This was a smart idea. I was against this plate because I didn't know who would be deciding the rules on what was patriotic. Pay the money and fly the flag.

Agreed.

The original bill was too ambigous as to where those "funds" could/would end up [Eagle Forum, Heritage Foundation, Tea-Party express, etc.]

A One time fee, with no annual fund raisng for special interest groups is better.

How about a Mosque or a Menorah? How about Allah or Buddha? Or maybe Thor?

@ one old man

You're conviently missing the point. It isn't a Temple or a Jesus likeness or a Bible or Book of Mormon. You define God however you wish. If you don't like it, don't buy the plate.

It still says "In God we trust" on our money and that's good enough for me. (If you don't like money with that printed or stamped on it, send all of it you can find to me at P.O. Box XXXX.....ha-ha-ha.)

I thought conservatives were all about the 'free market'?

Now, we have to offer 'God' on my public tax dollar?

We keep seeing this pattern in Utah.

**'Federal judge dismisses Summit suit against Pleasant Grove' - By Dennis Romboy - DSNews - 06/04/10

"A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit against the city that claim it violated the establishment clause of the US consitution by allowing a Ten Commandments monument by rejecting one showing the the Salt Lake-based religious sect’s beliefs. The clause in the First Amendment prohibits government from adopting a national religion."

@ Pagan

You, too, have missed the point. Just what national "religion" has government established by saying "In God We Trust" on it's license plate? Please be specific when answering. Also, why is it acceptable on our money???

How is this "(your) public tax dollar" when individuals are buying the plate? I have a firefighter plate on my vehicle and used to have a children's issues plate. Why aren't you against those---certainly children are as important to many, or more so in some instances, as God.

How is this a free market issue, really, conservative or otherwise?

You just want to complain about it; so noted, as usual.

@too smart for you
So too smart tell us how Jesus felt about the money changers? What do you think he really thinks of our government adding in God we trust to our money for the sole purpose of legitimization?

Adding in god we trust to our paper monetary system was nothing but an article of legitimation to get people to buy into the new monitory system, kind of disrespectful to God if you ask me.
