Atheist Launches New Court Battle to Remove God From U.S. Currency

“In God We Trust” on U.S. currency violates “the constitutional rights” of the country’s atheist population, and must be removed, according to a new lawsuit.

“The ‘In G-d We Trust’ phrase has continued to be a tool used to perpetuate favoritism for (Christian) Monotheism,” the suit states, according to cleveland.com. “It has also continued to perpetuate anti-Atheistic bias.”

Attorney and outspoken atheist Michael Newdow filed the suit this week in Ohio. However, he already lost a suit in California in 2010 over the same currency issue. Newdow’s also lobbied to remove “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance.
