Florida Sheriff’s Office Has ‘In God We Trust’ Removed – It’s Not What You Think

We’ve seen a concerted effort over the last few years for the word God to be removed from all facets of education, public, and government buildings.

But this story truly shows that our country is going to the dogs.

When a sheriff’s administration building in Largo, Florida ordered new rugs for their building, they were surprised to see that the phrase ‘In God We Trust’ had been altered to remove the word ‘God.’

When the rugs arrived, the phrase had been mistakenly printed as – ‘In Dog We Trust.’



Perhaps the rug manufacturers were simply big fans of this guy?


Surprisingly, the error went unnoticed for a couple of months when a security guard finally noticed.

Via the Times Union:

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office in Florida has gone to the dogs. Well, at least its rugs have.

Department spokeswoman Cecilia Barreda said Wednesday that a new, $500 rug at the sheriff’s administration building said “In Dog We Trust” instead of “In God We Trust.”

The forest green rug with the sheriff’s yellow badge was in the entrance area for a couple of months when the error was discovered Wednesday by a deputy.

The new rugs have since been rolled up and put away until the corrected versions arrive.
