Project Blitz has made its way into North Carolina

North Carolina is not immune to Project Blitz either.  A new bill introduced into the House is yet another attempt to make public schools Christian indoctrination centers.

House Bill 965 would require local boards of education to adopt policies to:

  • Require the display of the United States and North Carolina flags in each classroom, when available
  • Require the display of the , “,” and the State motto, “To Be Rather Than to Seem,” in at least one prominent location of each school, such as an entry way, cafeteria, or other common area
  • Require that recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance be scheduled on a daily basis
  • Provide age-appropriate instruction on the meaning and historical origins of the flag and the Pledge of Allegiance


House Bill 965 was sponsored by four Republican members of the House of Representatives — Bert Jones of Rockingham County, Linda Johnson of Cabarrus County, Dean Arp of Union County and Phil Shepherd of Onslow County.


Now is the time to write the NC House and make your voice heard. Feel free to use our form letter from this post.
