“In God We Trust” – Our National Motto – is under attack again.
If this sounds familiar, it’s because we’ve been defeating atheist Michael Newdow’s attempts to banish “under God” and “In God We Trust” in federal court for over a decade.
This time, his latest federal lawsuit is full of the same failed arguments: outlandishly claiming that our National Motto is “extremely offensive,” “bigotry,” and “persecution,” that atheists are “forced to proselytize,” and even comparing it to radical Islamic terrorism.
Sadly, this is not the only federal lawsuit against our National Motto. A self-described “Satanist” has filed a new lawsuit, claiming that “In God We Trust” on U.S. currency violates his constitutional rights and forces him to proclaim the “existence of” and “trust in” God.
We defeated attempts to remove “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance at the Supreme Court and lawsuits against the National Motto before.
Now we’re preparing to file another critical amicus brief in federal appeals court to defend “In God We Trust” from new Satanist attacks. Join our brief today.
We’re aggressively defending “In God We Trust” - our National Motto - from attack. We can win.

Fired FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee accomplished one thing: With his testimony, Comey’s case against President Trump collapsed like a house of cards. Not only did Comey’s testimony clear President Trump – admitting under oath that the President was...
