Would sound better if it read
" in Spock we trust "
I do! For 35+ years I asked God to bring me home to my family at the end of shift. I never asked to come home safe. Over the years I survived two explosions, getting shot, hit by a car, set on fire five times, and stabbed more than more than once. I have over 300 scars directly attributed to my career. Believe what you want, me personally I don't believe in church, I arrested too many priests, minister, preachers, bishops, and elders, but I personally believe in God. With everyone wanting to take the name of God off everything, I'm afraid that someday one of my great grandkids will ask ,"God, who the heck is that?"
This question caused me a minor yawn at first; but since I tend to give all questions the benefit of the doubt, I was rewarded by finding the following on Wikipedia:
The motto was first challenged in Aronow v. United States in 1970, but the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled: "It is quite obvious that the national motto and the slogan on coinage and currency 'In God We Trust' has nothing whatsoever to do with the establishment of religion. Its use is of patriotic or ceremonial character and bears no true resemblance to a governmental sponsorship of a religious exercise." The decision was cited in Elk Grove Unified School District v. Newdow, a 2004 case on the Pledge of Allegiance. These acts of "ceremonial deism" are "protected from Establishment Clause scrutiny chiefly because they have lost through rote repetition any significant religious content." In Zorach v. Clauson (1952), the Supreme Court also held that the nation's "institutions presuppose a Supreme Being" and that government recognition of God does not constitute the establishment of a state church as the Constitution's authors intended to prohibit.
No, I don't. Not if tax money went into buying those vehicles.
I AM for them saving us tax money by allowing some companies to place ads on Police vehicles . . . "In Smith & Wesson We Trust" or "In Sig Sauer We Trust".
Maybe a flame on the side saying "Super Spicy Hot Pepper Spray! Guaranteed to bring the heat!"
Every cop I have known has believed in God. Since their job is a dangerous one, I see no problem with that being on there. I am sure there are cops of other religions and atheist, it would be up to them to ask it to be changed or removed.
Not really, the moot point is that "God" is a title, not a name. God is with us, or any thing dealing with the God is anything does not deal with any particular God, it can refer to Brahman, Zeus or Ahnura Mazda.so who cares.
No, it's on money also and it does not mean anything. Trusting in God means, following clear directions in the bible regarding many of the important matters in our life.. If we follow such guidelines, we can make decision that will both please God and benefit us. Proverbs 3:5
I get tired of people being offended by everything. I think it's nice to have that on police cars, a comfort to the cops who put their lives on the line every day and who do believe in God. For those who don't believe in God then they're just empty words.
