Do you agree with the Laclede County Sheriff's Department's decision to add the words "In God We Trust" to the bumpers of its patrol vehicles?

The Laclede County Sheriff's Department began applying decals that say "In God We Trust" to the bumpers of its patrol vehicles on July 21. In an interview with the Lebanon Daily Record, Laclede County Sheriff Wayne Merritt said that the decision to add the decals was partly a response to a letter circulated by Springfield attorney Dee Wampler, but that it was something that he had wanted to do prior to seeing the letter. Merritt also said a variety of events in the past year —including the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., the U.S. Supreme Court Ruling on same-sex marriage and the controversy over the Confederate flag — collectively influenced his decision to display the motto. "It's time now for the majority to be heard," Merritt stated of the decision. "The minority is always making noise, and they always seem to get the biggest stage and microphone from the media, from California, from Hollywood."
