‘In God We Trust’ Causes County Stir

A spirited discussion embroiled the Whitman County (Colfax) Commissioners on Monday about whether to display the national motto, "In God We Trust," in their chambers at the courthouse. Earlier this month, the commissioners received a request to do so by In God We Trust-America, a volunteer organization in California that encourages elected officials to approve such displays. Their agenda had included a resolution to recognize the motto in their chambers. During their regular weekly workshop Monday morning, however, they decided to strike the item from the agenda after commissioners Dean Kinzer and Michael Largent couldn't agree on a course of action/Anthony Kuipers, Moscow-Pullman Daily News.

Question: If the saying, "In God we trust," is OK for our money, shouldn't it be OK for a county courthouse office?
