    Public school students in Louisiana will see the motto “In God We Trust” when they return to class this year.

    A bill signed into law by Governor John Bel Edwards in May 2018 will require the state’s public schools to display the motto “in each building it uses and in each school under its jurisdiction” by the 2019-2020 school year.

    The law, first introduced in March 2018 as Senate Bill 224 by Democratic State Senator Regina Ashford Barrow, said that the way the motto was displayed would be “determined by each governing authority” but needed to be at least a paper sign.

    The law also included a requirement that students be educated about the U.S. flag and “patriotic customs” by fifth grade, as part of their social studies curriculum. Instruction about “In God We Trust” would be included with the patriotic customs.

    They should make crucifix cookies with a little, breaded Jesus nailed to it for everyone to eat at lunch.

      Good thought.

      I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

    Let them get it up in all schools and then keep asking “Which God?”

    What ever happened to “e pluribus unum”? Wasn’t that our nation’s motto?

      It used to be and should be again. We need to restore the motto and get rid of the McCarthy era God bother…poor kids.

    Patriotic customs should include US flag code which says dick about kneeling but forbids use of the flag, in part or in whole, as clothing or wearing an image of the flag on your clothes.  Coddling your junk in the stars and bars is fine, some would say fitting, but not the national flag.

    Why not change it to, “In Allah We Trust”?

    After all, the meaning is identical. “Allah” and “God” aren’t just similar. According to the Abrahamic tradition, they are the very same Guy.

    Yet, I can just imagine the colossal shitstorm such an inconsequential change would create.
