Are you with the “Lord,” or against it? The word’s been removed from a fallen #memorial outside the Tega Cay #Police Department in #SC. Complaints about “#Lord,” on it caused city leaders to take it off. But now that it’s gone, complaints about the word’s removal are starting. pic.twitter.com/P9wz7iHI6E— Amber Roberts (@AmberFOX46) July 23, 2019
A South Carolina city literally scrubbed the word “Lord” from a memorial honoring fallen police officers after receiving complaints.
The Tega Cay Police Department put up a memorial, donated by a civic group, to honor fallen officers. It was similar to other memorials around the country, including Washington, D.C., but the city’s attorney cautioned that because it doesn’t have historical significance, it should be censored, FOX 46 reports.
All references to the Lord were removed.
