Bringing Back IN GOD WE TRUST

Four words caused quite a discussion as Kentucky lawmakers started advancing a bill to require public schools to display the national motto, “In God We Trust.” The measure cleared the House Education Committee, putting it on a path to reach the Republican-led House. The bill calls for the motto to be displayed prominently in public elementary and secondary Kentucky schools beginning in the 2019-20 school year. Its lead sponsor, Republican Rep. Brandon Reed, told committee members that the motto is ever-present in society and is prominently displayed in the Kentucky legislature. He says above our state seal in this room is our national motto, above the speaker’s chair in our House chamber is the national motto. … On our money that we spend every single day is our national motto.
