In god we do not trust, neither do we believe

Separation of church and state? What’s that?

Florida House votes to force schools to display ‘In God We Trust’ a day after refusing to consider gun control

Next they’ll be forcing us to do so.

By the way? I don’t trust their “god” – not for a second. Their god is a hateful shit and a bully.

If the Florida House of Representatives has its way, all public schools in the Sunshine State will soon be required to post the words “In God We Trust” — the state’s motto — on all campuses where students and staff can see them.

The House voted on the legislation Wednesday — 97 to 10, with members standing and applauding the results —  after finding time to debate and approve a bill declaring pornography a “public health risk.”

Yet the House refused, 71 to 37,  to take up a bill this week to ban assault weapons, which had been supported by student survivors of the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, where a gunman killed 17 people. The students had gone to the state capital to push for gun control and were in the gallery when the gun legislation was raised. Some were dismayed by the legislators’ inaction.

It’s so profoundly insulting to all of us, even to themselves. No, we can’t do the thing that would actually make school shootings stop, but we can force you to bend the knee to a made-up magic spook in the sky. Say no no no to the real world fix, and then force a fantasy on everyone.

Rep. Kim Daniels (R), who runs a ministry, said it would help provide needed “light” in the state’s schools, according to the Tampa Bay Times. It quoted her as saying: “He is not a Republican or a Democrat. He is not black or white. He is the light, and our schools need light in them like never before.”

But “he” is, apparently, a he. Funny how he’s not these other polarities but oh yes indeedy he most certainly is a boy person.

Humans have been a mistake.
