Ask state Senate committee to vote against religious motto in S.C. schools

The South Carolina Committee on Education and Public Works is considering a bill tomorrow that would require public schools to display “In God We Trust” in every school across the state. We need your help to ensure that young, impressionable students aren’t subject to religious proselytizing.

SB 969 is an unvarnished attack on American secularism and civil liberties, imposing the theocratic vision of a powerful few on We, The People.

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 and dismantling the wall between religion and government. The motto “In God We Trust” is inaccurate and exclusionary — aimed at misguiding American schoolchildren into believing that our nation is a theocracy.

Please use our automated system to contact the members of the committee and ask that they reject this thinly veiled attempt to inject religion into our public schools. Feel free to use or adapt the talking point provided. The committee will consider this bill TOMORROW, so please take a moment to contact its members today.
