It gets worse

The state of Indiana gets very specific about the size and location of In God We Trust in their new bill.

” (1) The national motto described in subsection (a)(1) must be
at least four (4) inches in height by fifteen (15)inches in width
and include print large enough to fill the dimensions
established by this subdivision.”

Sadly this is not the worst part in this bill. It gets worse.

“SECTION3.IC20-30-6.1-3 ISADDEDTOTHEINDIANACODE
ASANEWSECTIONTOREADASFOLLOWS[EFFECTIVEJULY
1, 2019]: Sec. 3. The governing body of a school corporation may
require the teaching of various theories concerning the origin of
life, including creation science, within the school corporation”

And you might think that that was the worst, but wait there is more.

A public secondary school may award academic credit to a
student who attends religious instruction under this section if the
governing body of the school corporation adopts a policy that
allows the awarding of credit

You read that right.  Religious classes taught outside of school would be allowed for public school credit.
So Indiana is wanting to add religious phrases to school, allow religious concepts to be taught in science class, and let kids take religious classes of campus for credit.

Thank you Project Blitz for making all of this possible.
