Yesterday the nation heard a resounding proclamation, “In God We Trust!” because many of you joined the “In God We Trust” Social Media Shout Out!
#InGodWeTrust was promoted by groups and organizations with a combined fan base of 1.5 million. Over 2,000 people shared our Facebook posts alone.
Several Members of Congress participated. Speaker Boehner sent this out:
“On July 30, 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the law that made ‘In God We Trust’ the official motto of the United States of America. It also mandated that the phrase be printed on all U.S. currency, including paper. And in November 2011, the House passed H. Con. Res 13, a bipartisan bill that reaffirmed “In God We Trust” as our nation’s official motto.
This spring, Rep. Randy Forbes (R-VA) presented Speaker Boehner with a plaque (pictured above) to hang in his office in the Capitol. It’s a proud reminder of this important phrase that originated more than 150 years ago. Originally approved by Congress in 1864, the phrase comes from the Proverbs 3:5, ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart.’
On this important anniversary, the Speaker said:
‘I’m proud to commemorate and reaffirm the appropriateness of our national motto and I’m proud to have this plaque hanging in my office. ‘In God We Trust’ speaks to all of our citizens, and it’s not just a source of pride for us, it is a beacon of hope for the world.'” Read more
Thank you for helping us proclaim that America is one nation under God!
