Actually the poll is "Should In God we Trust be Removed from Coinage". Overwhelmingly the answer is NO.No. Religion causes too many wars. Politics should be secular.
Just out of curiosity, but where exactly does seperation of church and state appear in the constitution? Does anyone know?I believe in the separation of church and state just like I believe in the second amendment and the entire constitution. We should be protected against the tyranny of religion as much as government. I think that "In God we trust" is more a statement of the people of the United States than the government.
Doesn't matter though, our currency isn't printed by the federal government anyway.
Maybe, but it wasn't. I love the history channel though. I'm a history buff and I didn't even know a great deal about that. The whole basis of the seperation of church and state was brought about by Thomas Jefferson in a letter that he wrote to the Danbury baptists when he was President. The gist of the story is they were worried they would get forced out by a sort of state sanctioned religion ala England back in the day, and he assured them that "there was a great wall" of seperation between the two.Maybe it should be.
