In God We Trust, West Michigan Congressman Justin Amasha is news again, this time to vote against a House resolution reaffirms that “In God We Trust” is the official slogan of the nation.

Not that the cascade of Republican city disagrees with the theme or affirmation, he is all for “In God We Trust”. But the second part of the short piece of legislation “, supports and promotes” the display of the motto on all public buildings schools, government facilities, etc.

And that’s too much for Amasha, an independent conservative who has excavated about his belief that government powers should be limited and has made a habit of publishing the reasons for his vote on his Facebook page.

“Seeing” In God We Trust “on public property is appropriate in certain circumstances,” he wrote. “There is no need to push for the phrase that all federal buildings, state and local.”

“The fear that unless” In God We Trust ‘is displayed throughout the government, Americans somehow lose their faith in God is a bad opinion of deep religious convictions that many citizens feel, “he said.” Trying to score political points with no unnecessary resolutions should be the priority of Congress. ”

He was one of the train did not get very few, however. The nonbinding resolution passed by a vote of 396 to 9 (with two members voting “present” and 26 not voting at all) on Tuesday. Amasha was one of nine, and the only House Republican to vote against the whole resolution.

Everyone else in the delegation of Michigan Republicans and Democrats alike to support.

A spokesman for the Washington office said it had received Amasha a handful of calls, but Amasha had his critics among the people responding to his post at Facebook. One wrote that she found it “shameful that our representative was the only Republican who refused” to support the legislation. Another said it looked like a vow to “win votes from the border politically correct, multicultural and whiners.”

Others, however, praised the vote. A person on Facebook, said: “Sorry, but with flags and praising Jesus is not going to feed a hungry family or recover jobs overseas.” Another said he had mixed feelings about the legislation itself explained to Amasha.
