It's the state motto.

QED
Good point, it should be removed from there as well.

I maybe the first church of cannabis should be the official religion of public schools?


If it's anything like my high-school, it already (unofficially) is...

Shhh don't let little things like truth or facts get in the way of electronic wang measurements..

Ill admit I did not know it was on the state seal since 1868, ultimately I don't care, I imagine the majority of kids don't care, but I expect a whole load of adults are going to be triggered and sue on behalf of the kids that so far have not shown an ounce of care.

It is Flori-Duh for crying out LOUD (COL) Folks down here eat paint from ChinaMa... Walmart™ I see all sorts of paint rings in 'Flori-Duh Tumbleweeds' Then a whole bunch of them buy 'Synthetic Bath Salts' and then start doing REAL Weird stuff...

It seemed it started going downhill when Our now Governor spent $75 M of "his won money" (That He pilfered out of Alabama) to get a job that pays $237k/year.. First bid to get His $$ back? He was making $$$ AFTER signing a Bill that had Welfare Recipients pay for their own drug tests, His personal business was selling the Drug Tests for $34 while Fl. hospitals averaged $150...

Did I type that We also have a slew of PRIVATE Jails/Prisons? I wonder if 'They' (Establishment) will start booking the scofflaws of these 1930 Laws into THEIR own jails???

If the weather wasn't great and it wasn't so inexpensive to exist I'd blow out of here....


***** It'll only get WORST as these same 'brain donors' just signed a Bill about opiates. So look for EVEN MORE arrests/convictions w/street bought junk and even more heroin ODs....

Separation of Church and State is clearly laid out in the constitution,



Where exactly is it laid out in the Constitution ? Which Article ?

The state should change it's motto!



They can. It's called voting and referendums.

Its part and parcel of the first amendment.

I really should not have to tell you that.

True. People should not have the freedom to choose what they want the state motto should be. The motto should be decided by an elite group of smart people in some Kommittee that can make all our decisions for us.

Now we actually have people here saying we should not be a representative republic and states and the people in them can't choose what they want their motto to be.

So everyone is against a state putting their state motto on buildings.


And people think I'm nuts.
I’m against the state putting in God we trust as their state motto.

you are purposefully conflating the argument. It doesn’t matter that the people voted for that to become the state motto, it should never have been one of the options. The only reason you are OK with it is that you identify as a Christian.

And people who don’t subscribe to any religion see the phrase in “God we trust”, On equal ground to “Allahu Akbar”

Not exactly... The First Amendment doesn't state a separation of Church and state, nor that State must be hostile towards religion. It states Congress cannot establish a religion, no impose one as a mandate from the State. It also may not interfere with the practice there of. While the Establishment Clause does prohibit Congress from preferring or elevating one religion over another, it does not prohibit the government's entry into the religious domain to make accommodations for religious observances and practices in order to achieve the purposes of the Free Exercise Clause.


As long as the Sign does not say " In BLANK'S God we Trust" there is no violation.

in such things.

No, I’m saying the first amendment literally prohibits that phrase from being affiliated with any state sponsorship. The only reason it got approved to be on our currency, is that our currency is not made by our government, which is another thing that goes against the Constitution.

Ill wager the vast majority of people have no idea what their state motto is, heck most probably cant name their representative in DC and a good portion will have no clue about who their governor is.

Yea, ok. Just as soon as they prove their version of some god actually exists.

Otherwise fire them all and prohibit them from filling any gov or state position for the rest of their lives.


Just pretend 'they' worship money. It's still printed on money, isn't it? Coincidence?


Anyways, they're just words. Let people cheerlead their words if they want, it never hurt you or me none.



Perhaps you don’t understand the need to separate church from state? Or the reasons why we do not pander to those who believe in Gods?


As I said, it's just words. No one forcing anyone to attend church or announce their beliefs.




YET.



This will only happen when the one world religion is FORCED on the world.

The First... prohibits a phrase...might want to rethink that statement.
