Man Changed Name to "In God We Trust"

Meet In God We Trust, formerly known as Steve Kruescher of Zion. Yes, the man's name change just got approved by a judge last Friday:

Steve Kruescher of Zion has legally changed his name to "In God We Trust." It's true. His first name is now "In God" and his last name is "We Trust." Lake County Circuit Judge David Hall approved the petition Friday.

"I feel fantastic," We Trust said. "I've been praying for this." The 57-year-old school bus driver and amateur artist says his new name fully expresses who he is as a person. "God has brought me through some very hard times," he said. "I feel this is a way to honor God and immortalize that phrase."

God seems to have approved:

He's already had to pay $246 for the legal petition, and about $150 for legal notices in the newspaper. He figures the total cost will be about $600.

And wouldn't you know it? He just received his government stimulus check in the amount of $600.

"It didn't surprise me," We Trust said. "God is with me."

At work, I dealt with a native guy whose last name was Nothing. At some point, one of his ancestors was told to pick a name, and he picked Nothing.

Something tells me this guy won't have many Wetrust descendants. Looks more like "wet rust" when you take the space out.

Does having a Swiss German friend with the name Grossenbacher count? ... actually I may be confusing the Swiss German spelling.


My bad, it's actually Isaac her son which means "she/he laughs".

Anyway you get the point.

God may have blessed him with that $600 stimulus check, but I think those of us who haven't changed our names are a little more blessed cuz we can keep the money.

IMO, A fine example of yet another typical egotistical, "look at me", "look what I can do!" Christian.

Many Christian demoninations bribe people with money and goods to spread their disease because they can't force people by violence like they used to for so many years because we have LAWS.

In short, I recommend we change the wording on currency to "In Santa we trust."
