I believe in the separation of church and state, and so did the writers of the Constitution.
The people in Mississippi had no vote in the removal of our flag, but we will get to vote on our choice of a new flag, as long as it reads, “In God We Trust.”
I have always trusted in God. I’m having trouble trusting a state government that drops to its knees to be politically correct.
The removal of the flag without a vote is unconstitutional. Putting “In God We Trust” on a state flag is unconstitutional.
Our governor and representatives should read the Constitution. It protects the rights of the people. It does not bend to be politically correct, nor does it bow to the will of hatemongers and those who shout the loudest.
I respect my state and my flag, but I’m having trouble respecting our governing body.
