    Your vote not to remove "In God we Trust" from America is possible here.

    Of course it is just a poll -- but an interesting one never the less.

    in Christ,

    Lying to God is what got Anananias and Sophira killed. If we trusted in God we would not have troops all over the world. We trust in our military.

    I wonder if the Dutch, French, British, etc. felt that way in 1941.

    You may disagree with us being in other countries with our military, but it does not necessarily mean we don't trust in God. You say you trust in God yet you go to work every day to pay your bills.

    Was in unwise to go into the middle east with our military? Probably, but your cheap shot is easy to take from the comfort of your computer room. Talk that way to my good Christian friend who is in Iraq while his wife and 4 kids are back here and it would hurt them deeply.

    Quit listening to the anti war left for awhile and find some Iraqis who are very thankful to have Saddam Hussein gone.

    Did I think we should have gone into Iraq? No, but there was a lot of isolationism in 1941 too. History has shown it was best to get rid of Hitler. Time will tell on Iraq. Until then stop taking every opportunity to slam on America. This was a question about "In God we Trust" on our money and you had to take it as a way to spew out some anti-American sentiment. You should be thankful to live in such a wonderful place. Shame on you.

    I would say, dont remove it. I trust in God, and would like it on the dollar. If America itself says it does and acts differently, thats on America, not me.... I trust in God and would like for it to stay on the Dollar! :thumbsup:

    Being multicultural, we should put the Arab word for "God" on half the dollars and "JHWH" on half the coins.
