Overthrowing The American Theocracy

WHAT HAPPENED

   Did you know that Teddy Roosevelt said it was near-sacrilege to stamp “In God We Trust” on American coinage?

     What do you think about Teddy Roosevelt? Good man? Rough Rider? A Christian man?

     Teddy Roosevelt was all this and more: he was a man who understood religious teachings.

     In a letter to William Boldly of November 11th, 1907, Teddy Roosevelt wrote:

         "My own feeling in the matter is due to my very firm conviction
         that to put such a motto on coins...not only does no good but
         does positive harm, and is in effect irreverence, which comes
         dangerously close to sacrilege....”
