Maybe if we quit putting a phrase in direct contradiction on our money and government seals that we can begin to start making progress.


TheBertinator3000

I'm envious of your optimism!


dmtdmtlsddodmt

Could you imagine the uproar if we tried to remove "under god" from the pledge of allegiance? Just another thing for them to feel "persecuted" for even though it wasn't added until the 1950's because of anti-communist propaganda.


kent_eh

Or just remove the constant reciting of the pledge entirely - it looks extremely cultish.

Hot_Pollution1687

Considering that wasn't added til the 50s I believe


LookMaNoPride

I watched a Nazi rally that was held in the states before the war on YouTube the other day and they said the pledge. I had forgotten that it was added, and it felt strange that everyone did the thing I do when forced to say the pledge and left “under god” out.


porgy_tirebiter

Fun Fact! In God We Trust only started appearing on currency in 1955! Also Under God was only added to the Pledge in 1954! To paraphrase Justice Alito, praising God in government functions is not deeply rooted in the Nation’s history and traditions. Edit: Looks like I’m wrong about the money! In 1955 Eisenhower passed a law adopting In God We Trust as the official motto and mandated it on currency, but apparently this was just codifying something that was already being done. The Pledge part is true though! I’ve had it confirmed by actual super old people!


LorddFarsquaad

But don't you know the reason we have school shootings and trans people and abortions is because we took God out of schools?


JimJee123

Isn’t it interesting that the moment we took god out of school, black people started existing? Answer that liblerals.


porgy_tirebiter

Of course! We had a shit ton of school shootings prior to 1954, before “under God” was added to the Pledge. Duh!


lingh0e

We HAD to take God out of school. He was WAY out of line. Waving his penis at the lunch ladies, eating glue. Once he even left the unopened milk carton from his lunch in his locker... over an entire weekend. It took days for that smell to dissipate. That kid needs to be on ritalin or something. Massive ADHD case with ZERO accountability from the parents.

This was probably stamped by a fourteen year old who only just found out there are people who aren't Christian a few months ago.


Tung-Mai_Bhung

/r/atheism is the #1 reason I don't like to talk about being atheist.


Radioactivocalypse

And as a Christian, I'm in the same boat. It's the right wing super religious hypocritical loonies that mean I rarely bring up my religion because they'll assume I'm one of those people. It's the extremes on either end that make the headlines, and us ordinary folk who are stuck silently doing our day to day lives quite happily. *Sigh*


Tung-Mai_Bhung

Besides the extremists, the only religious people that I have a problem with are the ones who use it to grift for money, or the people that use it as a constant crutch, thinking it will solve/excuse all their problems instead of actually doing something themselves. Everyone else, I'm pretty much cool with. It's not like science can answer all of life's questions and mysteries either, I understand people seeking more than our mere "mortal" knowledge.


PermissionOld1745

Yep, like any faith, or lack thereof, the extremists fuck it up for the rest of us.


empire314

Dantez77

FuchsiaPalette

As a christian militant atheists like the kind from r/atheism make me idk… sad/upset? Like there’s this soap opera based on bible tales (yes it exists lol) and you get that comment mocking what it’s about and the people watching it, or also a video I remember of a grandpa with Alzheimer’s filled with wholesome comments and there was a comment saying they hoped God stay with him, to which someone replied making fun of them for mentioning sky daddy. And there’s always a comment war after. Like… unless someone’s being mean, it doesn’t matter what you believe in.

elementofpee

Generalized quotes are sexy. Nuance and context are not, apparently.


Sweaty_Hand6341

Crazy shit is before 1957 no US currency had “in god we trust” on it. This country is built upon revisionist history. Edit: to clarify, in 1913 we created the centralized banking system called the federal reserve, which was the first federal issue of paper currency (dollar, five dollar, etc.) Before the federal reserve bank existed *some* of the designs for coins had “in god we trust” since the late 19th century.


RadicalLad25

Not entirely. This first stared cropping up in the Civil War when sides started saying God would have been on their side. They would then start putting “In God We Trust” on their currency. It wasn’t official, but the 50s were not the first use of it.


facw00

Not actually true. Paper currency didn't have it until 1957 but it started appearing on coins during the Civil War and largely stayed there. Which of course does not make it at all appropriate, and it was still political (just trying to indicate that Union was not any less Christian than the Confederacy, instead of trying to make the US out as better than the godless Soviets)


SimpsLikeGaston

This, it was a Union slogan. “As he died to make men holy, let us die to make men Free, His Truth is marching on”


Ographer

In 1954 they added "under God" to the pledge of allegiance, so there was still certainly a surge of religion in politics.

Please don't stamp ANYTHING onto money as it makes it unreadable to some bill counters.


twelfthcapaldi

Yep, I count the money in a casino and our count machines reject these. Not really mildly interesting, but mildly annoying. Also more common than you’d think.


Derura

Allow me to ask, at what point of defacing the money does it still counts as legal tender? And at what point does your machine fail? Also, since you mentioned it is common, what is the most interesting defacing you came across?


twelfthcapaldi

Casino’s don’t really care if there’s writing or stamps on them, the bill validators in the slot machines will still accept and process them no problem. Our count machines in the back are… temperamental. So as the machine is attempting to read the bill, it won’t be able to and it will send it into a rejection pocket. We then have to manually input the currency amounts for those bills. Now, when we send deposits to the bank it sounds like they go through bills and get rid of these as they find them. We see a lot, most common are ones like this, Trump 2020 on $20 bills, and Where’s George advertisements. Also what we call the religious wars.. people either blacking out the “in god we trust” or circling, highlighting, or underlining it. Weirdest one I’ve seen so far was one that someone wrote an address on it and said they’d been kidnapped or something. It was actually kinda unsettling and we turned it in to the local police department, just in case.


Derura

Thanks for sharing


JuicyJew_420

I would think probably when the denomination is no longer clear. IIRC there's nothing specifically illegal about putting a stamp like this onto a bill, it would become illegal were one to put 0s after the 1s to try and pass it off as a $10


twelfthcapaldi

This. Also if the serial number isn’t legible, and more than 50% of the bill must be present (including the serial number). Where I’m at I don’t typically run into these issues though since the bills have already gone through one checkpoint via the slot machine. It’s very hard to fool those, but people do try.

throwaway-boxer

> It's shocking how many people in my area don't know that there is more to life than being fully consumed by politics. I'm just sitting over here wondering if I should go into the sticker business.


Rubcionnnnn

I think it's hilarious. The people who out these stickers on didn't spend two minutes to read why has prices are so high. Hint, it has nothing to do with the government and everything to do with oil companies trying to squeeze out as much money as they can short term because demand has dropped substantially and will continue to fall.


Saint_The_Stig

I mean technically it is because of *other* governments who *are* oil companies. Though you are right about it being artificial scarcity for one last hoorah before oil is no longer a major fuel (it will still be massively used for plastics and other stuff other than fuels though).

The US should unironically change their motto back to et pluribus unum. 1 because it is the original motto 2 it is in Latin so it just sounds cooler


smartasswhiteboy

The only thing that should be on money is e pluribus unum. The God thing was added when Abraham Lincoln was pestered by a bunch of ministers to add it to money, so it he agreed to get them off of his back. He was busy with more important things like a Civil War. Teddy Roosevelt hated it, and had it removed from 1907 gold coinage, but there was an uproar about it, so we've been stuck with it ever since. With the irony totally going over peoples heads about God and money. But this is America. The hypocrite capital of the world, where churches don't pay taxes with their God money.
