    I chuckled at the one I saw in NYC that said THX ALLAH on an S class Mercedes.

    "remember that the opposite of the belief of heaven is hell and that is a belief that should also get a license plate too."

    Say what? My belief--it's called atheism--is that the lights go out and your done. Besides, if you want to "also get a license plate too," I think you'll end up with two.

      "Say what? My belief–it’s called atheism–is that the lights go out and your done. Besides, if you want to “also get a license plate too,” I think you’ll end up with two." Well I never said that Atheism is that belief - a jump to a conclusion. Satanic worship believes in the Devil and Hell over God and Heaven.

    One more for the state has no business putting religious imagery and slogans on official license plates. The owner of the vehicle is welcome to plaster all the nonsense or wisdom they want on the car.

    The court made the right call. Others have eloquently expressed why.
