Godless coins

To the editor:

I would like to know whose stupid idea it was to take “In God We Trust” off our new dollar coins.

Yes, it is still on there, but why bother? You can no longer see it unless one happens to look on the edge of the coin, which eventually wears off and becomes smooth. Then you won’t be able to see it at all.

This nation was built under “One God,” and as far as I know “In God We Trust” has always been on our currency. Why change it now? Because some liberal is offended.

I keep hearing about freedom of speech. But what about my freedom? I say it’s time we quit getting our rights taken away and be heard.

They have taken the Pledge of Allegiance and prayer out of our schools. What next? Are they going to make us close our churches and pray in the dark corners of our basement, not to be seen or heard?

Some day all people who are responsible for these changes will have to face the “one and only God.” What will you have to say about your freedom of speech then? Because “my God” will have something to say to you.
