(Newser) – Police patrol cars in Childress, Texas, say "In God we trust" on the back, and recently, the police department got a letter from the Freedom From Religion Foundation "demanding" the words be removed, Chief Adrian Garcia wrote on Facebook yesterday, per KETK. He posted a picture of the letter he sent in response: "After carefully reading your letter I must deny your request in the removal of our Nations motto from our patrol units, and ask that you and the Freedom From Religion Foundation go fly a kite." The post has been shared more than 87,000 times. (Read more Facebook stories.)
