In God We Trust , The Battle Begins

Michael Newdow, favorite godless son of the ACLU, is making trouble again. He spoke to them on Saturday, this from the ACLU Oklahoma website:

The ACLU of Oklahoma Foundation will host its annual Bill of Rights Celebration on Saturday, November 12 at the Clarion Meridian Convention Center, 737 S. Meridian Avenue in Oklahoma City. This year’s keynote speaker will be Michael Newdow, an emergency room physician with a law degree who objected to the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance and took a case against their inclusion in the Pledge to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Then, on Sunday, Newdow announced that he planned to file a federal lawsuit this week asking for the removal of the national motto, "In God We Trust," from U.S. coins and dollar bills. He claims it's an unconstitutional endorsement of religion and "excludes people who don't believe in God."

Newdow says his opponents "want to get their religious views in our government".
How, may I ask is that any different than what he is doing? He is forcing his view of religion on a majority that has a very different opinion. This country has religious roots and the majority of Americans have no problem recognizing them. Once again, tyranny by the minority is on the march.
