“In God we trust“ motto under protest in Brevard Florida Login/Join

A group called “Freedom from Religion” is protesting those words on Brevard police cruisers.

“In God we Trust” is the Florida state motto as well as US currency.

The Sheriff has said he will fight any effort to remove the motto.

Good for that sheriff. The fascist movement is aiming at Christianity as much as it is aiming against conservatism.

Our sheriff here in Hendry county Florida let the deputies decide if they wanted In God We Trust on their cars. Most of them did.

There is an outright attack on Christianity in this country if not the entire world. If someone suggested “In Allahs Name”, or “For the Love of Gaia” leftists wouldn’t care one way or another.

If a democrat proposed religious cleansing of christians by outlawing its practice or mention no doubt some in congress would support it.

Coming from an agnostic, the Freedom From Religion foundation can go fuck itself.

Isn’t this the group that nut-job Reagan is tied to?



"If you’re a leader, you lead the way. Not just on the easy ones; you take the tough ones too…” – MAJ Richard D. Winters (1918-2011), E Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24

Crosses and Nativity scenes (creches), for example. And I'm not religious or even particularly spiritual.

It's good to see Sheriffs like Sheriff Ivey and Sheriff Grady Judd over in Polk County. No nonsense men that know what time it is and are willing to do the hard work that needs to be done to make their respective counties as safe as they possibly can for the people and not bowing down to the misfits in society. Has me toying with the idea of moving down to Florida.

I'll just mention the 1st amendment, and leave it at that.

Oh, wait, I forgot to mention the very latest amendment - yet to go through Congress, though.

It's the one that basically states that 'You have a right to feel offended, but it falls short of forcing any other person to change their way of life or force them to act in a conformal manner in response to your feelings'.

One of the all time dumbest comments I've ever read. And this moron attorney is supposedly educated.

Sheriff Ivey is no Grady Judd, but I think he wants to be. Congrats to him for making the right decision in this instance.

Another indicator of “snowflakiness”

After re-reading this thread, this comment really bothers me. Is this the sheriff? Sheriff Stephen Whidden

What kinda chicken shit call is that? He runs the department, not the rank and file. As such, it is 'his' decision to make. Pawning it off on the deputies was a real cop out move.

Makes sense. Trump said that in a recent rally.

Anything he says is bad so...

Some broke dick NPC's reacted to Trump's temerity
to invoke God and just can't help themselves.

So...

IN GOD WE TRUST

Deal with it.

Coming from an atheist, there are soooo many more productive things these folks could be doing with their time.

Maybe like pursuing self-immolation for the cause.
