Us Supreme Court Wont Toss The Words In God We Trust Off Coins

03.08.11 | Bob Price, Sarah Harnisch

The U-S Supreme Court won't hear an athiest's claim that the words "In God We Trust" on our money is unconstitutional. The court has refused to hear an appeal from athiest Michael Newdow, who considers government references to God an unconstitutional enfringement on his beliefs. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco has ruled that the national motto "In God We Trust" is ceremonial and patriotic and does not amount to a government establishment of religion. The high court let that decision stand.
