In July, 2019, a memorial to law enforcement officers, donated by a local womens’ group, was erected outside the new police headquarters in Tega Cay, South Carolina.
A simple stone monument, the memorial included the inscription “Matthew 5:9” on the front and a simple prayer on the reverse side.
As is the trend of the day, someone complained about the religious references on public property. Bending to secular (and minority) will, city officials removed the monument.
The public outcry was swift and loud and received national attention.
Citizens and church groups, supported and advised by Faith Wins, protested in writing, on social media and in person with such God-inspired veracity that, ultimately, the memorial was restored to the property.
Except for the scripture reference on the front, the monument and the full prayer are now on public display.
