House to Vote on Placing Trust in GOD, but Which One?
The United States House of Representatives will vote today to reaffirm “IN GOD WE TRUST” as the nation's motto. The bill to reaffirm the nation's motto may not pass the House because the vote today will require two-thirds of the members of the House to vote “yes.”
The bill's sponsor, Rep. J Randy Forbes, is a Republican from Virginia. He said in a statement, “As our nation faces challenging times, it is appropriate for Members of Congress and our nation – like our predecessors – to firmly declare our trust in God, believing that it will sustain us for generations to come.”
Forbes went on to say that this vote will “directly confront a disturbing trend of inaccuracies and omissions, misunderstandings of church and state, rogue court challenges, and efforts to remove God from the public domain by unelected bureaucrats.”
Forbes noted that in a 2010 speech in Indonesia that President Obama called the phrase “E Pluribus unum” the nation's motto. Some democrats have signed onto the bill, but others argued that it is “unnecessary.”
The only question that I have for those voting for and against this resolution is which god do you serve - for money seems to rule both your parties?
