Even though our nation’s motto is ‘In God We Trust,’ Tarrant County tax assessor and collector Ron Wright is being attacked for violating the made up constitutional provision of separating church and state for adding the phrase to his office’s envelopes and tax statements.

“I consider that a violation of the doctrine of separation of church and state. It is true that my coins and bills contain this phrase, but it has been on those for years and I suppose I have grown accustomed,” wrote Leslie Weid Fraser. “This (the return envelope) is something new and a lot closer to home. Those are my tax dollars, and I don’t want them funding a religious opinion.”
