    Louisiana requires "In God We Trust"

    Law requires Louisiana public schools to display '''in God we trust''' signs [Video]

    "New school year brings requirement that all public schools in Louisiana must display national motto; reaction and analysis from Fox News contributor Jonathan Morris."

    Now, this is very interesting. Because it's on the coins. So, how can you tell them they can't display this, and yet have it on federal money?

    Well, I agree it shouldn't be in coins, but I don't think they'll lose.

    Good luck to them but this has been an ongoing battle that has been lost by opponents of the "In God We Trust" label on currency and even labeling it on public buildings.

    Myself personally the label wasn't needed when the country came about and it isn't needed now except for those that wish to force a deity upon others. However, the label has survived despite opposition.

    Since similar lawsuits have failed I don't expect this one to go any differently.

    Yes it has. And currently the country has a lot of people who couldn't care less about the Constitution in positions of power.

    Well it shouldn't be surprising since we have opponents of a woman wanting to have decision making ability over her own body and usually they invoke a deity in their support.

    The real question is why is it important? We have churches and billboards on every corner.

    Re: Louisiana requires "In God We Trust"

    It's pretty straightforward. The motto was changed after World War 2 in response to the "godless commies". It should have never been allowed to be changed to "In God We Trust", but there's certainly no sign of it being changed again anytime soon - even more so now with our current Supreme Court.

    Well, the original point of the motto was as propaganda from our government. Undoubtedly, they cared little for whether it actually promoted Christianity, or religious freedom, but they just wanted something to make Americans scared of communists. And religious people are always frightened of those that don't believe as they do.

    Nowadays, it's very clearly used in cases like this as religious politicians attempting to force their religion on us as some retribution for what they see as a degradation of our nation, or some similar garbage.
