I don't see the problem here....only the bias against Christianity.
Florida drivers can order more than 100 specialty plates celebrating everything from manatees to their favorite sport's teams....but wow mention Christianity and all HELL breaks loose. I'm sorry to inform you but there are people who believe in Christianity as much as others believe in their sports teams.
The reason this is even being discussed is because it's sponsored by Rep Bullard. He said:
"People who believe in their football team already have license plates they can buy. The new design is a chance for others to put a tag on their cars with something they believe in."
So what's the problem? One driver "believes" in the Miami Heat and another "believes" in God. Who cares? If someone else wants to put the Star of David on their plate....more power to them. Atheist? Go for it! Who cares? You can get bumper stickers that say these things.
The ACLU has made a statement about it, saying,The problem with the state manufacturing the plate is that it “sends a message that Florida is essentially a Christian state” and, second, gives the “appearance that the state is endorsing a particular religious preference,” said Howard Simon, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida.
Good ol' ACLU....gotta love em! Who pays for the court costs when they get involved in such trivial stuff?
Really tho? How so? If you can put a manatee on your plate does that mean the State is endorsing Manatees? How about a sports team?
Keep in mind that a "Trust God" and a "Trinity" plate has already been denied.
