God’s here: look busy! 

Authored by Rep. Danny Morgan, House Concurrent Resolution 1024 would make “Oklahoma — In God We Trust!” the official state motto.

Morgan told The Christian Post that research and review of the Oklahoma Constitution revealed that
the state has no motto. As to the “Labor Omnia Vincit” (Labor Conquers
All) on the state seal, Morgan explained that was only in the
Constitution as a description of the seal.

Although the U.S. and Florida both use the phrase, The Christian Post reported that the exclamation point and the state name makes the new motto totally legal.

Morgan,
a Democrat who is former mayor of Prague — home of the National Shrine
of the Infant Jesus of Prague — said no church or religious group had
supported or endorsed the proposal.

Presumably, the measure has the endorsement of God. At least we trust that’s the case.
