In God We Trust - MIchael Newdow Wants It Removed

Michael Newdow, the atheist who worked for years trying to get the Pledge of Allegiance out of public schools, has now turned his attention to the common coin. He insists that the motto "In God We Trust" imprinted on the nation's currency violates the principle of the separation of church and state. You can read about this story and the history of how our motto appeared on the currency in "Atheists Challenges 'In God We Trust'" at the MSNBC site.

The U.S. Mint has already started moving I.G.W.T. onto the edge of the coin. Newdow should just save himself the legal expense.
