"a tour de force of historical research, [which] unequivocally shows that there was a purely religious purpose and intent behind putting God on our coinage."

13 plaintiffs have filed suit to have the religious phrase "In God We Trust" removed from money, claiming they can definitively prove that when it was added to money in the 1950's, the motive wasm, in fact, religious, and not civic.

Think the SCOTUS will blow it off ot avoid controversy or hear it and enter a decision?

  • It could be worse!  You could have plastic money like we do.  That stuff is a bitch to count out.

  • it never should have happened in the first place! im not surprised in the slightest that they found historical proof that it was all about religion...well politicizing religion. i only read the claims, but i know the history and honestly, if taken seriously they make a really good case. but with the SCOTUS having had a big case in June and the huge DOMA case i bet they're gonna bury this.
