Atheist attorney files lawsuit demanding 'In God We Trust' be DROPPED from all U.S. currency

A California attorney has filed a federal lawsuit demanding the phrase 'In God We Trust' be removed from U.S. bills and coins.

Michael Newdow has already unsuccessfully tried to sue the government twice saying the phrase 'under God' in the Pledge of Allegiance should be scraped.

He filed the new lawsuit in Ohio on Monday saying the motto 'In God We Trust' is unconstitutional and violates the separation of church and state.

Mr Newdow also argues that the phrase should be prohibited from use on money in the 112-page document lodged with the federal court in Akron.

The lawsuit represents 41 plaintiffs from Ohio and Michigan, including many unnamed parents and children who are atheists or are being raised as atheists.

Defendants include Congress and various federal agencies.

That's what I have been thinking for sometime. All leftest professors, actors and musicians (everyone of them) can go over there to educated Islamist. However, once they'er over there they can't call back here collect.

I would rather be a Christian an have the Bible fiction, than to be an atheist and have it be true !

Call it fire insurance if you will !

So I guess we should trust no one not even G*d! What a sad state of affairs. 

On this day in 1956, two years after pushing to have the phrase “under God” inserted into the pledge of allegiance, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signs a law officially declaring “In God We Trust” to be the nation’s official motto. The law, P.L. 84-140, also mandated that the phrase be printed on all American paper currency. The phrase had been placed on U.S. coins since the Civil War when, according to the historical association of the United States Treasury, religious sentiment reached a peak. Eisenhower’s treasury secretary, George Humphrey, had suggested adding the phrase to paper currency as well.

Although some historical accounts claim Eisenhower was raised a Jehovah’s Witness, most presidential scholars now believe his family was Mennonite. Either way, Eisenhower abandoned his family’s religion before entering the Army, and took the unusual step of being baptized relatively late in his adult life as a Presbyterian. The baptism took place in 1953, barely a year into his first term as president.

Although Eisenhower embraced religion, biographers insist he never intended to force his beliefs on anyone. In fact, the chapel-like structure near where he and his wife Mamie are buried on the grounds of his presidential library is called the “Place of Meditation” and is intentionally inter-denominational. At a Flag Day speech in 1954, he elaborated on his feelings about the place of religion in public life when he discussed why he had wanted to include “under God” in the pledge of allegiance: “In this way we are reaffirming the transcendence of religious faith in America’s heritage and future; in this way we shall constantly strengthen those spiritual weapons which forever will be our country’s most powerful resource in peace and war.”

The first paper money with the phrase “In God We Trust” was not printed until 1957. Since then, religious and secular groups have argued over the appropriateness and constitutionality of a motto that mentions “God,” considering the founding fathers dedication to maintaining the separation of church and state.


Good factual statements. It could be added that Eisenhower was Supreme Commander of WWII American Forces in Europe, and had access to volumes of horrible reports on atrocities of the NAZI "heathens." That experience undoubtedly firmed his convictions to support and bolster Judaism and Christianity. When thousands of bodies of innocent civilians were discovered in Germany, "Ike" ordered that lots of pictures be taken, because "some day, some s.o.b. will say it never happened." Further, the Godless Soviets were every bit as cruel and barbaric as the NAZIs, but their role was covered by apologists.

"Separation of church and state" is not in the Constitution, and is mostly an imaginary creation of lawyers and judges. Individual states did once have official religions before the American revolution, and would levy taxes on other religions; that prompted President Jefferson's use of those words in his assurance to the Danbury Baptist Association that the practice could no longer be. The First Amendment wass directed at Congressional legislation to create a governmental religious body resembling the Anglican Church.

As a secular person, I still use the word GOD as a fitting term to reflect on the infinite all that is was and ever will be.

To all my aethist and secular friends, re-embrace your wholesome faithful citizens so the whole world can protect itself from the real evil ideological cannibals hiding behind religion.
As a secular person, I still use the word GOD as a fitting term to reflect on the infinite all that is was and ever will be.

To all my aethist and secular friends, re-embrace our faithful so we can all focus the ideological blowing things up for their higher power. In short, follow Ben Franklin's path, not the piss spitter Alinsky.

Mr Newdow and his 41 compatriots should be dropped from a low altitude airplane !

That is only fair, no GOD, no purpose in continuing their human existence.

Simple....

We change the motto.   "In God most of us Trust."

It would be better for our nation and or massive debt if we just levy a special tax on the people who use the money that states "In God We Trust" and are telling a lie. If you don't use American currency then you have nothing to worry about.

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Bill and Hillary Clinton Brutally
Mocked After Defending

View image on Twitter

Crooked Bill and Hillary Clinton were brutally mocked Monday after defending the Clinton Foundation on social media.

The Clinton Foundation’s official Twitter account tweeted Saturday, “ICYMI: President @BillClinton wrote on Facebook this week about our work improving lives in the United States and around the world, from fighting climate change to combating the opioid crisis.”

Former President Bill Clinton’s Facebook post served to correct the record about so called fake news smearing the Clinton Foundation. Naturally, he linked to far left sites such as Snopes and Politifact to debunk the smears.

After touting all the charity the Clinton Foundation brings to hurricane victims, farmers in East Africa and combating Climate Change, Bill Clinton unleashed on Breitbart News for spreading conspiracy theories and false information about the Foundation.

Nevertheless, spreading false information about the Foundation continues, apparently as part of an ongoing strategy to distract attention from real problems and, over the long run, to completely erase the line between fact and fiction.

For example, just a few weeks ago on MSNBC, during a discussion of the President’s disparaging remarks about Haiti, his designated defender repeated the ridiculous assertion that I had taken money raised for Haiti for personal use and was responsible for the apparent suicide of a Haitian who knew all about it. Thankfully, the host cut her off, refusing to provide a forum for known false conspiracy theories. I’m proud of the work the Foundation and I have done in Haiti and will give you a more detailed report on that soon.

These attacks on the Foundation began in earnest with the 2015 publication of the Breitbart-inspired book, Clinton Cash. I thought the Foundation staff did a good job debunking the book’s charges, but they were published as written even in “mainstream” outlets, and even now the charges continue to be repeated online and in forums favorable to those who make them.

I have never responded personally to these charges, but out of respect for our donors, partners, and those who work at the Foundation, I think I should—because as we see, attacks, no matter how outrageous, can have a long life.

Bill Clinton also argued Chelsea’s wedding wasn’t paid for by Clinton Foundation donations nor do any of them receive salaries.

No, Foundation funds were not used to pay for Chelsea’s wedding. It’s not only untrue, it’s a personal insult to me, to Hillary, and to Chelsea and Marc. It was a wonderful day that Hillary and I were grateful to be able to pay for.

Clinton also argued the foundation was given 4 out 4 stars from Charity Navigator, Platinum from GuideStar, A from Charity Watch, and a 20 out of 20 score for meeting all of the Better Business Bureau’s good practice standards.

Hillary Clinton tweeted: Want to hear the real story of the @ClintonFdn? Read this: 

 Trump supporters savaged the Clintons.

How about when Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Oman donated MILLIONS to your foundation when you were Secretary of State and then you conducted official US business with them? 

What about how Haitian villages that you raised money for are STILL without the homes, schools and infrastructure you promised for them? Where did it go Hillary? Where's that money? Why did you plunder the great people of Haiti? 

  

Unless it explains

Benghazi 33,000 missing emails  Haiti  Destroyed electronics  Missing money
Uranium One Etc

Then no. Nope.  
Not on Presidents day.  

Care to tell us how much the Foundation pays out in salaries each year? 

 

Slush fund? Pay-to-play? Salaries for Sid Blumenthal?
Fraud in Haiti?  The vast majority of funds don't reach people in need?
That's the real story, right?
