State legislators are proposing bills that would require the words "In God We Trust" to be displayed in public schools. These bills aren't about the national motto; they are intended to encourage children to believe in God.
No one should make the mistake of assuming that proposals like this are just jokes. They’re introduced to make a point, and they send a real message of harm to an entire segment of our population. They openly ridicule and mock people for seeking something that most folks want – a loving relationship with a partner that is legally recognized by the government.
