Kentucky Legislature Hearing Rooms Now Have "In God We Trust" Signs

In Kentucky, state officials have hung eleven "In God We Trust" signs in committee rooms in the state Capitol building and Capitol annex.  According to AP, the signs-- paid for with private donations-- were authorized by legislation enacted earlier this year. Similar signs already hang in the House and Senate chambers.  Sen. Albert Robinson, sponsor of the legislation authorizing the signs, said: "This is America. I feel like this nation was and is established by God.  We need to show the same respect in the committee rooms that we show in the Senate and House chambers." The signs put up in the committee rooms are temporary ones, because the permanent ones would not be ready by the time the legislature reconvenes on Jan. 6.
