John "Charity" Spring has forgotten that the word God is different in
different languages. God is God in English. But in others it may be Yahweh or
Allah, or any of many other words.In fact, the Muslims and Jews will
tell you that their God and our God are one in the same. Which
brings me to wonder why -- if we all profess to honor the same god -- we fight
with one another so frequently about it.So I guess when someone like
"Charity" wants to stop others from worshiping as they believe to be
right, he's just keeping up one more great religious conviction.But somehow, it just doesn't seem charitable to shout "MY GOD IS
BETTER THAN YOUR GOD!"
@Dektol,This country was founded upon the belief in God, not Allah.
Sorry. In God we trust.
How about In Allah we Trust?This smacks of religious intolerance unless
they open it up to all 'religions'.
Anything that makes the liberals angry is good with me!
This makes sense to me, I have to put my trust in God every time I drive in this
state....and if we write God on more things it will really impress
him.. a lot!
I can't believe that "Constitutional Carry" and license plates are
what are paying lawmakers (and now a lot more) to do. Don't they have real
issues to deal with? Maybe they should meet ever two years.
@ One Old Man and BlueI'm OK with this being on our license
plates and not the other sayings because this is printed on our money as well.
Does it have any of the others printed on it? No.......Get with
history and drop the PC in everything because you're just making yourself
miserable.Tolsty and others would have the plate say "In
government we trust." Such is shaky ground indeed, especially of late.
"But there is no reason to prohibit the worship of God simply because doing
so might possible cause some slight offense to someone."When and
how did putting "in God we Trust" on a license plate have anything
whatsoever to do with "worshiping God"?I have no problem
with it, however, as has been stated previously, allowing "praise Allah"
should not be subjected to exactly the same requirements. That is clear in the
constitution.See the problems that this can cause?
@jcsat some point you have to know that just because you want what
you are saying to be true does not make it true.for the record I have no real problem with this plate but do hope that other groups that meet
the same requirement of people willing to purchase the plates gets similar
George Washington himself, right in the beginning, added the phrase "so help
me God" to the presidential oath of office. In addition, every one of the
Founding Fathers supported this declaration and found it to be Constitutional.
The fact that liberal left-wing extremists don't like this irrefutable fact
doesn't make it any less true.
JCS: "Old man has forgotten that this Country was founded with the intention
that its people would honor God."The fact that you believe that
doesn't remotely make it true."If fringe groups want to
worship human beings, animals, or inanimate objects, let them."Sure - because the legislature will have absolutely no problem with "In
Flying Spaghetti Monster We Trust" on state-issued license plates, right?"But there is no reason to prohibit the worship of God simply
because doing so might possible cause some slight offense to someone."No. It's not about what is offensive to people personally or in
groups. The question is what is offensive to the constitution. Using government
to promote religious beliefs - that's what's offensive to the
constitution.Dont' you get it that if the state sanctions
"In God We Trust" on a license plate it is then bound to give equal
access to "In Zeus We Trust?"The popularity of these license
plates will only carry them so far through court challenges, but they will
inevitably lose and and up costing taxpayers millions. Message
bills from the Leg... It's the silly season in high gear.
I thinks its Great. Were told by people who have no faith. To keep our faith in
to ourself. Hope Montana does the same. Im going to court the house in the
morning to see if they will consider it. Its a.consertive state so my hope.is.
Old man has forgotten that this Country was founded with the intention that its
people would honor God. That is what this plate does. If fringe groups want to
worship human beings, animals, or inanimate objects, let them. But there is no
reason to prohibit the worship of God simply because doing so might possible
cause some slight offense to someone.
I wonder what will happen when someone asks for a plate that says, "In Allah
We Trust?"Or "In Buddha We Trust?"Or . . . .
I'd have no problem with these plates -- as long as others are
not denied the opportunity to honor their concept of deity.
