PostSubject: ‘Christian’ License Plates   Wed Dec 17, 2008 4:49 pm

Quote :
Score one for the good guys! Americans United for Separation of Church and State sponsored litigation in Federal Court to stop the state of South Carolina from issuing specialty Christian themed license plates featuring a cross, a stained-glass window and the words "I Believe." Yesterday U.S. District Judge Cameron McGowan Currie issued a preliminary injunction forbidding the state to issue or manufacture the plates.

The measure that authorized the special plates was passed unanimously by both houses of South Carolina's legislature, despite the fact that some of the legislators openly admitted that they would not vote for similar plates for minority faiths.

But even that sort of misses the point. The crux of the matter is not really whether or not all churches are represented, although even that issue could become troublesome. The specialty license plate looked like this:

Here are some alternates...

The Flying Spaghetti Monster...


Scientology...


The Church of Dick Cheney...

Why don't you post this on the Freethought Fellowship Forum? They'll ROTFL!

[Just stay clear of RareBear's tender toes, and you'll be OK. The monitor with a chip on his shoulder has been keeping a low profile since being sorely chastised from all sides for the last in a regrettable series of flame-ups and kick-outs.]

I think the problem could of been avoided if it was voluntary to have plates and if you could get them from private companies. That way you could choose your plate like you do bumper stickers. The only difference between a plate and bumper sticker would be that your plate is registered with a company to prove it is yours. I'm for the separation of license plate and state(:
