Woman Suing New Jersey for Rejecting Her Atheist License Plate

Woman Suing New Jersey for Rejecting Her Atheist License Plate

A New Jersey woman says the state discriminated against her on the basis of her beliefs when it rejected her request for a license plate reading "8THEIST" as "objectionable."

Nonbeliever Shannon Morgan, of Maurice Township, N.J., said that after her custom plate was rejected, she tested "BAPTIST," and the Motor Vehicle Commission's website accepted it.

Now she's filing a First Amendment suit against New Jersey, with representation from Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

A spokesperson for the MVC says the state doesn't discriminate against nonbelievers, citing a case where American Atheists president David Silverman's request for a plate reading ATHE1ST was allowed after a review.

Morgan's lawsuit says the fact that Silverman had to fight to get his plate approved establishes a pattern of rejecting atheist plates in the State, "thereby discriminating against atheist viewpoints and expressing a preference for theism over non-theism."

Her plate wasn't just inadvertently rejected by a computer algorithm, either. A spokesperson for the MVC told NJ.com, "We review every request personally ... and we review them for anything that's offensive of objectionable."

License Plates are rejected for reasons they consider to be "inappropriate".   It's nothing personal lady. If she is an Athiest, why did she choose to get one that say Baptist?    Was that a test to see if they are infringing on her religious, or non-religious belief/rights??
The state of NJ may have saved her a lot heartache. Sporting plates like that may have cause her more trouble than it's worth.

It's pretty lame that you can do one thing, but not the other.  Living in NoVA has made me realize people will put as much of their life story in their license plates that'll fit on there. LOL  If this lady wants to be able to do this, then she should.  *shrugs*  The state did this to themselves.

Guuurl! You live in the deep souf. You have seen cars with bible verses listed on the plate, 'saved', blssed, favored, etc. This woman wants the same rights as they do and now she is about to get paid as well.LOL
