In God The Mint Has Shrinking Trust

Note: This is a guest post by Eric Bush (age 11).


If you've seen a new presidential dollar coin, you may have noticed, only if you have good eyes, that "In God We Trust" and "E Pluribus Unum" have been placed in millimeter sized font on the side of the coin instead of in a larger font on the face of the dollar like other coins. For many, including me, this is outrage. This may have been a response to complaints about 1st amendment violations even though making "In God We Trust" visible is not preventing people from practicing their religion (or non-religion), nor does it establish any religion. I wonder what the presidents whose faces are on these coins would think of this matter. But because I can't ask them, I am encouraging you to comment on this post and tell me what you think.

I am a Christian and I don't need the Government reminding me of that with His name on money are anything else. Please quit trying to have the Government push God on people, that is the church and each of us as individuals to do. How many people did YOU personly talk to about Jesus today? Do you have the 10 Commandments hanging in your home, business, etc?
