'In God We Trust' Bill Set for Full House Vote

Ad Feedback

A resolution re-affirming "In God We Trust" as the national motto has been approved by the House Judiciary Committee and is now headed for a full House vote.

Rep. Randy Forbes, R-Va., and two dozen other members are sponsoring the resolution.

The bill encourages public display of "In God We Trust" in all public buildings, schools, and other government institutions.

"We will give inspiration that our people across the country need," Forbes said.

Supporting lawmakers said the measure is in response to several attempts to strip God from America's heritage. In one recent example, the national motto was omitted from the halls of the new U.S. Capitol Visitor Center.

Forbes said the Committee's support sends a message that "In God We Trust" is a "bedrock upon which our nation is built."

Opponents of the legislation feel the bill violates the constitutional clause that, "Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion."
