“It’s meaningful. It’s powerful. Those words are intended to encourage.”
Foxnews.com reports: Sullivan’s non-profit organization, In God We Trust America, has offered to pay for the decals.
U.S. Rep. Kevin McCarthy, who represents Bakersfield, had said he fully supported the decals.
“Displaying ‘In God We Trust’ — the official motto of the United States — on Bakersfield Police Department cars is a testament to each officer’s commitment to upholding the rule of law and defending the City of Bakersfield and its residents,” he said in a statement to The Californian.
Lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union showed up at the city council meeting to oppose the proposal, calling it bad public policy.
“Unlike God, police officers are fallible,” ACLU lawyer Jordan Wells said. “Their conduct should be scrutinized by the public, and when they overstep their authority, we must insist on accountability.”
One council member, Andrae Gonzales, said he is Christian but voted against the decals.
“The God I believe in is much bigger than a bumper sticker,” he said.
City council members in nearby Delano approved a proposal last month to add “In God We Trust” to police vehicles. The city of Shafter, which borders Bakersfield, is expected to vote on a similar proposal later this month.
