In God We Trust” was not added to U.S. coins till 1863 after a religious surge and onto paper currency until 1957. Fun fact: the words “under God” weren’t even in the original Pledge of Allegiance. This was later added in 1954 by congress.
Having God on our currency and in our Pledge of Allegiance fuels the false belief that the United States is a Christian nation. As declared in the Treaty of Tripoli, 1796, “…the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.” This was signed by president John Adams. Having God in our currency and in our Pledge of Allegiance directly disrespects those among us who are not of the Christian faith, and it should be removed.
