"City vehicles in Chesapeake, Virginia, will soon be getting religion.
At a meeting on July 13, 2021, city councilors unanimously voted in favor of a
proposal that would see the official motto of the U.S., “In God We Trust,”
emblazoned on every city-owned car and truck, at an estimated cost to taxpayers
Meanwhile, the state of Mississippi is preparing to defend in court its
insistence that all citizens, unless they pay a fee for an alternative, must
display the same four-word phrase on their license plates. Gov. Tate Reeves
vowed last month to take the issue “all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court
should we have to.”
“In God We Trust” became the national motto 65 years ago this month. But over
the past few years a string of bills and city ordinances has sought to expand
its usage and presence. Such efforts include legislation requiring or
encouraging the motto be displayed in government buildings and schools, on
license plates and on police vehicles."
