Thank you so much for the article you wrote on displaying our national motto, “In God We Trust.” We have been so blessed in our nation to have the religious liberties that we do. Because of religious persecution in Europe, our founding fathers in the First Amendment granted the American people freedom of religion and freedom of speech.
Over the last 50 years or so, we have had individuals and organizations who have tried to remove God and religious expression from public view. One recent example of this is the cheerleaders in East Texas who wanted to display banners with Bible verses written on them at local football games, and were told they could not do that. They stood their ground and protected their first amendment rights.
Every individual, from the youngest to the oldest, can take a stand just like those cheerleaders, by displaying our national motto, “In God We Trust.” We are free to display that in any governmental office, school, church, veteran group, military, office, home – anywhere.
As we do so, we are also honoring God and thanking Him for the goodness and mercy he has shown the American people over the years, time and time again.
I encourage everyone to join in displaying our national motto, “In God We Trust.” Let’s protect our national heritage for our children and grandchildren.
