I don't even think that "In God WE Trust" has any place in the coin at all.

America was founded on Christian beliefs. If you went to the link and read it all the way through you no doubt noticed that the “Establishment Clause” of the U.S. Constitution, which reads:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.*

* = except in their national motto, on their money, and in tax code exemptions. Does not apply to executive orders with titles eerily similar to those the Constitution expressly prohibits.

It has always been allowed for the government to place the words of in God we trust or any other motto that they chose. With or without religious meaning behind it.

It is your American right to be able to fight to have it removed but it is also the rights of America and it's leaders to place it on there.
