Supreme Court rejects case challenging In God We Trust motto on nations currency

The US Supreme Court on Monday rejected a challenge to the motto “In God We Trust” being displayed on American currency.

The motto was called into question by Michael Newdow, who stated that the inclusion of the phrase violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. The Establishment Clause states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.”

Newdow also argued that the phrase violates the Fifth Amendment’s due process clause because it forces Atheists to utilize currency that includes a religious connotation.

The US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit dismissed Newdow’s case in 2018 because the phrase “does not compel citizens to engage in religion.” The Supreme Court’s order allows this decision to stand.
