The Florida state legislature is considering creating a special Jesus license plate for its state’s drivers. ‘Cause, you know how oppressed Christians are in America. I mean, if they weren’t, wouldn’t you see churches all over the place and wouldn’t churches have tax exemptions? Uh, wait…
Anyway, this idea for the Dead Carpenter license plate is completely unconstitutional, but hey, why should THAT stop the Penis State from going through with it?
Since this stupidity probably will sail through the Florida legislature (what politician wants to be against the Son O’ God, after all, especially in the South?), here’s my offer:
Let’s see who has balls in Florida. Apply for one of the special Jeezus plates with the license “NO GOD.” If you get it, I’ll pay the state specialty license plate fee. From what I see on the Florida DMV web site, the fees vary depending on the specific plate, but they tend to run in the $25 range. OK, it’s not much of an incentive, perhaps, but hey, it won’t cost you anything extra to speak your mind in a way GUARANTEED to get attention.
If you apply for “NO GOD” and they won’t give it to you, I suspect the ACLU will have something to say about it. Either way, you’ll be a news story, at least short-term. OK, so who’s going to step up to the plate (nyuk nyuk) in Florida?
