Why Don’t California License Plates Advertise God the Way Florida’s Do?

See? Underneath MYFLORIDA.COM you can see IN GOD WE TRUST:

You know, back in the day, it used to say “Sunshine State,” right?

  1. California Dan says:

    Possibly because California is on average better educated, and knows that the US Constitution calls for strict separation of church and state. Another reason is that while man has invented many thousands of versions of beliefs in various gods, none of these thousands of Gods have ever been shown to exist. This makes trusting them somewhat difficult.

  2. Florida Joe says:

    Probably because they pander to the god-less minority who refuse to acknowledge the overwhelming facts and evidence that our country was founded on a Judeo-Christian heritage. There is absolutely nothing in the Constitution that talks about separation of church and state. Find me one reference in the Constitution to back this claim, and maybe I’ll donate a few dollars to the “highly-educated” state of California representatives who are bankrupting the state from their enlightening failed policies.

    I’m guessing “California Dan” and “Florida Joe” are the same person, probably a rhetoric undergrad, demonstrating the antithesis of dialectical method.

    Different IPs tho, FWIW.

    Those plates are optional. The standard Florida license plates comes in three versions. The all look the same but you can choose what is on the bottom. You can choose between Sunshine State, In God We Trust or your county name.

    My opinion is that having MYFLORIDA.COM instead of the state name on the top of the plate is silly.

    Indeed, silly. Didn’t know about the different plates. Thx!
