O- H- I- O— Oh God, not again.

Several months ago with the help of Hemant Metha over at the Friendly Atheist the  Atheist community helped us defeat a new voting sticker in Ohio that would have acknowledged God on that sticker..

Well here in Ohio the Administration is at it again, changing our License Plate design.  They have offered 59 pre-set slogans and the ability to do a custom slogan.  One of the pre-set slogans is “With God all things are possible”.

 

The final selections will appear as part of the background of the plate.

So take a second and pop over to the website and vote!  You can vote 10 times every 24 hours.  Here at MOA we will be voting for Beautiful Ohio, and I encourage you to join us, or make up your own!

    There’s nothing like seeing ” With God all things are possible” on your divorce papers. Wonder what other documents it appears on.

    It’s the state motto… So it appears on a great deal of forms throughout the state. Something I would love to see change.

    Too much customizing if you ask me. Should be one style of plate with an option for the letters/numbers. ‘With God All Traffic Accidents Are Possible.’ lol

    With God All Things Are Possible – NOT

    Hi !
    I became aware of your group by way of the Friendly Atheist site (by way of YouTube)concerning the underhanded last minute fiasco delivered to your billboard campaign by Lind.

    I would like to join, pay dues and support the efforts of MOA, (Inc.)

    I submit the following which reveals once again, I think, the continuing coordinated efforts of the religious right to implant their irrational philosophy into our everyday life, to highjack our republic and make the USA a theocracy.

    The 396 yea votes was more than disheartening and the included encouragement to be displayed in public buildings and government institutions. (Court Houses ??? – Schools ???) DAMN !!!

    I will vote every day to the limit for the MOA recommendation, praying (NOT) that the small congregation of the church across from where I live does not vote.

    In God We Trust – NOT

    Congressmen Voted Who Against ‘In God We Trust’ Nov. 1, 2011

    The House of Representatives passed a bi-partisan resolution Tuesday night reaffirming “In God We Trust” as the official motto of the United States. The 396-9 vote came at the request of Rep. Randy Forbes (R-VA) — in part over President Obama’s refusal to correct remarks he made that misstated the motto as “E pluribus unum” instead of “In God We Trust.”

    Lawmakers voting against “In God We Trust” include
    Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY),
    Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-NY),
    Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich),
    Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA),
    Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO),
    Rep. Mike Honda (D-CA),
    Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA),
    Rep. Bobby Scott (D-VA),
    Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA).
    Voting present were Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) and Rep. Melvin Watt (D-NC).

    The bi-partisan resolution not only affirms “In God We Trust” as the national motto, but it also “encourages its display in public buildings and government institutions.”

    “There’s been no motto in U.S. history that’s been more inspirational than ‘In God We Trust,'” he said, noting that he felt it was appropriate for members of Congress to “firmly declare our trust in God.”
