Please resist N.M. “In God We Trust” bill

 

The New Mexico Legislature is fast-tracking a bill that would require all public buildings and license plates in the state to display “In God We Trust.” We need your help to ensure that New Mexico residents are not subjected to government-sponsored Christian proselytizing.

HB 115 is part of the nationwide legislative push, Project Blitz. Project Blitz seeks to inject state legislatures with a whole host of religious bills, imposing the theocratic version of a powerful few on We The People. It is an unvarnished attack on American secularism and civil liberties — those things we cherish most about our democracy, and now must tirelessly defend.

While politicians claim that these laws are intended to showcase the national motto or inspire patriotism, it is clear that their true purpose is to peddle religiosity to a captive audience. These laws are about advancing the Big Lie that the United States was “founded on God” or Christianity, dismantling the wall of separation between religion and government. The motto “In God We Trust” is inaccurate, exclusionary and aimed at brainwashing American schoolchildren into believing that our nation is a theocracy.

Please use our automated system to contact your representative and ask that they stop this bill in its tracks.
