(CHRISTIAN POST) – A new Texas law that requires all public schools statewide to display the national motto “In God We Trust” is facing a challenge over its rejection of signs with the phrase written in Arabic and one with a rainbow background.
In early August, the Carroll Independent School District, located in Southlake about 15 miles west of Dallas, received several signs with the national motto from Patriot Mobile, a local Christian-based wireless provider. Patriot Mobile has been linked to an effort to elect more conservatives to school board seats in Texas.
After criticizing the donations as “blatant intrusion of religion in what should be a secular public institution,” the Southlake Anti-Racism Coalition (SARC), a self-described “coalition of current and former Carroll students demanding systemic, anti-racist change,” designed a number of alternative versions of the motto to be displayed.
