Do you guys/girls think "In God we trust" should be removed from U.S. money?

Granted, it's a cumbersome issue and it was added then (on paper money) to distinguish us from the "Godless Communist", but at this point isn't it a bit childish. Most Christians respond with "Oh, it's a good thing, it's what makes us number one", or "Why can't they just leave it like it is? I guess they have to cater to the will of the minority." America is not number 1 in a lot anymore, sure a couple things like war, but our education system is ranked fairly poorly especially compared to China, Japan, or Sweden, which have good education systems and are mostly atheists, but just because we're not number 1 doesn't mean we can't be, we just have to fix the problem. Also, I don't understand how they say it would be catering towards the "minority", all it's doing is making it neutral and "In God we Trust" was added to it, as it was never there originally, and it replaced e. Plurubus unum.

It should never have been there in the first place. There isn't really much to distinguish us from the "Godless Communists" except for possibly we are still here laboring in a debt based economy for corrupt puppets working for the world banks.

In God we trust is a lie and an insult to God. God and the state should have nothing to do with one another.
