I had no idea the Salvation Army was supported in its discrimination by government funds.


Want to get even with the Salvation Army
for discrimination in Jesus' name?

Has anyone ever objected to the declaration of Christian faith on dollar bills?

Looks like someone tried as recently as 2011
For the second time, a lawsuit brought by Michael Newdow has made its way to the Supreme Court… only to be dismissed.
Newdow famously tried to remove “Under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance in 2002, but the Supreme Court said in 2007 that he “lacking standing” to bring the case to them and dismissed it.
More recently, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled against him in his attempt to get “In God We Trust” off the currency, saying that “the phrase is ceremonial and patriotic and ‘has nothing whatsoever to do with the establishment of religion.’”… so Newdow appealed his case to the Supreme Court.
Yesterday, [March , 2011] the Court refused to hear his case, effectively putting an end to this attempt at righting a wrong.
