TACOMA, Wash. – The Pierce County Council chambers will soon display the national motto “In God We Trust.”…report by breaking Christian News
The controversial resolution to make the Pierce County Council chambers the first public place in Washington to display “In God We Trust” was approved by the council Tuesday night.
Supported by Councilman Jim McCune, the resolution asks to place the “inspiring slogan” with words that are “a profound source of strength and guidance” prominently in the chambers.
“‘In God We Trust’ is universal,” McCune said after the 4-3 vote, “It’s a statement used all over the world. It’s not alienating anybody out.”
Tuesday’s council meeting featured a lively debate over the place of the motto in a government setting, given it’s reference to God.
Council members Connie Ladenburg and Rick Talbert introduced several late amendments they admitted were designed to showcase the “absurdity” of the discussion. They failed.
One late change that would include “E Pluribus Unum” (out of many, one) in the display was approved.
But Talbert took McCune to task for proposing this resolution in the first place.
“I believe this is a calculated effort on (McCune’s) part to impose his religious beliefs on the people on Pierce County,” said Talbert.
“It’s not going to be religious at all,” responded McCune after the hearing, “I think it was a good debate.”
When installed, Pierce County will become the first municipality in Washington to display the national motto.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
