It's the faith-based education in PUBLIC school part I object to, not the religious imagery. Granted it's scary and gross but I'm a free-speecher. I'm okay with pornography so I can't object to this on those grounds. And any group can raise money through license plates here if it gets approved, but I don't like the idea of ANY faith-based education in my son's classroom.
License plates are expression by the states, even if they are purchased by individuals and even if there are several choices. This plate is an attempt to erase separation of church and state.
I wonder if someone tried to buy a Jesus plate, and got the vanity label "BULL SHIT" where the SAM PLE letter are? Would the state allow that? Of course not. Nevada banned a tofu fan's plate that said something to the effect of ILUVTOFU.
In other words, the state regulates what goes on the plates and is an expression of state policy.
