A gift to the Tega Cay Police Department by the Tega Cay Women’s Club has sparked serious social media backlash.  the monument, which was installed earlier this month at the police station, included the Bible verse, Matthew 5:9.

After seeing arguments online both and favor and opposed to the religious reference, the Police Department chose to remove the word ‘Lord’ from the monument, which appears 3 times in the verse.
