“In God We Trust”? Oh, Please

Written by 

It’s rare that I applaud a fool, but this time I think the Lord would as well. Notorious atheist Michael Newdow, he of the easily ruffled sensibilities and eagle eye for stealth Christianity, recently brought yet another lawsuit. No surprise here: the Feds’ money offends him because it bears the motto, “In God We Trust.”

Given the utter fraud that is American currency, such sacrilege undoubtedly offends the Almighty, too. Would you want your name stamped on every worthless scrap of paper or metal the Fed contaminates? 

But of course the godless American courts dismissed the case — which should be a clue to every Christian that Newdow’s onto something. Yet believers caterwauled when he initiated this suit and a similar one against the pledge of allegiance. Why?
