Crist: Don't like Jesus plate? Don't buy it.


Source: http://blogs.tampabay.com/buzz/2009/04/crist-dont-like-jesus-plate-dont-...

Earlier in the day, Weston Democratic Sen. Nan Rich said she wouldurge Gov. Charlie Crist to veto proposed license plates that depicted Jesus and that depicted a cross in front of a stained-glass window.

Asked about whether he'd veto the legislation, Crist said no way.

"I would not veto those .... No, I would not," Crist said.

So you don't have a problem with Jesus on a license plate?

Crist: "I don’t. No."

What about separation of church and state?

Crist: “If they don’t want one they don’t have to buy one.”

Is that state endorsement of religion?

"I think it ... What's it say? 'In God We Trust' on every single piece of monetary, coins and paper we have? I think it’s fine."

Honestly, I don't really care that the Florida residents have the option to choose the very sexy Jesus license plate. Obviously many states offer other personalized plates for various causes and I just can't be bothered to get riled up about it.

Anyone disagree?

As Crist says, "In God we trust" is still on our money and this country was founded on Christian principles, although we should probably wonder why at this point. Surely if one wishes to define his or her faith on a license plate, there should be no objection whatsoever. It was never the intention of our founding fathers to deny our right to demonstrate our faith in the creator.

I saw a personalized plate earlier reading: SZLING.

Yeah, I've never understood vanity plates. There was a girl in my high school whose read, "I Cheer".....guess what she did? :oy:

Y'know though, I don't think it's all that respectful. I wouldn't put my kid's face on a license plate, where it would get sooty, splashed with mud, hit by other cars...

Doesn't bother me either.

Exactly.

It doesn't bother me, as long as no one complains when other religions and atheists want to be able to buy custom plates advertising their beliefs.
