We, the undersigned, petition the Bureau of Engraving and Printing of the of the United States Treasury to remove the statement consisting of, "In God We Trust" from all future currency created in the United States of America.

It is our firm belief that it is unconstitutional to force ones thoughts of God, or a god upon another American. We have the right to religious freedom, as well as the right of freedom from religion. For those who are not believers in God, or a god should not have to feel as though it is a wrong belief due to the symbolism on our money. Nor should they be made to feel out of place due to the forcing of the idea of a god onto them. The American society has more faiths then Christianity and other deity based beliefs, so the American citizens shouldnt be forced or stereotyped as being one. Many people come to this country so they can be free to express themselves religiously, and to place the comment on the back of the currency we feel is going against our right, and to remain fair to all other beliefs it shouldnt have a place on our money. Unless you want to make a different currency for each belief it would save many problems and contrasty if the line were simply removed from the U.S. currency.
