NC County To Put ‘In God We Trust’ In Courthouse
[su_right_ad]Because that’s what will fix those criminals.
The historic national proclamation will be put on the courthouse façade and in the entrance that faces out to the street. Though a religious phrase being placed on a government building is seen by many as controversial, Gaston County commissioner Joe Carpenter said he and his colleagues simply felt compelled to pay tribute to the founding fathers.
“Because of the many leaders before me, beginning with the founding fathers,” Carpenter said on Wednesday when asked why the phrase was being displayed on the building. “Their faith in God is what built the greatest nation on earth.
“’In God We Trust’ is our established motto,” he added. “And I think it is appropriate that we recognize that and hold it forward for people to know from whence it came.”
