Remove "In God We Trust" from US money. It was NOT always there. Added to US paper currency: 1957 (McCarthyism, Red Scare). Thus, 181 years of US history without this. (Prior: e pluribus unim = "Out of many, one").

Why Remove it?
EASY bit of activism
free-thinkers, atheists
support the US Constitution
"separation of church and state"
Imagine... 10%, 25%, 33%...

Religious Reasons to Remove it:
"God" on money is sacrilegious, irreverent.
Jesus threw the money changers out of Temple
Money ~ root of all evil
Makes "God" rote, "non-religious". Insults religion.
Government has no authority to tell you to trust in gods.

Ways to Cross it Out:
Do NOT cross out full phrase
More emphatic = just cross out the word "God".
Red circle around "God" and a diagonal slash line
clearly show that the "God" part is the offense.

Use a Stamper: Cost. Pre-planning.

Legal? Well, is it your "Intent" to make the money "Unfit"? (I think NOT!)
Whoever mutilates, cuts, defaces, disfigures, or perforates, or unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking association, or Federal Reserve bank, or the Federal Reserve System, with intent to render such bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt unfit to be reissued, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.
Title 18, Section 333 of US Code
