Coin image omits 'In God We Trust'

Star-Telegram 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.

This is absolutely obscene
Janet Travis, principal of Liberty Elementary School in Colleyville, wanted to avoid offending students of different religions,
What religion does not worship God?
a district spokesman said. Students were given stickers with the words that could be affixed to the book if they so chose.
Oh that was nice. Did the school district pay to have the stickers printed?
Debi Ackerman of North Richland Hills said she is offended by the omission. It's yet another example of a politically correct culture that is removing Christian references from all public places, she said.
Not just Christian, in this case. They may have different names for Him, but most religions worship God.

I think it is so wrong to confuse our kids. For hundreds of years this country is a country under God. If we want our kids to grow up strong, we have to be who we were for hundreds of years. We fought to get where we are and we never put our head down. Why NOW?
