The court in the US refused to remove the phrase "We believe in God" from dollars

The claim of the group of atheists is rejected.


The Court of the Eighth District in Minnesota rejected the complaint of the group of atheists, who demanded that the phrase In God We Trust (We Believe in God) be removed from banknotes and coins. The latter pointed out that the existence of this slogan contradicts the first amendment to the US Constitution, which guarantees freedom of religion, Reuters reported.

Judge Raymond Grunder did not agree with the plaintiffs. In his decision, he referred to the ruling of the Supreme Court of 2014. Then the plaintiff opposed the traditional reading of the prayer before the legislative assembly in Nebraska. The Supreme Court then dismissed the complaint, pointing to deeply rooted traditions.

Grunder pointed out that the phrase quoted on banknotes and coins corresponds to the ideas about the freedom of religion of past generations and does not contradict the legislation.
