Sheriff | Florida Sheriff Defends 'In God We Trust' Decal on Patrol Cars After Atheists Complain | Featured

Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF), an organization that promotes the separation of state and church and educates the public about nontheism, complained about decals found on a Florida county’s patrol cars. These decals show an American flag and the phrase “In God We Trust.”

The organization expresses to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office how the decals are “frightening and politically dubious.” In a statement by Sheriff Wayne Ivey, however, he says “they have a better chance of me waking up thin tomorrow morning than they do of me taking that motto off our cars! I personally believe that our country is at a tipping point, and if we, as strong patriotic Americans, don’t stand for the principals of our great nation, we are going to lose the America we all know and love!”

FFRF adds the request to remove “In God We Trust” from all office property, not just the vehicles, in order to “protect the conscience of citizens.” According to Jeremy Dys, First Liberty special counsel for litigation and communications, however, “it is absurd to think that a Florida sheriff would be acting ‘inappropriately’ for posting the official mottos of both the United States and the State of Florida. This attempt to scold a public servant for acknowledging one of the most cherished traditions of our country is shameful.”

Host Pete Hegseth also makes a point by questioning how the FFRF raises money since each dollar has the motto on it. “Last time I checked, it’s freedom of religion, not freedom from religion,” he adds.
