"In God we trust" is not an statement of religius faith. It's just a way to say they don't trust in their state/federation. It's like "if you want to trust, trust in God, not in us, we don't even trust ourselves to do our jobs properly". That's why the God is irrelevant and the divine trustworthiness too. "The show must go on" would have maybe been even better, but it ended up taken by Hollywood or Broadway, or whatever, so there was that.

Sorry, @Null but I couldn't stop thinking:
1944 (Bretton Woods) "In the IMF we trust"
1955 (H.R.619) "- In the IMF trust we no more, we'll just pretend further. In GoLd we trust.
- Which gold? Do you really believe the gold is still there to back our dollars?"
- Oh, indeed, make that "In God we trust". Faith is what the dollar is based on, after all. We could as well be honest enough to print it on every coin and bill."

That would have been true if it hadn't been for secretary of the treasury McDuck.

CBS News is asserting that an execution gas is bad just because Nazis used it.


The logical fallacy here is literally named after Hitler. People need to stop using dick tactics like depriving states of the means to execute, and just get the death penalty actually repealed.
