Bible verse removed from email signature (March 8, 2016)

An inspector from North Carolina’s License & Theft Bureau will no longer use a biblical verse as her email signature after FFRF contacted the department.

Her email signature included, “For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. Romans 13:4.”

FFRF Staff Attorney Patrick Elliott called the department’s attention to the signature in a letter dated Sept. 18, 2015. The department’s human resources director responded March 8, informing FFRF that the employee removed the quote from her email signature.
