In God We Trust
Interestingly enough, Theodore Roosevelt argued against the requirement of the motto on coinage, not because of a lack of faith in God, but because he thought it sacrilegious to put the name of Deity on something so common as money. This argument is rarely used by either side today. http://www.fact-index.com/i/in/in_god_we_trust.html
