11/21/11: US House Endorses “In God We Trust”

The US House of Representatives has approved a resolution reaffirming “In God We Trust” as our country’s national motto. The resolution also encourages the public display of the motto in all public buildings, public schools, and other government institutions.

Congressman Randy Forbes of Virginia says the action was needed to “confront a cloud of confusion” concerning our nation’s spiritual heritage calling the motto ” a bedrock upon which our nation is built.”

Forbes deplores what he calls “a disturbing trend of inaccuracies” concerning the national motto, and continuing efforts “to remove God from the public domain by unelected bureaucrats” and points to speeches given by President Barack Obama in which he asserted that the national motto is “E Pluribus Unum.”
