South Dakota to Require ‘In God We Trust’ Signs in All Public Schools Starting Fall Semester

They are taking a stand against godless globalist culture.

A South Dakota law, signed by Republican Governor Kristi Noem in March, goes into effect this month and will require every public school throughout the state to display an “In God We Trust” sign on their premises beginning in the fall semester.

“Some have plaques, others have it painted on the wall, maybe in a mural setting,” said Associated School Boards of South Dakota executive director Wade Pogany, in describing how the new rule may be implemented at various public schools.

Supporters believe this new law is a key part of a patriotic rival, as the American people unite to make their country great again in accordance with the natural law. The opponents, in particular the atheistic Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), want to banish the name of God from all public life.

“Our position is that it’s a terrible violation of freedom of conscience to inflict a godly message on a captive audience of school children,” FFRF co-president Annie Laurie Gaylor said. Her organization may file a lawsuit to stop the policy.

The FFRF explained their hostility toward religion, Christianity in particular, in a press release they issued about the new law.

“These laws are about advancing the Big Lie that the United States was “founded on God” or Christianity, thus dismantling the wall between religion and government. The motto “In God We Trust” is inaccurate, exclusionary, and aimed at brainwashing American schoolchildren into believing that our nation is a theocracy,” asserts the FFRF.

The infamous left-wing special interest group, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) also issued a press release through their South Dakota chapter against the legislation before it was signed into law.

“No student should feel pressured in public school to adopt certain religious beliefs. Parents, not school officials, are responsible for shaping their children’s religious education,” the South Dakota ACLU wrote.

“All students – those of any faith or those of none – should feel safe and welcome in our public schools. This bill sends a thinly veiled message that only students who believe in God are welcome,” they added.

The state is willing to take on the legal costs of anti-Christian groups like the FFRF and the ACLU should they frivilous lawsuits in an attempt to get the will of the people overturned by the courts.

“One of our concerns was that this would be contested. So we had asked the legislature to put a ‘hold harmless’ clause into the bill. The state would then defend the schools and pay the cost of the defense,” Pogany said.

“In God We Trust” has been printed on American money since 1864 when the motto first started to appear on coins. It was adopted as the official motto of the U.S. in 1956, made so after President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed it into law. The motto began appearing on paper money the following year.

Republican National Committee Files Lawsuit to Halt California’s Mail-in Ballot Election Drive

California is creating a questionable mail-in election system.

The Republican National Committee is filing a lawsuit to stop California’s drive to implement a mass mail-in ballot system, which the state’s Democratic governor claims is necessary in the light of the coronavirus epidemic.

Election integrity watchdogs are warning that the initiative, which will ensure that a mail-in ballot is sent to every single nominally eligible voter in California, will represent a ‘nightmare scenario’ for voter fraud.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniels slammed the state’s totally arbitrary decision to implement an untested and rushed mail-in election format, just months before a presidential election.

Democrats continue to use this pandemic as a ploy to implement their partisan election agenda, and Governor Newsom’s executive order is the latest direct assault on the integrity of our elections,” said the RNC chair. “Newsom’s illegal power grab is a recipe for disaster that would destroy the confidence Californians deserve to have in the security of their vote.

The lawsuit itself, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California, describes the arbitrary universal mail-in ballot drive as a violation of the constitution. “This brazen power grab was not authorized by state law and violates both the Elections Clause and Electors Clause of the U.S. Constitution.

California has never attempted to implement such a broad mail-in election format before, and the entirely new system is being totally imposed at the whim of Governor Newsom.
