This is the final installment in the series (unfortunately, I posted them in the order I took the pictures, not in alphabetical order). I hope you’ve enjoyed them as much as I’ve enjoyed sharing them with you.

Let me know if you find putting them all under one tab at the top of the blog useful. I’d love for them to be shared, and that might make it easier.

God bless, and God bless these United States of America!

The Magnificent Fifty: Foundation of Faith (Ohio)

Columbus, Ohio (Artist: Susan Cassidy Wilhoit)

Ohio State Motto (1959): With God, all things are possible*

In 1997, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the motto. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 in 2000 that the motto violated the separation of church and state. in 2001, the full court in a 9-4 decision reversed the decision of Its own three-judge panel declaring that the motto does not violate the separation of church and state.

*based on Matthew 19:26

The Magnificent Fifty: Foundation of Faith (North Dakota)

Constitution Preamble (1889)

We, the people of North Dakota, grateful to Almighty God for the blessings of civil and religious liberty, do ordain and establish this constitution.


Have you been noticing how many of the state preambles have verbiage similar to this? So many have stated their gratefulness to “Almighty God” for their civil and religious liberties. How is it, then, that the Freedom From Religion Foundation can make the claim that faith and religion should not be referenced as part of the fabric of our founding?

We, the people of the State of North Carolina, grateful to Almighty God, the Sovereign Ruler of Nations, for our civil, political and religious liberties, and acknowledging our dependence upon Him for the continuance of those blessings.

The Magnificent Fifty: Foundation of Faith (New York)

Albany, New York (Artist: Susan Cassidy Wilhoit)

New York Constitution, Article I, Section 3 (1938)

The free exercise and enjoyment of religious profession and worship, without discrimination or preference, shall forever be allowed in this state to all humankind. 


You folk in New York should remind your lawmakers of this. I have a strong feeling it’s been forgotten or overlooked, but I’ll let you be the judge.

On that note, I think I’ll send a shout-out to my New Yorker friend at Beauty Beyond Bones 🙂
