'In God We Trust' police chief tells off angry atheists

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.

lmclain said... do what? Put HIS national motto (which is the same one, by the way, if he REALLY is calling himself "American") on those cars?

If he wants to put the national motto "In God We Trust" on the vehicles like this Chief did?
