Because of this belief, we are on a mission to replace the divisive and discriminatory motto In God We Trust with the original – and rightful – United States motto: E Pluribus Unum; from many, one.
We strongly oppose the use of In God We Trust as the national motto, as it breeds division and promotes the belief that those without faith in a higher power cannot be patriots. In fact, the motto In God We Trust was first adopted during the Cold War to enshrine our differences with the Soviet Union. It is, by its very nature and intent, a motto meant to embody disunion and conflict.
E Pluribus Unum embodies the true American spirit of inclusiveness. From a group of colonies uniting against all odds to throw off imperial tyranny, to millions of hopeful immigrants sailing into New York harbor yearning to breathe free, the United States has always consisted of differing viewpoints, beliefs, motivations, and dreams. Though sometimes quarrelsome amongst one another, these differences have always served to strengthen American society. Our openness to all points of view has guided America throughout its history, making it the strongest, most prosperous nation in the history of the world. It has always been the Many who make up the One.
