In God We Trust Lauds Congressman Walter B. Jones for His Efforts to Preserve Religious Heritage in America


America has always been a special country, founded by people of faith. The United States has always been one nation under God.  Ours is a unique land where the American people are united by a shared belief that their rights to life, liberty, property and happiness are granted by a Creator and can never be usurped by government.

That is why In God We Trust is highlighting the work of Congressman Walter B. Jones, of North Carolina, for his efforts to protect the rights of military chaplains in the U.S. armed forces. “Congressman Jones is a stalwart when it comes to protecting freedom of religion in this country,” states In God We Trust National Chairman Archbishop Council Nedd II. “I have met with Congressman Jones on this issue several times and am very appreciative of all of his hard work, as are the members and supporters of In God We Trust.”

Congressman Jones bill in the 113th Congress, H.R. 343, simply ensures military chaplains have the prerogative to close a prayer outside of a military service according to the dictates of the chaplain’s own conscience. In God We Trust currently has gathered over 172,000 signed petitions from Americans in all fifty states supporting H.R. 343.

“The people in North Carolina’s 3rd Congressional district should be proud to call Congressman Jones their elected official,” states Nedd. “Our military chaplains have one of the hardest jobs on earth, comforting young Americans with prayer before sending them into harm’s way. It can’t be quantified how important faith is in this situation.”

For his continued work to preserve religious heritage in America, as well as giving military chaplains the freedom to comfort our American heroes as they risk their lives for our freedom, In God We Trust and our entire membership applauds Congressman Walter B. Jones.
