- "I’m no lawyer… but how is that phrase not an endorsement of religion over non-religion? (Not only that, you know the phrase refers to the Christian god…)"
- "How is that phrase not Christian? How is it not a violation of church/state separation? How is it not a violation of the Establishment Clause?"
- "The judge was wrong, plain and simple.
I have nothing really to add, the words "In God We Trust" are clearly the state endorsment of a god. There presence clearly makes religious belief seem more acceptable, and provides all religon with a greater significance and respectability.
It seems to me also that the judge was clearly wrong and, given my posts United States of Atheism and US 1st amendment - contradictory?, it looks to me, admittedly a non-us citizen, like the founding fathers would be clearly against his judgment aswell.
Finally, If you'll excuse a topical plug -
would it not be more apt for the money's motto to be
Ingot We Trust?
