Take Action: Tell Your Representative To Vote "No" on H. Con. Res. 13!

Dear Friends,

Yesterday, H. Con. Res 13, a resolution which reaffirms the official motto of the United States as “In God We Trust,” was passed in the House Judiciary Committee, and now faces general debate in the House. If passed on the House floor, the resolution would encourage the display of “In God We Trust” on public buildings, including government institutions and public schools.

“If religion and morality are taken out of the marketplace of ideas,” the resolution reads, “the very freedom on which the United States was founded cannot be secured.” The resolution goes on to state, “’As President Eisenhower said and President Ford later repeated, ‘Without God, there could be no American form of government, nor, an American way of life.’”

This resolution is an excuse to take aim at the country’s secular foundation and to push the social conservative agenda.

Please take a moment and tell your Representative to vote “no” on H. Con. Res 13 today!

 

Sincerely,

Roy Speckhardt

Executive Director
