Atheist Sues After NJ Rejects Her License Plate

Atheist license plate deniedNew Jersey has a free-speech lawsuit on its hands after a woman's attempt to score an atheist license plate got rejected, reports Shannon Morgan says it was bad enough when she typed in 8THEIST on the state website and learned that it was deemed objectionable.

But when she typed in BAPTIST and was allowed to proceed, she decided to lawyer up. The state is showing a clear preference for "theistic beliefs over non-theistic ones," says her lawsuit.

“This license plate issue may seem like a small matter but it is indicative of a much larger problem—atheists are often treated by the government as second-class citizens,” says her attorney.
