Here's your chance to let the media know where the people stand on our faith in God, as a nation..
NBC is presently taking a poll on "In God We Trust" to stay on our American currency.
Do your part and tell them what you think.
(Excerpt) Read more at msnbc.msn.com ...
done - In GOD we do trust!
I think they should stop doing this stupid poll and start doing some news investigation
This poll has been up and Freeped for what- 47 years now?
Removing it is losing big right now...
No, here's your chance to pump up the hit count on MSNBC's worthless website
I’m a Christian and think it should be removed. America doesn’t trust in God. So that statement on money is a lie.
It is upsetting that our Lord is mentioned on currency that will soon be worth nothing.
“Do your part and tell them what you think.”
No thanks. If they don’t like my money they don’t need to take any of it.
Done. Now I must disinfect my mouse after going there.
Yes, it should be updated to “In Obama We Trust”.
Yes, should be replaced with: “In Obama we trust.” (sarc)
Beat me by 50 seconds. :0)
I’m beginning to think this perpetual poll and links to it is some sort of scam to get the MSNBC site hits . Their cable operation is a disaster and they must need ad revenue.
Where is the choice ‘Hell NO!”?
I just voted. The fact that they contemplate asking this should be a warning to us all.
I can’t vote. It says “you have voted 1,325 times”
The title of the page reads:
‘Live Vote: Should In God We Trust be yanked?
Nice touch, MSNBC.
I think Matthews and Olbermann should be yanked off the air.
Sure, replace it with WORTHLESS PAPER
If we want to reflect the majority of the nation then we must remove it ...
No just since 2005.
If for no other reason, and there are other reasons, In God We Trust should remain on the currency out of long tradition; i.e., “the passing down of elements of a culture from generation to generation, especially by oral communication.” PC has long ago gone too far!
What an assanine question!
Question; Yes. It’s a violation of the principle of separation of church and state.
The separation of church and state is a legal and political principle derived from the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, which reads, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof . . .”
An August 15, 1789 entry in James Madisons papers indicates he intended for the establishment clause to prevent the government imposition of religious beliefs on individuals
MSNBC - A bunch of uneducated morons
Actually, for the great majority of Americans - we do trust in God. The question should have been "could a real Christian have voted for Obama?", and the answer is "No".
Meanwhile, this original poll is a meaningless excercise meant only to drive clicks to MSNBC.
Yes, it should be replaced with “In Marx We Trust”. /s
If we want to reflect the majority, we must create wealth by dividing wealth and giving it away.
If we want to reflect the majority, white males must redirect all assets to minorities and then commit seppuku.
If we want to reflect the majority, conservatives must forever be silenced.
If we want to reflect the majority, US laws must be subordinate to international law as defined by leftists in Brussels.
It certainly is with the leftist democrats.
Well, if they took a vote on “In Obama We Trust”, how do you think that would poll? Because ultimately, and in the final analysis, that’s what these polls are always about.
Correction.. its the Love of money is the root of all (types of) evil--- 1 Timothy 6:10. Money is just a tool and not evil of itself but if one loves, devotes self to money as a servant of it then corruption of soul ensues.
Should the motto “In God We Trust” be removed from U.S. currency? * 16899370 responses
11% Yes. It’s a violation of the principle of separation of church and state.
89% No. The motto has historical and patriotic significance and does nothing to establish a state religion.
I can see the results but not where to vote. Also, they claim the responses on this vote are close to 17 MILLION. Obviously using it to get hits.
That's what all these dumb website polls are. They're not in the least bit scientific so no one takes them seriously as polls. The whole idea is to create a controversial 'question' to generate traffic so they can charge their site advertisers more. I don't mind doing it for a website whose presence I'd like to help sustain, but why should we help GE/MSNBC's bottom line?
