“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. Chip in $5 or more to DOUBLE your impact.

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...

President Donald Trump has just fired FBI Director James Comey. President Trump’s letter states that Comey is “not able to effectively lead the Bureau.” President Trump's action is not only appropriate, but represents the correct action taken against Comey who has become a renegade FBI Director.
