“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 new 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.
Yet it’s this lawsuit that is extremely offensive and extremely wrong legally.
We defeated Newdow’s attempt to remove “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance at the Supreme Court and helped ensure his last lawsuit against the National Motto failed.
Now we’re preparing to file another critical amicus brief to defend “In God We Trust.” Join our brief.
We’re aggressively defending “In God We Trust” - our National Motto - from attack. We can win.
