Feds Erase "In God We Trust" From Face of Coins - Tiny Scratches on Edge Don't Cut It (

Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Law Center, commented, "It is astounding that Congress has effectively done what atheist litigants have been unsuccessfully trying to do for years -- erase all reference to God from our money."Continued Thompson, "I encourage the public not to use the coins, and petition Congress to repeal the law under which they are being minted.
