    Emphasis mine...
    To be fair, I think we both know the mindsets on which this was applied. I think I (even both of us being honest) can fairly say that this was a Christian idea, however, the law recognizes this as something different. You and I are correct that the LEGAL wording doesn't support ONE religion, but I think we can honestly say it was meant to support a Christian one (non legal sense).

    Everything is a conspiracy. They cancel each other out though, so it's fine.

    Not allowing, "In God We Trust", abridges the free practice of religion.

    That's funny coming from you considering everything you seem to hear from the left is a "Conspiracy".

    BTW, I thought you had me on ignore? I mean you seem to put everyone on ignore that doesn't follow your line. Of course the funny thing is you so called "put me on ignore" even though I didn't vote for Obama but just called you out on your right wing nonsense.
    Oh well, whatever floats your boat.

    Was it on our money when the country was FOUNDED? Tell me do you even know when it was put on our money? Can you tell us why it was put on our money?

    Much like Obamacare was originally a penalty, but then changed to a tax, this is the same way. BOTH were mistakes IMO, but there is now precedence to support them.
    Many see any tax as a penalty and the detractors of the ACA always called it a penalty...however if the Act calls for the IRS to regulate it it is most likely a tax. And that is how the SCOTUS saw it.
    Precedence has little to do with constitutionality. Institutional racial segregation had lots of precedence but ultimately was found to be unconstitutional.
    Precedence is a basis for legal argument but does not make for a guaranteed free ride.

    Not to worry, no one will be able to see it.

    Actually you are incorrect precedence does in fact act as a legal argument for a free ride. When the SCOTUS makes a decision it is VERY hard (not impossible though) for someone to over change that. Usually it takes at least a generation and some presidential stacking to accomplish a change.
