Liberty Counsel: Appeals court upholds “In God We Trust”

by D. Bennett

The Liberty Counsel reports that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that the nation’s motto, “In God We Trust,” does not violate the United States Constitution.

The Liberty Counsel filed an amicus brief with the court in support of the motto’s constitutionality.

The challenge was brought by Michael Newdow, who made headlines after his unsuccessful suit to get the words “Under God” out of the Pledge of Allegiance.
