Does anyone de-god their paper money? I read something online about this recently. Apparently quite a few people do something to negate the word "GOD" on paper money, including a small red circle with a line through it over the word "GOD". I've also read that this is in fact not illegal, although the system would have you believe it is. I think this has to do with the law stating that one cannot mutilate money with the purpose of rendering it useless, which this action does not do. I've even seen a few such paper bills this was done to and no one even noticed when I spent them.
Just wondering how many atheists stand up for separation of church and state by doing this. It seems to me that printing IN GOD WE TRUST on money is a clear violation of the separation of church and state and implies a state-sponsored religion, which violates the first amendment.
