The "National Motto in the Classroom act".

A new law that will go into effect in August will require all state schools to display "In God We Trust" somewhere in clear view of students.


Which god?

RE: The "National Motto in the Classroom act".

No surprise that this is taking place in a "Suthun" state such as Tennessee. wink

Happily for those of us who subscribe to the relatively few requirements of the U.S. Constitution, such as its First Amendment, but are otherwise all right with states legislating crap that applies only to their citizens as long as it doesn't violate it, even some Tennesseeans objected--

"This is preaching a religious agenda," said Aleta Ledendecker, president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation of East Tennessee."If it were not in order to promote religion, they would have used the original US Motto which was E Pluribus Unum. 'Out of many, one.' By using "In God We Trust, they are really being quite divisive. Because it sends the very clear message that those who don't hold with the Christian faith do not live with the same standards as those who do."

I wish Ledendecker had included the Jewish and Muslim faiths, since they're also God-centered, but I'm happy with anyone who disagrees with religious busybodies.
