Freedom From Religion Want “For God and Country” Patches To Be Removed.

The Christian Journal  by Editor     Thurs., Aug. 16, 2018

SIDNEY, Ohio — One of the nation’s most conspicuous Church-State separation groups has written to a sheriff’s office in Ohio to claim that the “For God and Country” patches worn on deputy uniforms are unconstitutional.

The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) sent a letter on Wednesday to the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office to request that the patches be removed. It provided two photographs of the patches as worn on official uniforms.

“It is inappropriate and unconstitutional for the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office to promote or endorse religion,” the correspondence, written by Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor, read. “Anyone viewing these patches would understand the sheriff’s office to be endorsing religion and a belief in a God.”

“Displaying ‘For God and Country’ on sheriff’s deputy uniforms demonstrates a preference for religion over non-religion on behalf of the sheriff’s office,” she asserted. “These religious patches convey a message to non-religious citizens that they are not favored members of the political community.”

FFRF also contended that deputies who might not believe shouldn’t have to wear a message they don’t agree with, or stick out as an unbeliever by not wearing one.

“We strongly urge you to keep in mind your obligation not to promote or endorse religion, and we ask that you remove these patches from Shelby County Sheriff’s Office uniforms,” the letter requested.

It is not yet known whether or not Sheriff John Lenhart plans to respond.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
