Supreme Court Declines 'So Help Me God' Suit

Ad Feedback

The U.S. Supreme Court announced it won't hear an atheist's case challenging the inclusion of "So help me God" in the president's inaugural oath.

Atheist Michael Newdow, who believes the phrase is unconstitutional and infringes on his religious beliefs, had unsuccessfully sued to ban President Obama from using the expression in his 2009 presidential oath.
Despite the fact it's not required by the Constitution, many presidents have included the phrase in their presidential oaths.

Newdow has also sued, unsuccessfully, to strike the words "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance and "In God We Trust" from U.S. currency.
