What if churches started minting their own coins or barter currency into circulation ala the Liberty Dollar?

First question: is that legal? Forgive my ignorance on this matter.

so tell me this...how is it that casino's, amusement parks and kid's restaurants like Chucky Cheese can exchange FRNs for their own currency in form of chips or tokens for use in their own establishment? What law allows for this??

First for stability the coins need to be minted in a uniform manner and then to help it hold its value it must be guaranteed for purity. This was the reason that the constitution said the federal government was to be the only one to make gold and silver coins.

They don't make those available for as tender for public debts. And none of them make a coin that is made of gold else every one would walk off with them.

Any way why not just use the gold and silver coins currently minted by the federal government. If business just started saying they will accept gold and silver dollars as tender and if enough do that by pure popular demand we could end the use of the federal reserve note. I know for myself if some one offered me silver or gold for a job I would accept it.

The origins of common law from Alfred the Great occured from the private system of church mediated trials (shouldn't be confused with canon law or the catholic system). If you pick up a bible, you'll see its better to go to your brother or get fellow Christians to mediate then to take it to "the pagans", which is shameful as Paul says in one of his letters. It is entirely civil type suits.

This had a long history apparently, and is quoted by Alfred in his laws.

You could base a private money system off that. Tempory liens and credits given in private judgements (acting therefore like legal tender for anyone participating).

The government would seize the Church's assets, most likely. :p:(:mad:
