Fox News co-host Steve Doocy on Friday suggested that Pennsylvania state lawmaker Babette Josephs (D) should not use U.S. currency that includes the words “In God We Trust” because she has said that she does not pray in public.
During a Pennsylvania House State Government Committee meeting on Wednesday, Josephs had declined to lead the Pledge of Allegiance because it included the words “under God.”
“Based on my First Amendment rights and based on the fact that I really think it’s a prayer,” she explained. “I don’t pray in public.”
Josephs said she had given up reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in 1954 and “I will not say it into the future unless they take those words out and make it less of a prayer.”
“I wonder if she refuses to use money because money has ‘In God We Trust’ on it?” Doocy wondered on Friday.
“Right, she just exchanges stuff,” co-host Brian Kilmeade giggled. “She uses the barter system.”
