FFRF mails stickers to Kansas town

E pluribus unum

FFRF has mailed decals boasting America’s original motto, “E Pluribus Unum,” to the city of Haven, Kan., to counter “In God We Trust” stickers on police cars there.

FFRF, in a letter to Mayor Adam Wright, notes that the City Council on May 2 did the right thing by asking the local police department to remove “In God We Trust” decals from vehicles. It also voted to stop using its official Facebook page to promote Christianity.

Unfortunately, the council immediately caved to a backlash, and reversed course, allowing the godly decals to remain on the vehicles — with the condition that similar messages supporting other beliefs would also be allowed.

Thus, FFRF mailed its decal featuring the original secular motto, “E Pluribus Unum” (“out of many, [come] one”), which celebrates diversity and pluralism, not religious orthodoxy.

FFRF notes that placing a godly motto on police cars also amounts to an unconstitutional religious test for police officers, some of whom are likely not religious.

“Let us know if you need more,” FFRF  cheekily invites.
