The Satanists never rest. They want to do away with any reference to God. This country was founded on beliefs such as “In God We Trust.”
A federal judge has ruled that printing “In God We Trust” on United States currency doesn’t amount to a religious endorsement and is not a violation of the U.S. Constitution.
The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago made the ruling last week in a lawsuit filed by a self-declared Satanist. The Satanist argued that the motto propagates a religious view he opposes. A lower court had dismissed the lawsuit citing a Supreme Court decision that a motto on currency isn’t something people display prominently and thus people are not forced to publicly advertise views that clash with their own. That legalese is a bit confusing. But we think the decision was the right one.
The Satanist appealed to restore the suit, but the 7th Circuit refused, describing the phrase as a “historical reminder” of the nation’s heritage.
There are many references to God by the Founders of this country. The intent was never to promote a certain religion.
