Now those pesky separation of church and state folks are after our police. Law enforcement departments across the U.S. are banding together to place “In God We Trust” decals on patrol vehicles in response to recent violence against law enforcement officers. Adrian Garcia, police chief in Childress, Texas said, “I think with all the assaults happening on officers across the country. I’s time we get back to where we once were,” he said.
Here in Georgia the Freedom From Religion Foundation targeted a Burke County police officer after he put a decal reading “In God We Trust” on the back of his patrol car.
Those who oppose the “G word” on police cars are the same ones who fight to get the “G word” removed from anything government, local, state or federal. Atheists have expressed objections to its use, and have sought to have the religious reference removed from the currency, claiming that it violates the first amemdment.
President Eisenhower signed into law “In God we trust” as the official slogan of the United States in 1956. It’s been on U.S. coins since 1864 and U.S. currency since 1957.
Even if by some twist of fate the God-haters were able to get “In God We Trust” removed from police cars and money and government buildings, it wouldn’t stop me from trusting God. It really doesn’t matter to me what they try, or what they succeed in doing, It won’t change me. And it won’t change God or His plans.
You and I know the “G” Word will not only prevail. He will reign despite every effort to get in His way. I take comfort in that thought. And yes, in all things, in God I trust.
