The truth is that having “In God We Trust” is not an attack on any group of people. The motto is a reflection of the foundation on which our nation was built. We feature the faces of famous presidents on our currency for the same reason. We want to encourage Americans to look back to those men and ideas that made our nation great. Understanding our country’s culture of faith in God is an important part of understanding our country’s success. This court case challenging the constitutionality of our nation’s currency will likely have the same result as all of the others. However, Americans should take this opportunity to learn more about our country’s religious heritage so that they can have a better understanding of what makes America the freest nation in the world.
