ART HOBSON: In God We Trust?

Motto isn’t true and reflects poor policy

A March 4 headline read "'In God We Trust' signs going up in schools." New Arkansas legislation requires public schools to display such posters whenever someone donates them. The American Legion of Bentonville, Hobby Lobby and other organizations have donated more than 1,100 posters to school districts in Bentonville, Pea Ridge, Gravette, Gentry, Siloam Springs and perhaps other Northwest Arkansas schools. Similar legislation passed recently in Florida and Mississippi, and bills have been introduced in Alabama, Arizona, Minnesota, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Tennessee.
