A new lawsuit filed on behalf of several Atheist plaintiffs argues the phrase "In God We Trust" on U.S. money is unconstitutional, and calls for the government to get rid of it.
Sacramento attorney Michael Newdow filed the lawsuit Monday in Akron, Ohio. He'd unsuccessfully sued the government at least twice challenging the use of the phrase "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Throughout much of his lawsuit, the word appears as "G-d."
Your thoughts on atheists, /pol/?
What a waste of time and money (literally). I can't imagine being such a butthurt faggot that the writing on the money triggered me into starting a lawsuit. These new "atheists" are just shit disturbers to the extreme.
>Libshits still using physical money
C'mon! It's called a card, do you really want to touch filthy currency that everyone has handled without washing their hands? Fucking degenerate, filthy demoshits. Those singles where in a STD tainted g-string at one point in their circulation, gross.
Separation of Church and State is absolutely nowhere in the Bill of Rights, Constitution, or any other Federal Document.
It was created by Hippies and Democrats in the 90s to fuck over Religion.
>Newdow grew up in the Bronx and in Teaneck, New Jersey, where his nominally Jewish family moved in 1960
dont do that, its the communists who dont want anyone to have connections with anykind of heritage. foolish atheists will also demand it like retards
however if they do that, you can expect civil war in america, not over this lawsuit, but over everything that you have over there, because these who demand shit keep demanding everyone bow down to their worldview and nobody should have heritage or anything of their own. literally communism
daily reminder that there is an islamic space warlord hidden on the dollar bill
The seperation of Church and State, while not in any Federal Document, was very much a concept in the minds of the Founding Fathers. It doesn't keep religion out of politics, though. It keeps politics out of religion.
To be honest I don't really like "In God We Trust" being on cash.
There are a lot of different religions in America. Some have no gods; some have multiple gods. It's culturally insensitive to have an endorsement of Monotheism on our cash.
That's jews. They are forbidden by their book from writing the word God. Most likely the guy who filed the suit is not an atheist as he claims, but rather a jew. Surprise, surprise.
>Throughout much of his lawsuit, the word appears as "G-d."
>Your thoughts on atheists, /pol/?
Jews aren't atheists. Nice try, JIDF.
As for the article itself, god references definitely need to be removed from government. There's no place for it. Even on the dollar bills, the "in god we trust" totally looks like it's tacked on as an afterthought.
If they don't believe in any religion, why do they car if it's on the money or not?
or is it a constant reminder to alot of them that they may be wrong
Quiet atheists are fine.
Outspoken atheists should be hung.
Religion has always been part of western civilization. If atheists can't accept that then they aren't entitled to civilized treatment.
>athiests faces when having no mention of God on the money is unconstitutional because believing there is no God is a religion
You don't need to remove all money with "in god we trust" on it. They only need to get that phrase removed from all newly minted money and eventually money with that phrase will be removed from circulation.
If an American is wrong, even about his own country, it is perfectly legitimate for a foreigner to correct him.
I realise it's somewhat redundant to cast that as a conditional, but hey, I'm trying not to be rude.
this has been litigated several times
SCOTUS already said "In God We Trust" is not secular. The rationale was that this phrase fostered nationalism and anti-commie feelings so its been upheld.
Name a timeline in USA's history since creation when they weren't separate.
Hint: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof
I'm an atheist and I don't give a shit. I don't think most agnostics/atheists do either. Only edge teenagers make their atheism known. (nice dubs by the way)
It's not atheists you fucking mongoloid. READ THE ARTICLE AND GET THE G-D HINT.
ITS THE KIKES.
jesus christ you christfags are retarded.
>Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion
there is no law respecting Christianity as our official religion so what exactly is the problem? it's just a couple of fucking words
yep. I don't understand why though, i mean we don't ask jews to put a phrase on their jew gold.
Fucking shill faggots censored my post.
American atheists are stupid, this is pointless and dumb. But I guess atheism+ people need some pathetic shit to fight against, just like feminists, because tackling the hard questions is racist.
see this, think he is a jew.
>Newdow grew up in the Bronx and in Teaneck, New Jersey, where his nominally Jewish family moved in 1960. He graduated from Teaneck High School.
The phrase "In God We Trust" is just meant to mean that the government acknowledges a higher source of moral authority than itself. Removing this text would rid us of yet another layer of cultural protection against government usurpation.
>i fail to see how having the word God on a piece of paper is 'respecting an establishment of religion'
would you be ok with "thug life" or "YOLO" on our money?
You're missing the point, which is that the Fed doesn't print money. That's the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (part of the Treasury Department).
You've fallen for one of the classic blunders - believing more than 10% of Americans know shit about their own country.
You're right, but you forgot that there is equality, so that one view cannot become better than the other. So if you have Bible classes in schools, you also will get Quran studies and other Fedora tipping classes.
how is believing there is no god a religion? Is there doctrine for that? Do they meet up and pray? What do they worship? What about people who have never heard of religion? Are they part of this religion?
I really don't care much about it, even though I am a relatively religious Catholic. I always thought it was a little innappropriate to have 'IN GOD WE TRUST" on the bill. I liked the latin motto better than the cold war religious one, sounded much cooler and more appropriate for the US.
I'm a christian and I'm fin with this, in God we trust was only added to currency and the pledge after the red scare. It wasn't always there, nor was this country founded as a Christian nation as some like to claim, that idea was also sold during and after the red scare. So the traditional argument to it is bullshit.
Give unto Caesar's what is Caesar's and quite frankly I don't give a fuck what's printed on a man's money only what is printed in his heart and mind.
That's why the whole arguments about God on money or in public schools or the war on Christmas are hollow bullshit coming from people who don't know what it means to be Christian because they are focused on the material world.
Sort of a stretch for atheists to claim discrimination but I agree that the word God has no place in official government shit. Despite the ambiguity in the word everyone knows it means the ephemeral concept of God from Abrahamic religion (discounting Allah.)
actually...the constitution makes it illegal for ANY privately owned organization to print our money. So its illegal on both counts. Thanks for playing.
In civilised societies, it's considered impolite to reply to someone who made a facetious comment in response to another facetious comment as though they have nothing more substantial to offer.
I should have expected better of you Canada. Perhaps you're Québécois.

Marxist kike shill detected
You guys will regret if you don't completely separate the church and state at every level whenever it comes up in court. UK didn't think it was a problem and now there are muslim preachers giving out Korans in there jails. If you don't think there is any harm in halving a prayer at schools just wait until muslims demand the same thing and anyone who opposes it is called Islamophobic.
/pol/'s aways right.
the U.S. Government, according to our Founding Fathers, alone have the right to print and regulate our money. Why? Because privately owned organizations are not liable to the Government in the same way that Government bodies are - which is why the Fed Reserve has never once been audited. Go educate yourself.
The Constitution grants authority to Congress to print and set the value of currency. Nowhere does it prohibit Congress from delegating that authority to another entity. You're not half as smart as you no doubt think you are.
theyre allowed to do it..illegally. the whole US government are criminals in this regard.
it does, however, prevent PRIVATELY OWNED organizations from printing our money. Try harder.
>Novus ordo seclorum

He has nodded assent to our plans
The pyramid is the insignia of the "insinuating brothers"
Who the fuck cares what the currency says on it when your sticking it into your favorite male strippers asshole.
It's still a dollar. Don't you have anything else to complain about?
no the fed almost got audited and it lacked enough support. all the legislative branch has to do is vote to do it
the legislative branch can rewrite the constitution and dissolve the judicial branch as well as set the budget and override the executive branch with a veto proof majority
try again, "fucko."
" It is considered an independent central bank because its monetary policy decisions do not have to be approved by the President or anyone else in the executive or legislative branches of government."
If mandated by a federal court, then yes it is.
The whole business of 12 step programs which advocate relinquishing one form of self-harm (addiction) and replacing it with another (religion) is quintessentially American, and entirely suspect.
>Five pointed star. Crescent moon.
Seems similar to islamic motifs. Or the communist star.
>having literally a mason symbol
>OH noo god is offensive!
God is all over our money and our government has been shit ever since the decision in the 50s
Separation of Church and State, now and forever.

>Gets interred in a replica of a babylonian ziggurat
Why did he do all this stuff as an atheist?
For example, I live in a liberal blue state and chick-filet-a is always the most crowded fast food restaurant in town. It's just average fast food yet people eat there to make a political statement and the news acts like America is a "diversity YES" country.
Try again "fucko."
"Although Federal Reserve purchases of Treasury securities do not involve printing money, the increase in the Federal Reserve's holdings of Treasury securities is matched by a corresponding increase in reserve balances held by the banking system. The banking system must hold the quantity of reserve balances that the Federal Reserve creates."
So basically..they print money. top kek.
I'm an atheist and this is just ridiculous. It's just money, and as long as it gets me the shit i wanna buy, then you can put "niggers tongue my anus" on the bills for all i care.
New shipment of dildoes incoming.
Meanwhile we are getting motherfucking animals. The entire peso bill series is getting revamped. Just announced today.
Fucking free market fundies.
No love for history.
Fucking moron. Now show me where the Constitution would prohibit the Fed from printing the money.
Newdow grew up in the Bronx and in Teaneck, New Jersey, where his nominally Jewish family moved in 1960. He graduated from Teaneck High School.

But you just said the Fed doesnt print money here: >>61121702
Which is it anon? Do they not print money, or are they justified in printing our money? Oh my..is this considered "trolling" on /pol/?
Dont make me kek.
protip: too late. pic related. its me keking at you.
I don't fucking know man. Militant atheists are the fucking worst. Hell, I'm an atheist myself as in a literal atheist, I don't give a shit what people do with their religions. "In God we trust" could be "Guide me to Nirvana" or "Black dicks tell lies" for all I care. It's just words on paper.
Can anti theists just call themselves something else? I don't wanna call myself agnostic or some dumb shit.
>and "In God We Trust" doesn't refer to any specific religion
Congratulations. You're what we of the socialist persuasion like to call a 'useful idiot'. You should feel very proud.
No, fucktard. You said they're doing it illegally. I proved you stupid, then asked what led you to being so stupid. Since you're an idiot you're clearly confused by all this so I'll let you slink on outta here.
Federal Reserve is a private bank, stupid fuck. It performs a vital service for the US government in accordance with it's charter for a 'small fee'.
Goddamn you shills are stupid. You have internet. Don't you even know it's Monopoly money yet?
They killed some, but most Muslims are useful to them as a means to an end. They worked with turkey to kill maximum Armenian Christians.
They hate Christians more than anything, so much so that in Israel they don't use the + or x marks because they're to similar to crosses. Also their Talmud goes on for hundreds of pages about the torment and hell Christ is in.
>I would say there is a deep religious hate, either because Christ condemned and excoriated the pharisees even then about their evil, or else they really believe he was the son of god, and that they worship the devil. Or maybe a mix of the two.
"Our country" has been shit ever since 1948.
FDR was utter shit who handed the people's gold to the Rothschilds.
Fort Knox is empty.

I don't even normally like stringing together symbolism. It's more them who enjoy it, and its easy to see a pattern.
