‘In God We Trust’ Signs Going Up in More Texas Schools
Hugo - A Turnaround Story
StevieRay Hansen: After his parents abandoned him to a life on the streets at a young age, Hugo spent some time at The 127 Faith Foundation. We could see it in his eyes. He had been broken into a thousand pieces. Unfortunately, poor decisions on his part landed him prison for two years. Today, he's back under our care, older, more mature, and striving for a second chance to make something of his life.
Please consider supporting Hugo as he embarks on this new journey of trusting in the Lord for his future.
James 1:27, Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. (NIV)
HNewsWire: We must keep up our prayers for our beloved nation and only cast our votes for candidates who have a strong faith in Creator God, a deep love for our people and our founding documents, and the courage to oppose any foreign nation that seeks to subjugate us, including foreign purchases of our rural land. Then and only then will we return to MAGA! ALL of our citizens, our liberties, and our values are supported by MAGA.
America was a God-fearing nation throughout World War 2 and the immediate aftermath, and our success as a country was a result of our devotion to God. America has gradually strayed away from God over the past few decades, elevating hedonism above morality. Adam and Eve were created by God, not Adam and Steve, and I am pleased that Texas has a senator who wants to reinstate religion in the classroom so that we can give thanks to God for all of our blessings.
Thanks to a statute that just went into effect requiring its exhibition in a conspicuous area in public schools and institutes of higher education in the Lone Star state, the motto "In God We Trust" is being exhibited in an increasing number of Texas schools.
Republican state senator from Texas Bryan Hughes co-authored Senate Bill 797, which was passed last year and mandates that schools display the slogan provided that the signs displaying it were funded by private donations and were free of charge to taxpayers.
Following an appearance for a Northwest Austin Republican Women's Club event earlier in the week, Hughes said in a message on Twitter on August 17 that "the national motto, In God We Reliance, emphasizes our common trust in a sovereign God."
A picture of one of the signs was posted by Hughes, who expressed his encouragement at the generosity of those who "came forward to contribute these framed prints to remind future generations of the national motto."
The national motto must be displayed in a "conspicuous area" in Texas public schools and higher education institutions, according to the law, and more signs with the phrase have been donated to school districts around the state.
The Carroll Independent School District (ISD) received many "In God We Trust" signs from Patriot Mobile, a Texas-based mobile provider, who said in a statement on social media that they're "glad to be a part of having our nation's motto hung in our public schools."
The business said, "Our aim is to fervently preserve our God-given, Constitutional rights and freedoms, and to always exalt God." In a later statement, the business said that it had given framed "In God We Trust" posters to "many other school districts in the Dallas-Fort Worth area" and that it would keep doing so until all of the schools in the region had them.
The business said, "We are pleased to be a part of bringing God back into our public schools!
In a tweet, Carroll ISD posted a picture of the donated signs. According to the Houston Chronicle, similar signs have appeared in the Austin and Houston regions.
The statute requiring the exhibition of the "In God We Trust" signage, however, is not welcomed by everyone.
The Southlake Anti-Racism Coalition's Anya Kushwaha told NBCDFW in an interview that the law is problematic because it muddles the distinction between church and state. "I feel like they have no choice but to put them up right now, but hopefully this will spark larger discussions about having more freedom of expression," Kushwaha told the outlet. "If they are allowed to put up signs like this, there should be no reasons that other students or people can't put up signs that have different messaging."
The Yellow Rose of Texas Republican Women recently posted on social media that they had donated a number of the signs to Houston area school districts. Despite some opposition, the placards are increasingly being seen in Texas schools.
In 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed a bill making "In God We Trust" the nation's official motto. This gave the phrase legal status.
