'In God We Trust'
Should It Be Displayed in Schools?

Dozens of grassroots organizers and concerned citizens joined in a rally in the state Capitol today to urge passage of legislation calling for the public display of the official national motto “In God We Trust.”

Rep. Kathy Rapp said the legislation calling for the public posting of the motto in school buildings throughout the Commonwealth serves as an educational aid to remind students about the underlying values held by the nation’s founders.

“In God We Trust” was officially adopted as the national motto in 1956, and appeared on US currency as early as 1864.
