It was no accident that our revolutionary forefathers kept God out of the Constitution. It did not evidence a lack of belief on their parts, but a stronger belief that that the government was a secular institution that should not be involved in religion. That is one of the greatest (one might even say sacred) of their legacies. Unfortunately, religious zealots have been trying to backtrack on that commitment ever since. By the way, I actually enjoy Normal Rockwell paintings, but I also enjoy comic books. I wouldn't call him one of the world's greater artists.
    Yardley, what year did they start using the "In God We Trust" motto on coins ? Better yet did all coins start having the motto at the same time ?
    I find this very interesting stuff. Thanks in advance.

    It was first used in 1864 on a coin. It did not become normal on coins and currency until 1908, when a law was passed requiring it on most currency. It did not become universal on all coins until 1938. Most people had assumed that the national motto was E Pluribus Unum (One from Many) since it was included on the Great Seal. However, prior to 1956 there was no national motto. (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_God_We_Trust)

    you might want to go read the posts that enticed that reaction from you. I've never started a thread with an insult on this, or any board, except maybe in jest. But I'm not all that good at ignoring them when they come flying my way either. And they do fly around here at times. But I agree, I'm usually embarrassed when I let my reactions get the best of me.

    Guess thats a benefit from using these boards. Helps build a little self control. Or at least reminds us once in a while why it's important.
