And all this from the usual suspects:
Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
You pay taxes. You pay for the plate.
You can’t have this:
But you can have this:
From the website of the: Low country Secular Humaist Club of SC:
“These plates are an alternative to the existing “In God We Trust” plates that are already available in South Carolinia for those who feel that “In Reason We Trust” better describes their situation.”
"Why did we arrange for these tags?
In South Carolina, there are many people driving cars with license tags that say “In God We Trust”. However, those of us who do not believe in God, as well as some who do, think that drivers ought to be using reason while driving and not just trusting their safety to a supernatural being. For instance, a driver approaching a dangerous intersection and hearing a siren could use reason to conclude that it might be reasonable to slow down, or they could trust that God will protect them and drive on at top speed.
So, as a political statement that not all South Carolinian drivers believe in supernatural beings, to show support of the power of human reasoning (which, after all, allowed us to build cars and invent traffic lights in the first place), or just because you think it sounds cool, please consider ordering an IRWT plate for your own car! "
So this is an attack on Religious. No suprise there.
It’s nice to know that the government or SC endorses surfing, square dancing, secualr humanism, and for the Jimmy Buffet fans, there’s a Parrot Head plate, which was also enacted legislatively.
It’s nice to know that the government of SC legislatively endorses pot smoking and “Why Don’t We Get Drunk and Screw”. But “I Believe”, whooa that’s just over the top.
