Finally received my NO GODS license plate

As promised, posting a picture or two of my new license plate. Thanks again to everyone who was so supportive during the brief but interesting fight to get this plate.



I look forward to the dirty looks and comments I am sure to receive. Just hopefully no vandalism.

Update: Thanks to Hemant Mehta for posting the update on this as well. I really think that this story reaching both Reddit and The Friendly Atheist helped push my situation to a successful resolution faster than it would have been without the power of The Internets.

You might consider putting some metal spikes on your rear bumper. Some people like to "push" cars with messages they don't agree with.

So your the one that took the license plate I requested last month? LMAO! I asked for the same thing and was informed they were taken. nutz.

Congrats, they look great!

That is some fine work! And I am also sad I can't have the licence plate now.

As a fellow Indianian, who is very tweaked by the "In God We Trust" Plate - http://getinhangon.wordpress.com/2008/04/24/in-god-we-trust-and-other-odds-and-ends/

I LOVE it.

Thanks for the comments. I know there was someone else who had trouble getting ATHEIST who was suddenly approved when I started fighting for NO GODS, so hopefully any other non-theist plates will be easier to get in Indiana now.

That's one hell of a fine thing to do :-)

One day I will have a car and my license plate will say "In Goat you trust"

cheers!

Gutsy! I hope you'll post about whatever reactions you do get.

Excellent! This would go great with my “Born Ok the First Time” bumper sticker:-) I wonder what kind of resistance I would get from the probate office down here in lower Alabama.

Very sweet indeed! Now all you have to do is buy a real American car and your statement will be even stronger.

That's great! I am so sorry that I didn't have my camera with me when I saw a car flattened beyond recognition except for the bumper sticker "Jesus is my copilot"

Review: can you please explain how a "real American car" has *anything* to do with my statement?

Also, what is a "real American car" anymore? I buy a car based on quality, reliability and functionality. Since most cars anymore are from parts all over the world (USA included) and assembled here or wherever, its impossible to find a "real American car" unless you build it yourself in your garage.

But my main question again is what that has to do with the statement made by my license plate

Here in Indonesia one cannot obtain custom plates and stating anything against Islam would be more dangerous than Indiana (in spite of the similarity in names :-)However, a good one there might be "In Dog we trust"

This is awesome!

Congratulations!

Chances are your "real American car" would have been put together up here in Canada anyway. So buy what you like. You don't have to worship American cars any more than you have to worship some America-designated god. Right?
