The state’s ruled that having a license plate with a bible reference on it (JOHN316) is cool. Someone complained and they said “pishaw, that’s dumb, there’s no problem here”. Which, sure, GODSGUD and stuff is all over the place.

So here’s my question — can I get a ruling on whether I can have PAGAN1 or GOSATAN or NOGOD or GODZDEAD or whatever? If it’s cool to proselytize on vanity license plates, then it should be open to everyone, no matter who’s offended by it, right? If the state’s really willing to tolerate controversial vanity plates because they’re in favor of the country’s majority religion, then shouldn’t it be open season for this kind of thing?

And if not, why not?
