With so much talk about God being taken out of public places in order to be “politically correct,” Florida Legislature is making moves that are aiming to require all Florida school districts to prominently display “In God We Trust” in public schools. This groundbreaking bill is being pushed through legislation and lawmakers want it to be a lesson to children. Democratic Rep. Kimberly Daniels said in her presentation at the House PreK-12 Innovation Subcommittee meeting on Jan. 23 that she believes the motto should be displayed more conspicuously so that children will be more exposed to faith and educated “on this great motto which is a part of this country’s foundation.”
So far this bill has received unanimous approval, sending it to the House Education Committee for more discussion. “At least, that’s our motto,” Republican Rep. Ralph Massullo said. “At least, as far as I know, as of today, that’s an important thing for the country.” Republican Rep. Mel Ponder is also on board with this idea, saying: “I’ve seen time and time again … I think we too as a culture, as a nation, even other nations as well from one generation to the next, will forget the testimony, will forget the heritage, will forget the DNA of what the prior generation brought to the table.” Ponder said that he believes supporting the bill will allow Floridians to put “honor where honor is due and (to) celebrate a bedrock of nation of ‘in God We Trust.’”
And, should the bill pass, the Charlotte school district will comply, according to School Board Chairman Ian Vincent. “If the legislature directs us to do it,” said Vincent, “we will, as we do with all state laws.”
