"In God We Trust"

I do not trust god and you don't either. Either you go to the Doctor or you trust god. Either you have a standing army or you trust god. Either you trust god to heal you and protect you or you don't. Actions reveal those things we most trust to perform as we need them to. I know of no reason to trust god, and I know no theists whose actions reveal their trust either.

"In God We Trust is the official motto of the United States and the U.S. state of Florida. The motto first appeared on a United States coin in 1864 during strong Christian sentiment emerging during the Civil War, but In God We Trust did not become the official U.S. national motto until after the passage of an Act of Congress in 1956.[1][2] It is codified as federal law in the United States Code at 36 U.S.C. § 302, which provides: "In God we trust" is the national motto."

Mmmhmm. "In God We Trust" was added as a slap in the face to the godless communists, to show that WE were better than THEM.
