Who’d have thought you can’t use school time to haul kids off on a field trip to hear about how great Jesus is at a creationist zoo?

The Childress police department in Childress, TX (of course it’s Texas, lately it seems like it’s always Texas) is putting “In God We Trust” decals on its squad cars.
