Since 1955
 

‘In God We Trust’ will remain on US money

The legal attempt to take the Christian phrase off bills and coins has been rejected by the Supreme Court. Atheist activists have lost other similar appeals in the last years.

The phrase “In God We Trust” will continue to be on every US Dollar bill and coin.



On 10 June, the Supreme Court rejected the case of Atheist activist Michael Newdow. He said the motto on the US currency is a violation of the First Amendment of the United States Constitution and an explicit support of religion by the government.



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 the legal challenge without comment.

The phrase “In God We Trust” was first put on coins in 1864 and was has been on all US currency since 1955.



Atheist initiatives led by Newdow have lost other cases, including an attempt to remove the phrase “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance of the Unites States. He also campaigned against the use of the phrase “So help me God” in the last three presidential inaugurations.
