    In God We Trust is fine.

    Which God? Cthulu? Invisible Pink Unicorn? Flying Spaghetti Monster?

    My two problems is: 1)this is the type increments zealots like to make before making more dramatic steps 2) Required? See point #1.

    I don't disagree, however there's nothing here that forces any kind of requirenent on anyone.

    Yeah... except the bill itself.

    Bill Text: PA HB1728 | 2013-2014 | Regular Session | Introduced | LegiScan

    (a) Board of directors.--The board of directors of every
    school district in this Commonwealth shall display the motto "In
    God We Trust," which is declared in 36 U.S.C. 302 (relating to
    national motto) to be the national motto of the United States,
    in each school building.


    Form.--The display of the motto "In God We Trust" may

    I think they meant: In God We Lust. It seems that way sometimes.
