Much Ado about Nothing

Conservatives, and especially religious conservatives, are ecstatic that public schools in Florida must now display the state motto “In God We Trust” in “a conspicuous place” due to a new state law. Evidently, Florida did not trust God before 2006, the first year that the phrase was declared to be the state motto. This is all much ado about nothing—just like the controversy over schools posting the Ten Commandments. A public school is a government school and therefore should not exist. Public schools indoctrinate children with environmentalism, militarism, socialism, and every other evil “ism” all the while failing to really teach children. They should be shut down. Posting “In God We Trust” and the Ten Commandments in every classroom and hallway and restroom can’t possibly right the wrongs that committed by public schools.
