They are taking a stand against godless globalist culture.

A South Dakota law, signed by Republican Governor Kristi Noem in March, goes into effect this month and will require every public school throughout the state to display an “In God We Trust” sign on their premises beginning in the fall semester.
“Some have plaques, others have it painted on the wall, maybe in a mural setting,” said Associated School Boards of South Dakota executive director Wade Pogany, in describing how the new rule may be implemented at various public schools.
Supporters believe this new law is a key part of a patriotic rival, as the American people unite to make their country great again in accordance with the natural law. The opponents, in particular the atheistic Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), want to banish the name of God from all public life.
“Our position is that it’s a terrible violation of freedom of conscience to inflict a godly message on a captive audience of school children,” FFRF co-president Annie Laurie Gaylor said. Her organization may file a lawsuit to stop the policy.
The FFRF explained their hostility toward religion, Christianity in particular, in a press release they issued about the new law.
“These laws are about advancing the Big Lie that the United States was “founded on God” or Christianity, thus dismantling the wall between religion and government. The motto “In God We Trust” is inaccurate, exclusionary, and aimed at brainwashing American schoolchildren into believing that our nation is a theocracy,” asserts the FFRF.
The infamous left-wing special interest group, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) also issued a press release through their South Dakota chapter against the legislation before it was signed into law.
“No student should feel pressured in public school to adopt certain religious beliefs. Parents, not school officials, are responsible for shaping their children’s religious education,” the South Dakota ACLU wrote.
