Kentucky taxpayers are preparing to pay to put “In God We Trust” signs in their state capitol building.
Republican Albert Robinson has been pushing to have the signs put up since last year, and now 13 of them will be put up throughout the legislative building. Though liberals have expressed outrage about the signs, the majority of taxpayers in Kentucky say they are willing to pay the $2,811 total cost it will take to erect the signs.
“In the long run, taxpayers will not get stuck for their cost, even though the state will pay the bill now,” said Robinson, who is trying to raise the modest cost himself.
“That’s exactly what’s going to happen,” Robinson added, according to American Overlook. “I intend to raise the money when the next legislative session starts in January or will pay for it myself. I have deep convictions on this.”
Liberals are fighting tooth and nail to ensure that the signs won’t go up.
“Government should not favor one religion over another but we have seen challenges to similar situations not go far since it is the national motto,” said Michael Aldridge of the Kentucky branch of the American Civil Liberties Union.
“We just believe that government is supposed to represent everyone — the religious and non-religious,” added Rob Boston of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
Liberals can cry as much as they want to, but the patriotic citizens of Kentucky have made it clear that these signs are going up. SHARE if you agree with them!
