Florida Governor Rick Scott has made some poor decisions as of late especially when it comes to Gun Control. But he passed an interesting bill in March that comes in to effect this week. Gov. Scott passed a bill that requires all schools to post a sign in a visible place that reads: “In God We Trust.”
“Gov. Rick Scott signed a bill back in March, requiring “each district school board” to display it inside “all of the schools of the district and in each building used by the district school board.”
“This motto is inscribed on the halls of this great capitol and inked on our currency, and it should be displayed so that our children will be exposed and educated on this great motto, which is a part of this country’s foundation,” Florida State Rep. Kimberly Daniels (D-Jacksonville) said as she pushed for the bill on the House Floor this year. “Something so great should not be hidden.”
“In God We Trust” has been Florida’s state motto since 2006, but the phrase has been on Florida’s state seal since the mid-1800s and has appeared on the state flag since 1900, according to the Florida Department of State.”
It used to be that God was a fixture in schools. And with an overwhelmingly Christian population, it’s a wonder why God was ever removed from schools. But this was likely the work of those small special interest groups that did in religion and morals. But aside from your atheists and non-religious people, who is really going to be offended? Judaism, Christians, and even the Muslim religion all believe in God. But you know the Atheist activist groups are going to be triggered and on the warpath after hearing this news.
But Florida is not alone in trying to put God back in schools, Alabama, Tennessee, and Arkansas have also thrown their hats in.
It’s about time Florida passed some sensible legislation.
