Hi! I'm in Orlando. If anyone wants to hang out send me a message. :)

Hello,

I am posting this message from Mike Newdow, who is seeking plaintiffs in a lawsuit to remove "In God We Trust" from our currency.

But before I do (see below), here's two more recent comments that relate to Florida Atheists:   "The two circuits that don't have a full complement of plaintiffs are the First (Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Puerto Rico) and the Eleventh (Alabama, Florida and Georgia). Thus, if any of you know similarly-minded people in those locations, please forward this email or otherwise let them know about this litigation and ask them to contact us." 

And:  "Additionally, even in some of the circuits where we have enough plaintiffs, we have not yet found two organizations who wish to join, or two families with children. This latter group - family with children - may be especially important, since the Supreme Court has often indicated that it really intends to uphold the Constitution when minors are involved. As you may know, the identities of any families with children will be kept 'under seal' during the litigation in order to ensure every child's safety."

         Thanks for any help in this effort.

                       Julie Woodward

His letter:

There have now been three Supreme Court cases dealing with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) as it pertains to federal laws. A review of the opinions show that RFRA was strongly supported by 8 of 8 justices in Gonzales v. O Centro Espirita  (2005), by 9 of 9 justices in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby  (2014) and by 9 of 9 justices in Holt v Hobbs  (2015). Thus, the time is ripe for Atheists to challenge being essentially forced to bear the message, "In God We Trust" – in violation of their religious beliefs - as the price to pay for simply choosing to carry the nation's currency in their pockets.

In fact, in the seven federal circuits where "In God We Trust" has yet to be litigated, challenges are now being organized to do just that. If you could use your voice to notify your followers of this fact, it would be greatly appreciated. Individuals (or organizations) who wish to serve as plaintiffs and who are from those seven circuits (i.e., who are from Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia or Wisconsin) should email their contact information – including city and state of residence - to NoMoreIGWT@gmail.com as soon as possible.

Because the Supreme Court has indicated that it is more concerned about constitutional guarantees when children are involved, those who wish to protect their children from the government’s religious transgressions are especially encouraged to write. Please be assured that we will move for a court orders to keep the names of families with children under seal. (To date, those motions have always been granted, and – as far as I know – the families’ names have always remained undisclosed.)

            Thank you.

                            Mike Newdow

Hey all! I just moved to the Ft. Walton Beach area recently. Any panhandlers here?

Cheryl Feather,

I live on the border of Lake City and Branford. Moved here in 2002. It is amazing how much it has changed. There are of course quite a few religious die hards here.
