CBN A challenge to America's national motto has been struck down by a federal district court. Dr. Michael Newdow and the Freedom From Religion Foundation sued to have "In God, We Trust" deleted from U.S. currency.
The court stated there was ample body of case law and they could only come to one conclusion. The order rejects arguments the motto violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.
The brief also explains, "The national motto simply echoes the principle found in the Declaration of Independence that our freedoms come from God and not the state" and that the Establishment Clause is not intended to guarantee the public will not be exposed to religion or religious symbols.
