South Dakota Public Schools To Add ’In God We Trust’ Signs

South Dakota Public Schools To Add ’In God We Trust’ Signs

South Dakota’s new state law has just went into effect, requiring public schools in all 149 districts to place signs depicting the national motto in a ’prominent location’ where students are most likely to see them. The sign can vary in shape and form as long as it is at least 12’ tall by 12’ wide and easily readable. The principal can determine the style and execution of the new sign.

I think it's fair. The US, was founded as a Christian nation. to deny the foundations of your origin, would be to remove the roots from a living tree.

The government has no business teaching kids about religion or morality. That’s the responsibility of the parents and the church, or the child if they become an adult and change their mind or disagree with what they were taught.

I'm not a Christian, infact I'm an atheist, but The US was founded as a Christian nation, as should respect the values that Christianity brings

School and religion should remain separate, as the state controls schools and the curriculum. Allowing religion in schools give the state control over what children are taught religiously, as opposed to the infinitely more capable church.

How bizarre in a country that is 71% of Christian faith....

This is no longer my opinion; my mind has been changed because I recognize this has been the US slogan for some time and doesn’t really push a specific religion. This saying is everywhere, including on the money we exchange so this doesn’t really seem to be a big deal to me anymore. Here’s the original comment: ((No matter the decay of our culture from lack of morality or religion, the government has absolutely no business imposing said religion. It’s one thing if it’s in a historical context, but this saying in public schools is clearly a religious push. Public schools should be a matter of education, and personal religious beliefs, no matter how beneficial, should not be imposed. This leads gateways to pushes of other religion in public school, such as Muslim religion, or rejecting children for different or no religious beliefs. We cannot ignore this ridiculous push of religion in public schools merely because it matches with the religion we subscribe to.))

God has been replaced by edonism, self-indulgence, depravity and immorality in modern times. No wonder suicide and mental illness runs like wildfire in this generation.

well a lot of it was based on freedom of religion as well, although Christianity was the predominant one, right? Also, God can mean different things to different religions as well.

Keep your stupid religion out of schools, you ridiculous, self-righteous pricks. You have religious, private schools, and that's all you're allowed. Don't try to lie and say the "God" could be Krishna or a rock: that's an obvious load when AA says it, and it wouldn't matter, anyway.

Everything is fine as long as one understands the fine line between education and indoctrination.

If you think this is ok, then think if they put “In Allah We Trust” on the walls of public schools. You wouldn’t be for that would you?

This is an interesting one. Since "In God We Trust" is the official National Motto (last time I checked) so displaying it on the walls is technically no different legally from saying the pledge of allegiance or displaying an American Flag. On the other hand I feel like this is South Dakota's way of picking a fight with both of the atheists that live in that state (obvious hyperbole).
