Why is it that we can no longer say " one nation under God" in school, but the words "In God we trust" can remain on our money????

On a similar point, assuming there is a god who permiates all space and time, 'under god' would be correct, but 'engulfed by god' or 'swallowed by god' would be more accurate.

Or if pollution continues, it may be 'one nation, under smog'
