I'm not religious, but I think this is great news. Our country was founded
on a belief of God. As in "G" "O" "D"If you
dont like it, go argue with the founding fathers.
As a FUNDRAISING opportunity?For whom?Who will decide
which groups will be worthy to receive the money? The Eagle Forum? The Knights
of Columbus? The Boy Scouts? Girl Scouts? Ku Klux Klan? ACLU? Relief
Society? Utah Bowling Association?Come on. This idea is fraught
with all sorts of questionable questions.
"...to raise money for groups promoting patriotic activities."====== Such as who or what is "patriotic"?The
Utah Eagle Forum?Extreme Right-Wing sponsored political attack ads?Who decides what is considered patriotic?I'm a
Veteran,I'm a Mormon, I'm Patriotic, and I'm a
Liberal.Will any of these "funds" go toward anything I deem
- "patiotic", such as Veteran services,Saving the
enviroment, Teaching historical facts, and not right-wing twisted folklore
and fables?I'd like some answers please, and a lot more
@Cris B.So if a person doesn't believe in God they
shouldn't live in the USA? There's some countries like
that out there, and I don't think you want to live in any of them. I
don't want ours to become one of them.
What a disgusting violation of the separation of church and state.
As a Conservative Republican this seems like a really bad idea. As has already
been expressed, who decides which groups qualify? Good intentions, bad results.
Several founding fathers, including George Washington, were Agnostic. They did
not believe in outward expressions of religion. I actually do wonder how
he'd feel about this??
@Crhis B Typing in all CAPITAL letters does not make your argument
To the negative naysayers:As long as our money has "In God We
Trust" printed on it there is no problem making a license plate available
for those persons wishing to say the same thing by making a purchase. You
don't have to have one on your car.
Which God? Oh.....
I'm a MormonIm a conservativeI'm godlyI believe in
ChristI like this license plate
You know if you want to say "in god I trust" on your license plate Signs
R Us will do it for about $10. Much cheaper. You know our coin money
never had any mention of god until after the civil war right? Paper bills
didn't have it until the 1950's. You could get a bumper
sticker but you really want the government to say it. Way to go small government
que the ACLUThey can go pound sand, with relish.
Old man,The state legislature decides how the funds are spent – you
knew that, but could not resist the chance to spew more DNC or MSNBC hate
speech.Secular voice,You appear to be agreeing with Teddy
Roosevelt – of course, he objected to having the phrase on our currency
because he felt it blasphemed God.Pagan,Which one do you want
it to reference? That decision remains with the individual, as it should.
A SWINE will never know the worth of a. Pearl!
I think we all know what god said about those that draw near their mouths but
the heart stays far away. I have to wonder why some feel the need to proclaim
their belief so publicly on such a regular bases.
secular voice- How? How is it a violation? It's ok to put the word God on
our legal tender but not a license plate? YOU don't have to buy one. You
would have an argument if it was on ALL plates, but it's not. In fact, it
looks like it will be on very few. You most likely won't see more than one
on your daily commute. I see about 50 Obama bumper stickers and that offends me
more deeply than you can imagine.As Bill Maher said (lefties usually
love him) "If it weren't for throwing conniption fits,we wouldn't
get exercise. I have a better idea. Let's have an amnesty, from the left
and from the right, on every made-up, fake, play-acted hurt, insult, slight and
affront. Let's have a day of No Outrage. One day a year when you will not
find some tiny thing someone did or said offensive and pretend you can barely
continue functioning until they apologize. I don't want to live in a
country where no one ever says anything that offends anyone. That's why we
I am religious. There are those that aren't. If you want a slogan on your
license plate consistent with the views of our founding fathers, you are free to
choose. If you don't, you are free to choose. It can't be stated any
