 years ago from a Democrat in La Mesa, CA
Not from monuments, that would be revising history. But going forward, from anything else. 5 years ago from a Green in Queensbury, NY
How much money would it cost to make these changes? Historically, most citizens have been deists, As currency wears out, buildings get transferred to other uses, and monuments fall into disrepair, make these changes at opportune times. Otherwise, leave... 5 years ago from a Green in Suncook, NH
No, these should remain due to historical significance, but no new references should be allowed. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Tampa, FL
Not from historical monuments and buildings, but there should be policies regulating the addition of religious artifacts and statements now. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Champaign, IL
Just as we have "Freedom of Religion" we have freedom FROM religion. The use of "In God we Trust" on the currency did not come into play until the 1950's, so it was NOT part of the original founding of our nation. We do not have... 5 years ago from a Democrat in Duluth, GA
I support the separation of church and state, but I don't approve of altering things like historic monuments to accomplish that. 5 years ago from a Republican in Katy, TX
Yes. The more secular the government becomes, the more of an insult it is to God. 5 years ago from a Republican in Oronoco, MN
Conflicted. I understand the historical importance of the references and respect that history but also understand why some folks feel it is alienating. 5 years ago from a Democrat in North Amherst, MA
Yes, but it shouldn't remove those references from buildings and national monuments. The references should be removed from new currency being printed, taken out of the Pledge of Allegiance, and not inscribed on new national monuments. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Coronado, CA
