A big thank-you goes to Chairman William Hadley and members of the Stephenson County Board in Illinois, for voting to proudly display America’s National Motto, “In God We Trust,” on the Stephenson County Courthouse. Hadley spearheaded a resolution for reaffirming “In God We Trust” as the National Motto during a July, 2016 Board meeting.
Since then, Hadley has boldly stood his ground against anti-faith groups such as the Freedom From Religion Foundation who have threatened to file a misguided lawsuit. The majorit y of county residents are in full support of his actions, as are hundreds of government leaders and millions of citizens from around the nation.
The Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation also showed its support in a letter to Chairman Hadley that provided the names of several Congressional advisors, confirmed their actions are fully constitutional, and encouraged them to remain strong. Read and share
Chairman Hadley’s actions are in complete accordance with a 1956 law signed by President Eisenhower to officially name our National Motto, “In God We Trust,” a declaration later reaffirmed by the 112th Congress in 2011 with an overwhelming vote of 396/9. Numerous court rulings have strongly sustained the constitutionality of this Congressional action.
Today, tens of thousands of freedom-loving Americans also display our Motto in their homes, churches, and businesses. These simple, but powerful words are inscribed on our currency, the walls of the Capitol Visitor Center in Washington, D.C., in the offices of Members of Congress, in letters of gold behind the Speaker’s rostrum in the U.S. House of Representatives, in courthouses, public schools, government buildings, and many other prominent places.
In the face of growing threats to our religious freedom, we applaud the courage and resolve of leaders like Chairman Hadley. Thank you for your example.
