Change the official United States Motto from "In God We Trust" to "E Pluribus Unum". Out of many, we are one - Note for a discussion, "E Pluribus Unum? What Keeps the United States United"

E Pluribus Unum. Out of many, one. Out of the many unique people who all have different beliefs and different skin tones and come from different backgrounds, we are one. That is what makes our country what it is: a melting pot. And we can only stand as a solid nation if all these different people can stand together without discrimination, and I feel like this is a step in the right direction. It is time that we take a stand against the discriminators in our country and let them know that we will no longer tolerate their behavior that promotes an Us vs. Them mentality.

Our current motto is long outdated. "In God We Trust" presents the assumption that the whole country believes in a god, which, for starters, goes against the Establishment Clause.

E Pluribus Unum. Out of Many, One.


"In God We Trust" is the official motto of the United States. It was adopted as the nation's motto in 1956 as an alternative or replacement to the unofficial motto of E pluribus unum, which was adopted when the Great Seal of the United States was created and adopted in 1782.
