Supreme Court Rejects Atheists’ Case To Remove “In God We Trust” From Money by jesusjnr(m): 11:10am On Jun 11
Earlier today, the Supreme Court
rejected an appeal from a group of atheists trying to get “In God We Trust” off our money. (It’s case 18-1297 in case you’re curious.) This was the most recent case brought forth by atheist activist Michael Newdow , most famous for his unsuccessful battle over “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance.

Last August, the Eighth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled unanimously (3-0) against more than two dozen atheists, their children, and two groups named in the lawsuit. They said the phrase didn’t violate the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause and Free Exercise Clause, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), or the Equal Protection component of the Fifth Amendment.

The judges said that the motto was part of an established tradition in the U.S. going back to our founding and that the phrase wasn’t unfairly coercive. (One judge didn’t concur on some of the analysis, but the end result was the same.)

The Constitution does not prevent the Government from promoting and “celebrat[ing] our tradition of religious freedom,” even if the means of doing so — here, adding the national motto to U.S. money — was motivated “in part because of religious sentiment” … Placing “In God We Trust” on coins and currency is consistent with historical practices.

… we recognize that convenience may lead some Plaintiffs to carry cash, but
nothing compels them to assert their trust in God. Certainly no “reasonable observer” would think that the Government is attempting to force citizens to express trust in God with every monetary transaction.

Newdow, who has been filing similar lawsuits across the country (hoping that one court of appeals will eventually rule in his favor), was livid at the time:

Michael Newdow, a lawyer for the plaintiffs, in an email
called it “utterly revolting” that “the history of governmental denigration of a suspect class should trump [the] principle” that neutrality be the “touchstone” for analyzing claims under the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause.

To be sure, no one was really expecting a different result. But there have been moments of dissent within judicial ranks. In this ruling, one judge did not concur with part of the majority’s ruling, and in May of 2018, a different judge actually sided with the atheists . (Newdow’s Pledge case only
went to the Supreme Court after an Appeals Court voted 2-1 in his favor.)

After the judges unanimously ruled against him, and the full Eighth Circuit refused to rehear the case, Newdow threw a Hail Mary pass to the Supreme Court. He argued that this case was the “perfect vehicle to bring clarity” to the Court’s understanding of the Establishment Clause. After all, the national motto is “a clearly exclusionary religious claim” and the Court needs to figure out whether “religion” ought to be synonymous with “Monotheism.”

The other argument Newdow made was that the Court needed to answer the question of whether the Constitution permits the “disregard of devout atheists.” As he saw it, putting an explicitly religious phrase on currency was doing just that.

The legislature’s “goal” in choosing “In God We Trust” to be the nation’s motto was not to honor “religion’s role in American life,” but to honor the role of one specific subset of religion — i.e., Monotheism. This Court can use this case to expose and highlight that key fact so that true religious equality and freedom can thrive under an Establishment Clause jurisprudence that is no longer devoid of the clarity it has been missing for so long.

This case would also be an excellent one to ensure that the claim made by the Eighth Circuit — i.e., that a “historical practices and understandings” analysis is now to be used when Establishment Clause violations are alleged — is correct.

The justices didn’t see it that way. That’s mostly understandable. It’s not like lower courts are divided on this issue — Newdow might say they’re all wrong in the same direction. But the end result is that the Supreme Court didn’t feel the need to step in to resolve anything. Your need four judges to agree to take up a case. Those votes weren’t there on this case. The case was dismissed without comment.

By my count, there are only three circuits left that haven’t ruled on this issue. You can bet Newdow will keep going until he’s exhausted all his options.

They are coming up gradually but it's not yet their time, time is coming when they will dominate all the three arms of government, by then nobody can stop whatever the atheists call for!

The Bible foretold a time when the atheists will eradicate religion completely, by that time only the TRUE Christians will continue doing what Jesus asked them to do while all the false religious groups claiming Christians must have been rendered inactive! wink

Some atheists think religion is the problem and use instances of nations in Africa such as Nigeria to drive their point, but the story of the USA which was founded upon religious principles by her founding fathers, is an example that proves the otherwise.

For the US is the undisputed world leader and No 1 superpower on Earth, so could it possibly be a coincidence that it was a nation which was built on the foundations of religious principles as was clearly reflected in the inscription of "In God We Trust" in her national currencies that holds that position?

Certainly not, for it's religion that distinguishes the US from her counterparts who don't have such religious principles.

And it's also worthy of mention that the US dollars which have the "In God We Trust" inscriptions is also the undisputed world number 1 currency.

Speaks volumes for those that want to know the truth.

The world power to have served the longest term is the Roman Empire!
They also claim to be ruling with Christ's grace due to their religious setting {Catholic Church}
America is surely serving a purpose that's protecting God's people {Jehovah's Witnesses} in that they declared freedom of speech, expression and worship, otherwise there wouldn't have been any chance for Jesus' group to be orderly arranged as we're having it today!

But Satan shot himself in the foot! How?
Satan wanted to promote immorality and at the same time stop Jesus' group from flourishing, these two can't work for him as he declare FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION!

That is how God's people were released from false religious groups to gather together as a global family!

Soon the atheists will overthrow all the religious members of the American parliament and eradicate religion throughout the earth! Revelation 17:16

The gay rights, abortion rights etc., are developments for it wasn't the founding principles that the US was built on.

And I believe such ungodly development is the reason they are gradually shedding their grip on their position as the top nation on Earth, for it was their founding religious principles that brought to that position, so it's expected that if they lose that, that they'd consequently lose the status that came as a result of such principles.

Moreover that the nation was founded upon religious principles don't mean that it was perfect and doesn't break it, but that it serves as a basis of judgment and a yardstick for the nation.

US became world power because they bombed 200,000 people in Japan during the second world war using the atomic bomb which was the idea of an irreligious scientist.

Now this emanated from american judges who know about the US history and traditions more than most do, so maybe you are the one actually rewriting the history of the US, for "In God We Trust" wouldn't be in the US currency, in addition to "one nation under God" in the US pledge of allegiance, and also the ten commandments in the Bible that was mandated to be placed in all schools in the US etc., if it wasn't in consistent with the US tradition and historical practices.

Well next time when you take up any denomination of the US currency, take a very good look at the "in God We Trust" inscription even If you don't believe He exists, for it's officially the belief of the most powerful nation on Earth that He does exist, and not just that, but that they believe in His existence to the extent of placing their trust in Him.

For that should give you the official opinion of how the US achieved their number 1 status.

US did not achieve their number 1 status because they believed in God; This is like concluding that a business man is successful because he is a ritualist instead of looking for the actual things that made him successful.

They have the best Military in the world aided by technology which was a result of years of research by scientists.

I can name a lot of countries that are more religious than the US yet not prosperous.

If God made US the number 1 country in the world because they trust in him then the Number 2 country should be the country that put the second most trust in God but instead we have China a country that have sworn to fight the concept of God.

I can see you anti-God, Antichrist sentiments has made this a very bitter pill for you to swallow that the undisputed number one nation in the world was founded upon religious principles.

For you began by disproving the fact that they were founded upon religious principles, when that was put to nought, next is that it's not responsible for the position that the US has attained, but the US certainly knows better than you, for if not it would have been "in science we trust" but instead it's "In God We Trust".

So i'm not going to keep wasting my time arguing with you, for you opinion is inconsequential in this case for the US has officially put their trust in God from their founding, and has consequently achieved this number position, so who are you to tell them otherwise?

It's obvious that you are ignorant of how these things work for its exceeds the scope of your mentality.

So keep chasing shadows in that respect.

Are you saying joining a religious group which you want us to believe it's the only organization that God recognizes in the world , is the only way to salvation or what ? You haven't made yourself clear.

Or do you mean , if I'm not part of JW I'm not on the right path and a true worshiper of God ? pls what are u saying ?

Do not let your heart be troubled about my post and do not hold any grudge against me because it's just a post like any other person have commented. But if you're feeling something demanding a vital step to be taken, it's just two ways:
(1) Make further effort to know more about what i've said. Try to meet those concerned and learn more from them because this is not the appropriate place for us to teach people all that we know regarding God's kingdom! Act 9:6

OR

(2) Ignore completely and turn off your mind. Just take my post for another miscreant spewing rubbish on social media! Act 26:24

That is the way our Master, Lord and King taught us to make the presentations, of course it will make hearts burn but don't panic, it's just a SIMPLE presentation! Matthew 10:13

If you carefully consider Jesus' presentation, you'll notice that it is about JOINING a group where you can learn to grasp what's coming to happen on this earth! John 3:16 compared to Matthew 19:21 and Matthew 8:22
In all that i quoted above note the point of emphasis there, Jesus never said all religions claiming worshipers of God are OK. But insisting the must leave one that is common for another that is uncommon!

Cain killed Abel for just one reason : why must God accept the worship of one and reject the other?

So there is pure worship gaining divine approval today! I'm telling you to find those practicing it {Matthew 7:14} don't think all these divers religious groups with contradicting teachings and conflicting doctrines all belong to the same God! Matthew 7:21-23

"In God we trust" was adopted in 1956 so it is not something that came from the founding fathers.

The USA is not number 1. You keep proving the atheists right with your religious ignorance.

First, the Briish pound has been stronger than the dollar for many years as far as I can remember. Charles Darwin is on the 10 pound note.

Secondly, the USA ranks below many countries when it comes to many healthcare and development indices.

Many judges agree with atheists. The supreme court is conservative. With the next elections an some of the judges retiring, things could change.

Please, learn the whole story before you comment.

(2) Ignore completely and turn off your mind. Just take my post for another miscreant spewing rubbish on social media! Act 26:24

That is the way our Master, Lord and King taught us to make the presentations, of course it will make hearts burn but don't panic, it's just a SIMPLE presentation! Matthew 10:13

If you carefully consider Jesus' presentation, you'll notice that it is about JOINING a group where you can learn to grasp what's coming to happen on this earth! John 3:16 compared to Matthew 19:21 and Matthew 8:22
In all that i quoted above note the point of emphasis there, Jesus never said all religions claiming worshipers of God are OK. But insisting the must leave one that is common for another that is uncommon!

Cain killed Abel for just one reason : why must God accept the worship of one and reject the other?

So there is pure worship gaining divine approval today! I'm telling you to find those practicing it {Matthew 7:14} don't think all these divers religious groups with contradicting teachings and conflicting doctrines all belong to the same God! Matthew 7:21-23
God bless you!wink
I see !

I knew where u're driving at, I just wanted u to state it clearly so that we can start from there. Or maybe, I should help you voice out what you've been very timid to say? ''that the only path to inheriting God' kingdom is by being a member of JW, that they are the only Christian denomination that has the true teachings of the kingdom . Isn't it ?
