It seems the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) is shopping for a new venue to try to take the National Motto, “In God We Trust,” to the Supreme Court, yet again, for another decision. SCOTUS has already ruled it to be Constitutional. But FFRF doesn’t agree. So they keep trying. Lately they’ve been on a letter-writing campaign to Sheriff’s departments across the nation advising them that they need to remove the Motto from their fleet of vehicles.

In recent months, police departments across at least eight states — including Illinois, Mississippi, Florida and North Carolina — have added “In God We Trust” to their official vehicles.

But despite both positive and negative reviews from civilians, the first real widespread effort to ban the phrase from police vehicles has been undertaken by the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF).

On Sheriff put it simply:

“To their request for taking the stickers off of our vehicles I replied ‘No, thanks’.

Other Sheriffs took to Twitter to respond:

Way to stick to your guns folks!

One has to wonder how the FFRF continue to spend U.S. dollars without going into convulsions with that National Motto so prominently displayed on our currency.
