We come in contact with “In God We Trust” everyday. 

Previously, I’ve discussed the National Motto, its use, and its display (you can see that article here). Nearly universally accepted, its proposed display in San Bernardino County seems to have re-ignited some of the debate.

Jacquie Sullivan, a Bakersfield City Councilwoman, is in charge of an organization that promotes the motto’s use and display. Over the past decade, In God We Trust, Inc, has enjoyed large success, with more than 70 localities adopting the language.

Over those years, few adversaries have organized. Even the ACLU stays out of the fight.

I’m excited to hear about the upcoming passage in San Bernardino.

The national motto “In God We Trust” has been finding its way into city council and board of supervisors chambers across the country in recent years.

The past four years in San Bernardino County the motto has found its way behind the dais in Chino Hills, Ontario, Highland, Adelanto, Barstow, Victorville and Chino.

On Tuesday, the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors will vote on a recommendation by Chairman Gary Ovitt to display the motto in the board’s chambers.
