The U.S. Mint wants us to spend Dollar coins more. So what is their answer? Replace “In God We Trust” with more Presidents.
The Mint on Monday revealed the design of the new U.S. $1 coin, which will be issued in a series that will eventually include the faces of each U.S. president.
It will release four new presidential dollars each year, starting with George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison in 2007. The Van Buren dollar will be released in 2008 and the Fillmore in 2010.
Richard M. Nixon, who resigned in disgrace in 1974 in the wake of the Watergate scandal, will appear on the coin in 2016.
So, by these standards, it’s possible that Hillary could appear before Bill.
The gold color Sacagawea dollar followed in 2000, showing the Native American guide to 1804 explorers Merriwether Lewis and William Clark and her infant son.
The presidential dollar coin will be similar in size and color to the Sacagawea, but will bear no inscription on the obverse or face side. “In God We Trust”, “E Pluribus Unum”, the issue year and the mint mark will appear on the edge.
“As long as we have the paper currency out there, dollar coins will never be successful,” Gillis said. “We’re going to have to discard the $1 bill or mass produce so many of these coins so they’ll be out there at retailers.”
Convienence, money, profit. Are now coming before the Giver and Creator of these things.
God warned us about this kind of priority rearrangement in Deuteronomy 5:7
You shall have no other gods before me.

This could be some kind of sneaky attempt at a compromise, but don’t think anything will satisfy the secular cleansing crowd besides totally erasing all reference to God from every single American mint.
Unfortunately, probably so.
