Should we change "In god we trust" to "In guns we trust"

Posted by: tajshar2k

I'm pretty sure most Americans would trust their gun over god.

  • The idea is entertaining though.

  • "And on the third day, God created the Remington bolt action rifle to help man fight the dinosaurs... and the homosexuals" - one of my favorite lines from Mean Girls.

  • No, but "In God We Trust" shouldn't be there either. The U.S. is legally a secular nation.

  • It's kind of funny though because I think there are some Americans that trust guns more than God.

How about neither? Get rid of "In God We Trust".

USA really needs to catch up with Europe regarding church state separation.

Lol, triangle. That's why the British Monarch is also the head of the Anglican Church, right?

The "In God we Trust" thing is more politically motivated than religiously motivated. It was created in the Cold War as another means of defiance against the "Godless Commies".

Speaking of Britain and the Anglican denomination of Christianity, Anglicanism is the state-endorsed faith in the U.K., so yeah.

Pericles what do you mean that the US is legally a secular nation?
triangle.128k says2015-08-18T05:21:52.8452100Z
@Pericles Norway also has an official religion, that doesn't mean they're necessarily a really religious nation.
triangle.128k says2015-08-18T05:22:01.4246430Z
State-endorsed faith is more like the state getting involved in Church, not the other way around. The problem in the US is church getting involved in the state.

Well Teaparty1. We have no state religion, and specific constitutional verbiage baring any.

I wonder how a poll would turn out if it said: Should we change "In God we trust" to "In Reagan we trust".
