Matter of faith?

February 24, 2009


To the editor:

So, the Kansas House has sufficient faith in the believers of Kansas to appropriate $10,000 of scarce state resources to fund the production of license plates declaring “In God We Trust.” They are betting that these plates will eventually turn a profit. Perhaps they should hedge their bet by also producing plates bearing the motto, “Trust But Verify.”

@Jonas: Actually, Latin is no longer germane to where we are as a country. It should read, "fuera de muchos, uno".

I just want a license plate that doesn’t have a brown hairy thing on it or a plain flower! give me something bright and cheerful and I will buy it, not religious quotes, anyone who is going to buy that just for the quote probably already has a fish and a sticker of some sort already on their car, how about a coexist one? Or equality? Something like that.

Jonas, nobody, and I mean nobody, wants some darned foreign language on their license plate.

"in God we trust, can God trust us?"

If "Jesus Saves" do you think he's getting a better return than the rest of us?

Nothing another round of tax cuts won't cure!

More tax cuts for license plates!

More tax cuts for the faithful!

How about: "In the Flying Spaghetti Monster We Trust!" Still need a tax cut to make it work.

More and bigger tax cuts, please!

We should change the motto back to E Pluribus Unum

Certainly much more positive.

I want a tag that the NSA guys like to use..."In God we Trust, all others, we monitor!

If "In God We Trust" weren't our National Motto, the LTE writer would have something to gripe about.

In God We Trust, all others pay cash

Or, if we're going to go with Ronaldus Maximus quotes - how about (in the spirit of all things Lawrence) -

"...there must be a pony in here somewhere!"
