Since 2019, the standard Mississippi license plate has included “In God We Trust.” Car owners are forced to promote this religious statement or pay an additional fee for a specialty plate without it. For trailer, RV, and motorcycle owners, motorists with disabilities, as well as drivers with a custom plate message, no alternative to the “In God We Trust” plate is available. In the lawsuit, American Atheists demands that Mississippi offer a plate without “In God We Trust” at no additional fee.
Should Christians be allowed to force others to do their evangelical work for them?
There should be an option for, "In God We Trust to relieve our fear that death is final even though there is no evidence that God exists or that there is any Life After Death." Of course you'd need a really big license plate or really small print. Here's a novel idea, how about we simply put some unique numbers and the name of the state on these plates. I'm sure that in Mississippi one can find some church or group or organization pushing religious nonsense if they care to hear it. No need to force it on innocent drivers.
To be clear: Atheism is not a disbelief in gods or a denial of gods; it is a lack of belief in gods.

Not believing isn't the same as believing not.
I must assume that knowing is better than not knowing, venturing than not venturing; and that magic and illusion, however rich, however alluring, ultimately weaken the human spirit.
