More American Police and Fire Departments Are Putting “In God We Trust” On Patrol Cars

In God We Trust

Police cars in Cleveland, Texas, are the latest to receive a decal that reads: “In God We Trust.”

The stickers were provided by Good Promotions, a local business, and approved by the police department, Your Houston News reported. Cleveland ISD Police Chief Rex Evans says the message is empowering and patriotic.

“Katy Fire Department just put the motto on all its fire trucks. A lot of agencies are doing this these days,” Evans said. “The (attorney general) ruled that the motto of our nation is ‘In God We Trust’, so how could it be wrong?”

Despite the questions the decals raise about the separation of church and state, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued a legal opinion that the motto doesn’t violate the First Amendment, according to Constitution Daily.

“A court is likely to conclude that a law enforcement department’s display of the national motto, ‘In God We Trust,’ on its patrol vehicles is permissible under the Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution,” Paxton said in his ruling. [Of course it is permissible! It’s our national motto and on all US currency]

The Cleveland police force won’t be the last to embrace the decals. In the coming weeks, Liberty County Sheriff Bobby Rader will be putting the same slogan on his vehicles.

    Do any other countries in the Anglosphere do this?

      Do what, exactly?

    • In the Communist Republic of Canada mentioning anything about God would probably be punishable by jail. In fact, the mere act of putting decals on Police vehicles in recognition of our fallen troops in Afghanistan drove our Marxist masters insane and they got them removed.

      Not that mentioning “God” (much less recognizing our troops) is illegal — our Constitution and Charter recognize “the supremacy of God”. So it should be no problem putting a decal such as “Supremacy of God and Rule of Law” on Police cars. But in reality our Marxist masters treat the concept as if it were illegal. There is no rule of law in Canada, and no supremacy of God — Socialism is supreme and the Marxists make up their own rules in the service of fascist Socialism. The Supreme Court usually obeys the dictates of the Marxists irrespective of what the Canadian Legislature says.

      I seriously doubt it, since they have long moved on from the Magna Carta and just about every basic, traditional freedom. Glad to see it happen though in your country.

      If it’s good enough for our currency, it’s good enough for our official vehicles.

        Since King Turdeau II has said the shahada in a radical mosque, I wonder if he will mandate “in Allah we trust” in arabic as Canada’s new official motto to be inscribed on everything?

    That is offensive! That will offend atheists and the followers of Allah.
