“In God We Trust” Doesn’t Violate Separation of Church and State
March 18, 2010
Dear Joan Ann,
I’m very happy to celebrate with you another victory in the Courts of the United States. This time from the unlikely but important 9th Circuit in California. Most usually thought of as one of the most liberal courts in our Nation Judges from this Court voted 3-0 to uphold "In God We Trust" on coins and currency.
Judge Carlos Bea also affirmed that the Pledge of Allegiance with the words "Under God" does not violate the U.S. Constitution. The Judge stated, "The Pledge of Allegiance serves to unite our vast nation through the proud recitation of some of the ideals upon which our republic was founded."
We applaud these Judges and the men and women across the United States who stay informed, involved and active in standing up for freedom of faith and religion…the principles upon which America was envisioned, founded and shaped.
May God bless each of you dear partners and May God continue to bless the United States of America,
Dr. Stephen Lowell Swisher
