Supreme Court, Washington D.C.

(Worthy News) - The Supreme Court declined to take up a legal challenge to the inscription of 'In God We Trust' on coins and currency.

The court rejected the challenge from activist Michael Newdow, who claimed the inclusion of the phrase on American currency violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, the Washington Examiner reports. The Establishment Clause declares that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion."

A 1955 law passed by Congress requires all currency to include the phrase, although it first appeared on coins in 1864. [ Source: Washington Free Beacon (Read More...) ]
