A Texas Police department received a request to take off the phrase "In God We Trust" off their patrol cars.

Childress police chief Adrian Garcia says he sent back a response to The Freedom of Religion foundation last week.

The letter reads:

Dear Annie,

After carefully reading you letter I must deny your request in your removal of out Nations motto from our patrol units, and ask that you and the Freedom From Religion Foundation go fly a kite.

Respectfully,

Chief Adrian Garcia
