"The United States Treasury Department who are represented, by and for the people, choose to have ‘In God We Trust’ on our nation's currency," Sheriff Tribble said. "We have chosen to believe enough that we put it on our nation's currency. I choose, like the people, to put it on our patrol units. It's our national motto and the basis or root of the country."

The 2 Euro coin has writing inscribed around the rim depending on the country of origin. The Dutch version has "God zij met ons" (God be with us).
On coins of a certain country, no writing is visible but if you place the coin briefly in a fire, then a strange lettering appears: "One coin to rule them all ..."

Sometime you can see two policemen and a dog. In that case the dog can read and write.

(adaptation from an old communist joke, same as your policeman must have a partner, our former communist policemen always came in groups of three, that was the law at that time, and the people make jokes like: Q: Why they always are three? A: one can read, one can write, and the third is guarding two scientists)

Americans place a higher priority on preserving the religious freedom of Christians than for other faith groups, ranking Muslims as the least deserving of the protections, according to a new survey.

We think that would be an interesting class.

We suspect that an alternative class focusing on the Koran is not likely to be offered here in Arkansas.
