While simultaneously crying like a bunch of babies when their religious freedoms are violated. Even when they aren't really even being violated. Mixing their faith all up in the government runs contrary to what's in the bible in the first place. Which means, they can't even practice their own faith according to their own beliefs. Yet, they expect others, who aren't even of their faith, to better Christian's than they are.
    Still not getting an answer. Is it a separation of Church and State issue for a public school to display America’s Motto?

    Why do we HAVE to do this? Not everyone believes in god so wouldn't this be a sin? If we lie to god, it violates the ten commandments.

    THOU SHALT NOT dude!

    Who cares? What's the point? Do we REALLY all trust in God? Is it a necessary part of a good education?

    Let's hang another sign that says "We don't diddle kids" of course, everyone knows that Christians NEVER do that.

    If you care about these kids education you wouldn't bring turmoil to their school day. Leave the religious indoctrination to the church and other religions under their parent's supervision. If you care about stirring up shit and using these children for political pawns, go ahead and exploit them.

    I'm just trying to figure out what practical application this motto has for kids. Because it sounds more like radical Christian activists are just using it to piss on their territory.

    I think replacing the motto with "God, HA! So there!" emblazoned over a smug faced emoji would serve the exact same purpose.
    Probably the same application the Motto teaches the citizens.

    It's not "America's motto."

    Not a motto, just meaningless jingoism.
