GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. -- You can find it flying on Florida's flag or on the bills and coins in your pocket. And now one man wants to see "In God We Trust" on the Clay County seal.
"It goes back to our forefathers. This was a religious country long before me.," said Lyndel Hale.
Hale is a former mayor and city commissioner of Keystone Heights and is the man behind the proposal. "We don't want to alienate anybody. You still have the freedom to choose what you want to believe, in your God," said Hale.
"In God We Trust" is already apart of the Clay County School Board and sheriff department's seal. And Tuesday the Clay County Commission will decide whether to add it to theirs.
"I think it's an excellent idea. We have it on our money, and people don't have a problem spending it," said mother, Rhonda Treen.
"We are not trying to inflict anything on anybody else, but if we believe we should be able to say we believe," said grandmother, Debbie Gilbert.
But not everyone is in favor. "Religion doesn't belong in politics. It should totally be two separate things," said Alyssa Barber.
Hale says " In God We Trust" shouldn't just be used in Clay and he also wants to see the change made in neighboring counties too.
"It should be on every government building in the country, on every school. God should be glorified from the highest mountain," said Hale.
"In God We Trust" became the national motto in 1956. Hale hopes it will become more meaningful for Clay County, too.
The Clay County Commission will take up the issue and vote on it Tuesday at 2:00 pm during their regular meeting.
