Atheist Dollar Bill
Self | 8/2/2010 | Bushbacker1

Posted on 08/02/2010 2:11:58 PM PDT by Bushbacker1

I received this dollar bill as change at a Publix in Lakeland, Fl.

I'm not disparaging Publix, just making note of where I got it.

The atheists are doing everything they can to get God out of our lives. If they don't believe in God, so be it! But, keep their beliefs, or non-beliefs, as is the case here, to themselves!

Is this still legal money?

Was that just stamped on it?

I would take it back to Publix, ask for the manager, and then request that he provide you with a dollar bill that has not been defaced. Take your receipt. If everybody who gets one of these demands a substitute, stores will stop accepting them.

I get defaced bills in my store all the time. My bank tells me they will eventually make their way back to the treasury to be destroyed.

Yes, it’s still legal tender. Yes, the God-haters continue their agenda...on so many levels.

That circle with the line in the middle is almost exactly like Barack Hussein 0bama’s signature except 0bama crosses the “t”.

That money is government property. It has been defaced. That’s why they can’t use real money in movies.

I noticed the stamp didn't say they didn't believe in God, only that they don't trust Him.

Oh well, hell's waiting....

Interesting, I googled “atheist money stamp”. I had no idea there were people out there who so hate the idea of “In God We Trust” that they were having stamps made and taking the slogan off of their money. Sheesh, a lot of work for something you think is a fairy tale.

They’ll just cram them into change machines, soda machines, etc. It doesn’t matter what they write, or what they believe or trust in...it only matters what you believe and trust in. This little ploy is not furthering their cause, it just shows how immature and stupid they are.

Their petty tricks may be self-amusing, but the Kingdom is unfazed.

They will acknowledge the majesty and power of the Lord our God.

If not in this life, then the next.

yes.

BTW, has anyone seen any money with Tim Geithner’s signature?

Why not?

What you saw is a reaction to your side not doing exactly that. If you push, expect push back. Way back when some people decided we needed God mentioned on our currency, wouldn't want some later society's archaeologist digging us up and thinking we were heathen (assuming Christianity would still be around in any recognizeable form).

Just write God hates you also and put it back in circulation.

I get a lot more of these "Where's George?" bills. Nothing like assisting the Government in tracking where I spend CASH.

That money is government property. It has been defaced.

It's still perfectly legal tender. It is only a crime to deface currency for fraudulent purposes (like pass off a 5 as a 20). So it's still legal to write "Happy Birthday" on that $20 in the birthday card, and for stores to mark a bill with a marker to check for counterfeits, and for people to use those penny engraving machines, and for atheists to cross-out God.

It will be be destroyed within the same lifespan of all bills, about 18-22 months.

Personally, I think it's a stupid ideological shouting match from both sides.

What do they have against Scientologists? I mean, disrepecting aliens and all.

They mention aliens? One would think most atheists believe in such things.

I don't believe in atheists. The proof is in the fact that they care. If the bill happens to get ripped while in your custody, it can be exchanged for a nice unmarred one at your bank, and then taken out of cirulation.

I would insist on doing business only with legal US tender. If I received this, I would simply hand it back and ask for a real US dollar bill.

The bill is legal, what they did is not. Defacing currency is a crime.

“Sheesh, a lot of work for something you think is a fairy tale.”

Yep .. that’s why I think they have deeper issues. I could care less what others believe. I could also care less if they took “In God We Trust” off of our currency. I wouldn’t waste my time doing the crap these idiot attention whores do to express their displeasure with other people’s beliefs.

Every time I’ve debated anything with an atheist, I always sensed that they had other issues in their lives that caused them to hate anything related to religion. It’s almost like they blame God for all of their failures and shortcomings yet they do not believe in a God. Sometimes their hatred seemed borderline insane too ... not unlike our “religion of peace” homicidal bomber friends in the Middle East.

My thoughts exactly. If I don’t believe in something I don’t waste time and resources showing my disbelief. I don’t burn down Santa Clauses or sock Easter Bunnies in the nose at the mall. Heck if I’m that scared of an “imaginary” being, I’d avoid the cereal aisle so I don’t see a box of Lucky Charms.

I have seen millions of dollar bills in my life. All of them but this one have “In God We Trust” on them. So if this represents the extent of the atheist presence in our society, I am not worried.

these people are like little children .
They seriously need to get a life, I can imagine them the whole 5 of them meeting at a starbucks(where else) laughing about their childish deeds and reporting to each other how they saw one of their signs.

Funny but i bet these fools down here moved south from up north and then said we should change this state and make it look like the crap hole we left.

Around here they put some big signs up only for one of them to be banged down less than a week later and another fell down by the wind . LOL
so much for their expensive advertising .

G-d doesn’t believe in atheists, therefore atheists do not exist.

No it isn’t. But modifying it to increase its denomination (with intent to spend it) is.

Yes those sort of things come out almost immediately about them, and yet they try to hide behind the mask of science as though they are fooling anyone except themselves.

I took the bill back to Publix and they graciously replaced it with another....without the stamp. The two individuals I spoke with were also upset about the bill. They’re taking it out of circulation.

Apparently I do! And, I'm not thin skinned. So, go pound sand!

Or, I have we touched a nerve of an atheist Freeper?

I’m not atheist. Who cares what’s written on money by some idiots?? Darn you are aggressive. Come out with the “pound sand” on me. I’m hurt deeply. If someone drill a hole in a silver dollar for an AA sponsee are you going to run to the USSS? Please. Get over yourself.

I’d take it and further deface it. Write underneath it, “Pretty scared of someone you say doesn’t exist.” And keep using it. Don’t let them get the last word.
