Paper Money: US $ Notes Celebrates 50 years of "In God We Trust"

This week marks the first 50 years of the inscription "In God We Trust" on US Paper Money. Prior to 1957 the inscription was on US coins during the Civil War. It seems though that the words meant much more to the Americans then than it does today.

This anniversary went unnoticed to a large extent.

I really wonder if it would matter at all if this inscription was removed from the back of US dollar banknotes completely.

You know the saying about wearing your heart on your sleeves, countries usually wear their hearts on their Paper Money. So does this inscription on US paper money banknotes mirror the heart of America?
