Please oppose Pennsylvania ‘In God We Trust’ bill

The Pennsylvania Legislature is considering a bill that would permit public schools in the state to display “In God We Trust” in “classrooms and other areas in public school buildings.” We need your help to ensure that young, impressionable students aren’t subject to religious proselytization.

HB 1602 is part of the nationwide legislative push, Project Blitz. Project Blitz seeks to inject state legislatures with a whole host of religious bills, imposing the theocratic version of a powerful few on We The People. It is an unvarnished attack on American secularism and civil liberties — those things we cherish most about our democracy, and now must tirelessly defend.

While politicians claim that these laws are intended to showcase the national motto or inspire patriotism, it is clear that their true purpose is to peddle religiosity to a captive audience. These laws are about advancing the Big Lie that the United States was “Founded on God” or Christianity, dismantling the wall of separation between religion and government. The motto In God We Trust is inaccurate, exclusionary and aimed at brainwashing American schoolchildren into believing that our nation is a theocracy.

This bill is currently in front of the House State Government Committee, which will vote on whether or not to advance it. Please contact the members of the committee and urge them to vote no on this unnecessary and divisive measure.

1. These people need to get a clue.

I'm sure that not every one who even believes in God trusts him. I know I wouldn't.

2. OMG...

If they pass it, I hope Governor Wolf will veto it. Our republican legislature is insane.

4. Yes I believe he would

It's not the sentiment of trusting in God, it's the way they're clobbering everyone over the head with it!

3. National motto

It really should be "E pluribus unum."

Didn't they make "In God we trust" the motto and add it to money during the communist witch hunts of the 50s?
