According to a Facebook post, Sheriff Ernie Coleman endorsed his office being “politically incorrect” in sharing messages of “Merry Christmas” and “In God We Trust.”

The Facebook post joins other images on the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office page that include a Christmas tree and a thanks message from Everetts Church of Christ that quotes scripture.

An image on Coleman’s page shows handcuffs and a badge on the open pages of a Bible.

The “politically incorrect” Facebook post says:

NOTICE

This office is politically incorrect

WE SAY

Merry Christmas

God Bless America

We Salute our Flag & Give thanks to our Troops

IN GOD WE TRUST

This message fully endorsed by Sheriff Ernie Coleman

Earlier this week, a new sign outside of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office in Georgia had similar wording.

Sheriff Mike Jolley is seen standing by the new sign that reads:

WARNING: Harris County is politically incorrect. We say: Merry Christmas, God Bless America, and in God We Trust. We salute our troops and our flag. If this offends you… LEAVE!
