Democrats Take "In God We Trust" Off The Nickel

Ok, it was only democrats at a school and the nickel was shown on the yearbook but still.

A Keller school district parent said political correctness has run amok at her daughter's elementary school, where the principal chose to omit the words "In God We Trust" from an oversize coin depicted on the yearbook cover.

Janet Travis, principal of Liberty Elementary School in Colleyville, wanted to avoid offending students of different religions, a district spokesman said. Students were given stickers with the words that could be affixed to the book if they so chose.

If that's not bad enough you're not going to believe this!

Ackerman suggested that the school could have used a different symbol for liberty, such as the Liberty Bell or the Statue of Liberty, if it was concerned about giving offense. But Gardner said those symbols may not be acceptable to everyone, either.

Who the hell is going to be "offended" by the Liberty Bell or the Statue of Liberty? Why do democrats have such a vicious hatred of freedom? Could you imagine being a democrat and having a negative reaction to those two symbols of liberty? How could one hate their country to that extent?

Where is this country going to? It reminds me of Soviet Union. Kind of scary.

The principal needs a history lesson. She needs to be reminded how this country came about in the early days. It was "IN GOD WE TRUST. She should leave this country, go some place where no one believes in God, that should make her happy. Then she could teach about whatever she wanted to without offending the people "who believe in God." Jane
