“What do you think BG? Let us know your comments on this situation for ‘Facebook Finds’!
‘Pennsylvania school districts could soon be required to post the national motto “In God We Trust” in all classrooms. What do you think?’ ”
“It should MY RIGHT as an American to HAVE it posted as much as it is for those that DON”T want it posted!!!! … if there are people who don’t want GOD in the school they have the same options to homeschool!” – Cathy Bibb
“Our tax $ fund schools, believe what you will and post what you want. We have the same right to have GOD in our schools.” – Allen Chandler
“If you want God in your schools, send them to private schools or homeschool them. There are plenty of options out there. … It sure is your right. It’s your right to post it anywhere you want, except for places that are funded by the government.” – Jason Albregts
