Supreme Court Rejects Atheist Effort to Remove "In God We Trust" from US Money

The court didn't buy atheist Michael Newdow's argument that "by mandating the inscription of facially religious text on every coin and currency bill," the government was turning atheists into "political outsiders."

Atheist Michael Newdow, arguing on behalf of a group of atheists, said the motto is a government endorsement of religion and violates the First Amendment.

Newdow argued that "by mandating the inscription of facially religious text on every coin and currency bill," the government was turning atheists into "political outsiders."

The high court dismissed his case Monday without comment.

The phrase was first put on coins in 1864 and has been all currency since 1955.

Newdow has lost several cases in lower courts, including an attempt to remove "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance.

He also tried to keep government leaders from saying the phrase "So help me God" in the 2009, 2013, and 2017 presidential inaugurations. Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
