A North Texas police chief has a message for angry atheists who are upset over his department’s “In God We Trust” patrol vehicles: “Go fly a kite.”
Childress Police Chief Adrian Garcia began putting “In God We Trust” decals on vehicles Sept. 2. The decision infuriated Freedom From Religion Foundation Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor, who wrote a letter requesting the motto be removed from the department’s vehicles.
“After carefully reading your letter, I must deny your request in the removal of our nations [sic] motto from our patrol units, and ask that you and the Freedom From Religion Foundation go fly a kite,” Garcia responded on Monday, KCBD-11 reported. He shared a screenshot of his reply on the Childress Police Department’s Facebook page.
