As the new school year begins, “In God We Trust” signs are springing up at schools across Texas under another state regulation that expects schools to show them in the event that they are given.
The law was known as Senate Bill 797 and it was passed by the Legislature and established by Gov. Greg Abbott last year. It says schools “must display in a conspicuous place in each building of the school or institution a durable poster or framed copy of the United States national motto,” as long as it is donated to the school.
In the Houston region, the Yellow Rose of Texas Republican Women gave the signs to various schools in Cy-Fair ISD. Furthermore, the Northwest Austin Republican Women’s Club gave the signs to nearby schools, which will support Sen. Bryan Hughes’s advancement on Tuesday.
“The national motto, In God We Trust, asserts our collective trust in a sovereign God,” the East Texas Republican composed on Twitter, recognizing himself as the creator of the bill. I’m urged to see gatherings … and numerous people approaching to give these outlined prints to help people in the future to remember the national saying.
Additionally, in Dallas-Fort Worth, “America’s only Christian conservative wireless provider,” Patriot Mobile, gave the signs to each ground in Southlake Carroll ISD.

Southlake has been the focal point of ongoing society battles over state-funded training in Texas, with profoundly advertised fights over basic race hypothesis, region variety arrangements, and how and whether the Holocaust can be legally shown under Texas regulation. The area is the subject of three government social liberties tests into supposed victimization understudies in light of their race, orientation, and nation of beginning.
Some are protesting the signs and the law behind them.
“I am bothered by all of it, but most upset by the language ‘requiring’ campuses to do this if it is free of cost,” said Erika De La Rosa, an educator with Houston ISD, the state’s biggest school region.“Our government should not be forcing campuses to do anything other than meet the needs of all of our state’s children.”
She noticed that Texas lingers behind numerous different states in training subsidizing.
The funny thing to me is that had it been something else other than anything to do with Jesus Christ, people like Erika De La Rosa would probably be happy to oblige. Be it astrology, demonic things, or the almighty covid requirements, people like her would bow easily, but thankfully this is at least paving a way for God to reenter schools – which judging by the current generation is desperately needed.
The bill didn’t confront much-coordinated resistance in the Legislature last year, other than the League of Women Voters of Texas and the left-inclining interfaith gathering Texas Impact, which enrolled their resistance when the bill was in council yet didn’t affirm against it.
The action eventually passed the state Senate collectively last year, then it passed the House by a vote of 106 to 35.
While this is great news for most, others have already had enough with the public school system and just took the leap of faith and put their kids in private schools. They are fed up with the school system and its government-aligned agenda indoctrinating LGB and sexual things on children as young as first grade.
