I think it should be removed. It's a clear violation of the first amendment of our Constitution. I also think the phrase "under god" should be removed from our pledge(s) - America's pledge and Texas' pledge (and any other states who may have included it). In the case of Texas, it was only included a few years ago. What with that and the idiots trying to work ID into our science curriculum, I feel like my state is constantly taking steps back toward the dark ages.
The blind are actually able to develope systems for managing their paper money. They fold one, five and ten dollar bills differently, and the same goes for the rest of the demoninations. For example, a blind person might fold a one dollar bill in half vertically, a five dollar bill horozontally, and a ten dollar bill diagonally. There are other methods a blind person might use for keeping track of paper money, if they use paper money at all.
I agree with your point, I just thought I'd post an interesting fun fact. =)
I'm surprised more Christians don't see the motto on currency as being against the teachings of the Bible. You've got the story in about Jesus overturning the tables of the money changers. There is also the quote that "it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God".
I don't understand why people feel so adamant that the motto be on the currency in the first place. What purpose does it serve? Does it remind people to thank God before buying stuff? "In Jesus' name, I buy this Coke Zero and bag of Doritos".
As I understand it, "In God We Trust" was added to money because of the Red Scare. It was supposed to help unite Americans against a common enemy. There's no reason for it to be there anymore except to give Christians reason to claim this country was founded "under God," which is of course untrue.
