New Dollar Coin Hides "In God We Trust"

And no, it is not a secular conspiracy to remove religion for money - although it should be!

The new dollars are set to feature the past Presidents of the United States in order from George Washington to Richard M. Nixon. Instead of a textured or ridged edge, the smooth rim will now hold such features as the mintmark, the date of striking, and the mottos “In God We Trust” and "E Pluribus Unum.” The design change is intended to allow space for larger portraits of the Presidents on the obverse side, and the Statue of Liberty on the reverse.

I'm sort of a coin geek. I have a million wheat backed pennies for instance. The thought of collecting these gives me a shiver or two of anticipations. Except that they are worth a dollar - I think I'll spend the Nixon coin on diet coke.

So god is only watching from the edge now, instead of fron the front or back? ;)

Or is god playing hide and go seek?

Or has the ACLU taken one more step towards eliminating GOD from all things governmental!! May GOD have mercy on their souls.
