Thread: "In God We Trust"

  1. #1

    Default "In God We Trust"

    Peace

    Does placing this statement on money and government buidings violate the seperation of church and state ?

    This is now being challenged in the U.S. Supreme Court

    http://us.rd.yahoo.com/dailynews/fc/..._religion_dc_1


    This article explains it like this:
    "A U.S. appeals court ruled that the lawsuit failed to show that the display had no legitimate secular purpose, that it has the effect of endorsing religion or that it has resulted in an excessive entanglement of government and religion."

    Peace

    Bunch of crybabies whining. I'm far from being a religion thumper but it should stay. A 5 will still be worth 5 and a 20 will still be worth 20 regardless what is written on the damn things. If someone is offended by the statement In God We Trust then lock your doors, and cut your wrists while dropping a plugged in blow dryer in your bath tub with you.

    If they would get rid of these things... there might be some commotion...

    What, we don't trust in God no more? The hell?

    I think that is what they are trying to say because your God may not be my God so what purpose is it to place that statement on money and government buildings, if the state has nothing to do with religion?

    If you want to take the reference to the Supreme Being off of the back, you may as well take the picture of a mass murder off of the front.



    He inherited a modest 10 salves at the tender age of eleven (1743), and by the time of his death (in 1799) the first G. W. had 316 slaves on his estate.


    The facts concerning George Washington are not taught school children. He was a hater of Native Americans even during the time when their wealth and alliances provided him with great personal fortune.
    Native Americans were called redskins without religious beliefs.

    These words of hatred gave permission to European Americans to terrorize, kill, maim and destroy Native Americans physically and culturally. Words are bad enough, but his behavior was unbelievable. He waged a personal war of genocide instructing Major General John Sullivan in 1779 to hunt the Mohawk like wild animals and to:


    "Lay waste all the settlements around... that the country may not be merely overrun but destroyed," urging the general not to "listen to any overture of peace before the total ruin of their settlements is effected." Sullivan did this reporting he had, "destroy[ed] everything that contributes to their support" turning "the whole of that beautiful region from the character of a garden to a scene of drear and sickening desolation." Washington's troops amused themselves by skinning the bodies of Indians "from the hips downward, to make boot tops or leggins."

    -Anthony F.C,. Wallace, the Death and Rebirth of the Seneca


    George Washington's troops skinned Native Americans like animals.

    Though they have many beautiful and fulfilling spiritual/religious concepts, the term "redskins" enabled European Americans to take away their identities and served the purpose of encouraging hate crimes against them. That is the false identity that "redskins" creates. A name that allows the cruelest punishment to a people, the conduct of active genocide against them. This stereotyping of the Native Peoples and their ancestors. REDSKINS is how European Americans justified killing children in the same way they would kill a coyote running across the sand.

    So don't try to take "God" off the money, take criminals off of it. Oops, I forgot this land was stolen so why not place the face of the biggest thieves on it.


    Question though. Why haven't they placed J. Edgar Hoover's face on a bill yet if that's the case?

    Most people in America believe in a God. Just because there are people who don't, doesn't mean it should be changed. Why put efford in something that's would upset a lot of people...

    I don't have a god or relgion, so I don't really care that much about this subject.

    Wisdom, does the fact that slavery was socially accepted and encouraged change your viewpoint at all? If George was born today, you think he would still own slaves?

    Oops, I forgot this land was stolen

    How do you suppose the natives came to own the land we now call america? Were they the first?

    What kind of business was Mr.Washington controlling that needed 316 slaves to operate ?

    I saw alw an order where God told a priest to kill a child molester or something and they argued how they could deny it in a court that said "In God we Trust."

    Interesting point.
