LINK Texas lawmaker: Those Arabic 'In God We Trust' posters don't count!

The Texas lawmaker who sponsored the bill requiring public schools to display donated “In God We Trust” posters has finally realized there are massive loopholes in the law, including one that could allow signs in Arabic, and he’s desperately trying to fix a problem of his own creation. It’s not the first time he hasn’t anticipated the obvious consequences of his bills.

A quick recap: Last year, Texas State Sen. Bryan Hughes proposed S.B. 797, which said public schools “must” display a durable poster or framed copy of the U.S. motto “in a conspicuous place”… as long as it was donated or purchased by outside groups. In other words, no taxpayer money would be used to do this. The posters were required to have the words “In God We Trust” on top, the U.S. flag underneath them (and centered), and a Texas flag elsewhere on the poster.

That was it. ...

Requirements to be a politician. No sense, common or otherwise.

"But Bryan Hughes is now trying to fix the problems he created.

In a letter to the state’s Commissioner of Education Mike Morath, Hughes elaborates on his intentions. He says that the wording of the law requires posters to say “In God We Trust” in English because that’s the way it’s written in the law itself. "

There was a joke when I was a kid that according to English speakers there are only two languages in the world
English and Foreign and that was only so because non English speakers are smelly, stupid and too lazy to learn English.

Typical that a racist joke from the 1960s is now a Texas State Senator

How about in Latin, Chinese, or Spanish. Would he be ok with that, my thinking is no.

These people are batshit crazy. I'm still upset by "In God We Trust" displayed on law enforcement vehicles. In going after the bad guys we are led to believe they all gather at the supposed scene, hold hands, and pray before getting to business.(Dog does this on TV) A sensible person knows this is insane! I propose that we have a dollar bill displayed instead and as big as the entire ass end of the vehicle and plainly you see the motto "In God We Trust" on that dollar bill.
