Wentzville–Proud of My Hometown

The City of Wentzville is coming under fire because of their display of our nation’s national motto in the new City Hall.

No controversy here. When will people learn. “In God We Trust” is on our money and displayed in our halls of state and federal government, the Chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives, for one. The sentiment is enshrined and echoed in America’s founding documents as well as in the constituting documents of every state in the Union, including Missouri, just look it up. Like most people, I do not want a church-run state nor a state-run church. In that sense, I do believe in separation of church and state, but I do not believe in the separation of God from government.

For the naysayers, I ask:

“Where do our inalienable rights come from?”
They come from God—so says the Declaration of Independence (not to mention the Bible). I certainly don’t want government dispensing my rights to me. Rights are inherent and God-given, not man-made. We better all agree with that, because the Rule of Law depends on it—no person is above it because no person devised it.

“Don’t people have a right to believe or not believe in God?”
Absolutely, and they still do. But most nonbelievers I have talked to are glad that others believe in the God of a value system and legal system based on the Ten Commandments. Any American that does not believe in the value of the Ten Commandments misses the point of what a civilized nation is all about. The “law of nature and the law of nature’s God” are hallmark to our responsibilities as well as our rights. Watch these short videos for a great explanation from a non-Christian, Dennis Prager, regarding the wide application of the Ten Commandments in American society. It is still the best moral code the world has ever seen.

For ourselves, our families, and our friends and neighbors, “In God We Trust” is the best idea for the preservation of our freedoms and the living of our lives.
