As children head back to school this fall, Tennesseans are reacting to a new law the state passed requiring the motto “In God We Trust” to be prominently displayed in every public school.

“I think it excludes people that don’t believe in the Christian God,” Mike Durham of Knoxville said, while others “fully support” the idea on social media, according to WBIR.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Tennessee state Senate passed the legislation unanimously, followed by 81 out of the 99 Tennessee House members, according to the Tennessean. Gov. Bill Haslam, a Republican, signed the bill into law in April.

“Our national motto is on our money. It’s on our license plates. It’s part of our national anthem,” the bill’s sponsor, state Rep. Susan Lynn, a Republicans, said on the House floor before the vote, according to USA Today. “Our national motto and founding documents are the cornerstone of freedom, and we should teach our children about these things.”

The motto must be located in a prominent place, such as a cafeteria, common area, or school entryway, and can be displayed in various ways, such as on a plaque or as student artwork.

  1. Founding fathers wanted separation of church and state.
    God is not mentioned in the constitution.
    God is not in the national anthem.
    “In God we trust” was not on the original money until Eisenhower added it.
    It is bigoted against anyone believing (or not believing) in the Christian god.
    Schools should be for education. Not religion. Unless you want to teach all religions.

  2. Fantastic, it’s about time this is happening. It should also be in every government building. Thank God for President Trump. Let’s continue making America great again and then keep it great.
