Texas public schools required to display “In God We Trust” posters if they are donated

Note that because the Texas anti-abortion bounty laws were not struck by the SCOTUS even though they skirt the laws to let the public overturn private civil rights of people doing legal acts that a small minority doesn’t like, they are now doing the same thing to force more religious views on the public.    Several states that tried to implement these laws led to schools posting small or stylized posters / signs that explained when the motto was added as the national motto and added other religions.   This law will stop that.   The law is intended to make sure the donated posters / signs will be from highly religious organizations to push the Christian god.   That is the second point I want emphasize.   This is about pushing the Christian god on the public including those who have different religions or no religious faith at all.   The law doesn’t say in Allah we trust.   It doesn’t say in multiple gods we trust.  What about the atheist families, doesn’t this interfere with the parental rights pushed so hard by this same small minority to ban books and discussion of LGBTQ+ subjects in schools / libraries.    Parents rights seem only to apply to right wing maga Christians, not any other parents.   Hugs

The law passed last year says schools must display the national motto in a “conspicuous place” but only if the poster is “donated” or “purchased by private donations.”
