(RNS) — A Florida legislative subcommittee has unanimously approved a bill that calls for the state’s motto, “In God We Trust,” to be placed in every public school.

The bill, which calls for each district school board to adopt rules about displaying the motto “in a conspicuous place,” was co-sponsored by state Rep. Kimberly Daniels, a Democrat and a minister affiliated with churches in Jacksonville and Fort Lauderdale.

“This motto is inscribed on the walls of this great capital and inked in our currency and it should be displayed so that our children will be exposed and educated on this great motto, which is a part of this country’s foundation,” said Daniels in brief remarks Tuesday (Jan. 23) before the panel.

    Have you seen a wisdom is written in Islamic currancy
    “ IN GOD WE TRUST”.

    “This motto is inscribed on the walls of this great capital and inked in USA currency and it should be displayed so that our children will be exposed and educated on this great motto, which is a part of this country’s foundation,”

    TO THOSE WHO HAS A NEGATIVE THINKING OR HATE USA. Let me tell you that Motto is written in Al Quran, Islamic teaching:
    1. Surely, Allah loves those who place their trust in Him. (QS 3;159)

    2. If ye love Allah, follow me; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (31)

    No wonder if God bless America and It’s people, because people place trust on God alone. In return God love America and American currency has become international’s currency.

    That is way Allah blesses America and its people with peace, harmony and prosperity.

    America is peaceful home for all religion, non religion, or all human that God created.
    America is a home of knowledge.
    America is a generous country in the world.
    America is friendly and lovely people.
    America is a religious country .
    All people, Christian, Jewish, Muslim Sunni, Muslim Shia, Hindu and others say:
    “GOD BLESS AMERICA”

    Hopefully, these true fact can change your mind to those who hate USA. Amin

    All our ❤️
