I do, because the US is not a single-religion state. Putting that on dollar bills basically says "every American has freedom of religion, but you still gotta believe in a god" to me.

If you actually have some "class" and are "one of the best" and "wise", don't block people when you run out of arguments. Don't be pathetic. Bye.

Yes, it's inappropriate and unconstitutional and shouldn't be there. The modern usage is another example of theistic propaganda from the McCarthyist era, and shouldn't have been allowed in the first place.
It doesn't personally bother me that much that it is there, aside from the constitutional issue and the fact it marginalizes nonbelievers. The similar addition to the Pledge of Allegiance is more egregious, in my opinion.6

Honestly I don't even notice it but I can understand the arguments against it. It wasn't added to our coins until 1864 and our paper money until 1957. This is in a country that's supposed to be neutral towards religion yet we see a growing encroachment of Christian symbolism in US government. Congress isn't supposed to pass laws respecting an establishment of religion. I say we return to our original currency and be proud of e plurabus unem which is Latin for "out of many, one". Thats way more unifying than pushing a god a decreasing number of people in the us believe in.
You can bet your ass that if atheists put "there are no gods" on the currency Christian groups would be flipping the fuck out. I think it's hypocritical.7
