Perhaps the better question is: Why was this allowed as a state motto in the first place? What about separation of church and state in that instance?!

I wonder what the justification was at the time it was passed.

What a crock of shit, pardon my french. Talk about stupid loopholes that violate the spirit of the law. It shouldn't even be on our money. Just like there shouldn't be money changers in the temple, there shouldn't be god on money. There's a reason the two remain separate. Otherwise you're just exploiting people's morality for profit, which is one of the more evil things a person can do.

Maybe the loophole/justification originally was it stands for Gold, Oil, and Drugs in the state motto lol
