Praise the Pow’r that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto – “In God is our trust.”
—-Francis Scott Key, The Star Spangled Banner
The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that posting isolated religious texts and symbols in any public building is unconstitutional. The government and public schools primarily choose to remain neutral on the issue of religion, because advocating one specific religion in comparison to another would violate every American’s Constitutional right to freedom of religion.
