This is a country of people with faiths in all kinds of gods, including people who do not believe or simply don't know if they do yet. This was a counter to the threat of communism in the 1950's and simply not needed to remain a strong country. We survived close to 200 years without this as our motto and having it absent in our currency. In fact, this divides the country and makes us weaker and panders to a particular group of people while isolating others.
