The Republican-led House will consider this week a resolution that would reaffirm "In God We Trust" as the official motto of the United States, according to the Los Angeles Times. The measure from Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.) would also encourage the public display of the motto in all public buildings and public schools. "If religion and morality are taken out of the marketplace of ideas, the very freedom on which the United States was founded cannot be secure," the resolution reads. It is expected to be heard on Tuesday, one of several social values issues to be considered this week.
