Kentucky lawmakers are close to passing a controversial bill (HB 46), which would require every public school to prominently display “In God We Trust” posters.
Mandating these posters unfairly excludes atheists, and religious coercion has no place in our public schools.
These Senators are holding a hearing on HB 46 TODAY, and your emails could make all the difference.
HB 46 will result in bullying and harassment of students with minority beliefs. According to a study on religion in America by the Pew Research Center, 22% of Kentucky residents are religiously unaffiliated. Younger Americans are even more likely to be nonreligious. Kentucky lawmakers should not stigmatize these students by promoting religious messages in school!
National motto display bills like HB 46 are being pushed by special interests as part of Project Blitz, an effort by Christian nationalists to rewrite American history so that it favors their agenda. These bills aim to undermine the separation of religion and government and spread a false narrative that America was founded as a Christian nation.
We cannot allow special interests to use our children to achieve their political goals.
