Ballwin (Missouri) Aldermen May Put Up “In God We Trust” Displays on City-Owned Buildings

The Ballwin Board of Aldermen in Missouri are considering putting up “In God We Trust” displays on city-owned buildings everywhere… and the Holy Infant Knights of Columbus have already pledged $750 to make that happen.

But it’s totally not religious. I don’t know where you’d even get that idea.

Asked for his view about potential legal problems if Ballwin placed the motto on its facilities, City Attorney Robert Jones said he knew of no cases in which use of the language has been successfully challenged. The courts have ruled the wording is OK because it has been used so often that it is not regarded as specifically religious or promoting any particular religion, Jones said.

See? It’s not religious because it’s been used so many times before, and it’s been used so many times before because it’s not religious. Makes perfect sense.

The Aldermen haven’t voted on this issue yet. I’m sure they’d love to hear from you, especially if you live in the area. You can find their email addresses right here. (As always, be respectful.) Feel free to leave your message to them in the comments so others have a template.
