Lost (losing) Liberties: Our National Motto


This is from the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) who continues to fight for religious freedom in America:
null “We will be filing our amicus brief in Newdow v. United States Congress in the next 24 hours.

“The day those words are banned—“In God We Trust”—the day they are stripped from our coins and currency—we’ll be witnessing the beginning of the end of religious freedom in this country.

“If our National Motto can be declared unconstitutional simply because it reflects a basic truth of our religious faith – as Dr. Michael Newdow has charged in court, then any expression of your faith and mine can also be declared illegal. Our foundational freedoms will crumble.

“In just 24 hours, we will be filing one of the most important amicus briefs in the ACLJ’s history—perhaps, one of the most important amicus briefs in America’s history: arguing for the preservation of our National Motto, ”In God We Trust,” in the Newdow v. United States Congress case.

“Our amicus brief will be speaking not only for ourselves, and for you – as we always do – but we will also be representing 58 members of Congress. In fact, the entire Congress has been sued in this case!

“This amicus brief has significant implications. If Dr. Newdow is not successful at the Ninth Circuit, I assure you he will not stop there! He will take his case to the Supreme Court of the United States – therefore, we must lay the constitutional legal groundwork now, in this amicus brief.”

Note: Dr. Newdow also sued to get “under God” removed from the Pledge of Alegiance, but was unsuccessful.
