We Told You! This Is A Christian Nation!
According to an AOL poll, Christianity Is THE ONLY Religion That Deserves Its Own License Plate
Venganza.org reports that Florida is considering a religious speciality license plate for its automobiles. The proposed plates, which include a cross and the words “I Believe,” promotes Christianity.
From the original article on AOL:
Some lawmakers say the state should be careful. Rep. Kelly Skidmore said she is a Roman Catholic and goes to Mass on Sundays, but she believes the “I Believe” plate is inappropriate for the government to produce.
What’s The Harm In That?
Maybe it will pass, maybe it won’t. But what’s the harm? We already have church billboards, bumper stickers, and other advertising. Why not let the religions have this one?
Well…I followed FSM’s article through to the AOL’s story and participated in their poll. The poll asked two simple yes-or-no questions:
- What do you think of Florida’s proposal to offer a Christian license plate?
- How would you feel about license plates that promoted other religions?
I was appalled at the results.
Not All Religions Should Be Allowed On A License Plate, Just Christianity
People who took this poll love the idea of promoting their own religion, but don’t necessarily think other religions should be able to do the same.
The numbers above reflect the results at the time I took the poll. Roughly 77,453 people thought it’d be ok to promote their own religion on a license plate, but only 51,660 people thought it’d be OK if other religions did too. That’s a difference of 25,793. Granted 9,728 more people took the poll on the left and not the right, but that still leaves a staggering 16,065 who don’t think non-Christian religions should be allowed to have their own license plate. At the very least.
Talk about religious intolerance!
I sincerely hope most Christians would not vote against other religions like this, but it does raise questions. Exactly who took part in this poll? Is it because the U.S. is perceived as a Christian nation? Are Christians threatened by other religions? What?
