National Trend Catching on in Baldwin County

National Trend Catching on in Baldwin County

Posted: Updated:
Four words, "It has been our national motto since 1956. It's on our currency since 1864. It's in the Senate chambers, the House of Representatives," and it's popping up in council chambers all over Baldwin County. "It's what we believe," says Orange Beach mayor Tony Kennon. "Intelligence doesn't make you wiser. Wisdom comes from God and that's our belief."

For the last six months it's been prominently displayed in council chambers in orange beach. It is also above the heads of council members in Foley.

Gulf Shores is the latest city in Baldwin County to approve a resolution that would display "In God We Trust" somewhere in city hall. The resolution states that it would be in a public and prominent position.

"It's on our money it ought to be able to be here," says Sharon Ramirez who likes the display in Orange Beach.

Businessman Chip Begnaud agrees, "We're getting away from that and that's why our whole country is going down hill."

Four words that built a nation. Now being displayed more than ever on something other than a dollar bill.

"I think we still understand what our roots are and what our founding fathers believed and what made this country great," says Kennon.

Robertsdale, Loxley and Silverhill also display the national motto.
