The original national motto was ""E Pluribus Unum". It was changed to "In God We Trust" in 1956 as part of the McCarthy communist witch hunt. I doubt that God was very impressed.

And as a point of fact some of the founding fathers were Deists. It is interesting that the first President attacked by what today would be called the religious right was Thomas Jefferson (frequently accused of being an atheist). Even Washington was held suspect, as he refused to take communion.
