A Florida activist is raising money to send Texas schools “In God We Trust” signs — in Arabic.
Senate Bill 797, authored by Mineola Sen. Bryan Hughes, requires schools to display the posters in a “conspicuous place” if they are donated.
On Sunday, Chaz Stevens launched a GoFundMe campaign, “Messing with Texas,” to raise $10,000 for the posters with the motto in Arabic.
“We really could use your help in our quest to battle Texas’ latest law — ‘In God We Trust’ signs in public schools,” Stevens said in a tweet.
In response, Hughes quoted former President Ronald Reagan in a tweet: “Our national motto — ‘In God We Trust’ — was not chosen lightly.
