It only get worse:
I don’t care if it rains or freezes
As long as I got my plastic Jesus
Sittin’ on the dashboard of my car.
If a cop gives me a ticket
Jesus tells him where to stick it
If the religious nuts in Tallahassee have their way, Jesus will be moving from the dashboard to the license plate.
Led by state Sen. Gary Siplin, D- Orlando, the legislature is considering two new license plates.
One shows The Cross and the other shows Jesus on The Cross. The former is for Protestants and the latter is for Catholics.
A similar plate was passed in South Carolina and it took a Federal judge about fifteen minutes to grant a preliminary injunction. A final trial is set for later this year.
Personally I prefer the one showing the crucifixion.
Not withstanding the fact that he was born a Semite and lived and ate among the poor, apparently he had time to regularly visit 24 Hour Fitness and get plastic surgery.
How else do you explain that License Plate Jesus is really one buff Anglo?

If that does not violate the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, what does?
More to the point is Article I Section 3 of Florida’s Constitution which says: :“No revenue of the state or any political subdivision or agency thereof shall ever be taken from the public treasury directly or indirectly in aid of any church, sect, or religious denomination or in aid of any sectarian institution.
Hopefully the ACLU and the ADL will look into this.
“That was no pig that was a Mexican.
Yakov Litzman, the Israeli Health Minister, has put the “yahoo’ back in Netanyahu. He has concluded that naming the potential pandemic “Swine Flu is insulting to pigs. He has called for it to be renamed the “Mexican Flu.
