Senate Bill 293 is in the prefile stage and would, if passed, require extra fees to the state government to have diety specific language removed from license plates in Georgia.
SB 293 would include “In God We Trust” on each license plate. Having this removed would require an extra fee. This bill is in direct violation of each citizen First Amendments rights. The separation of church and state is a fundamental right that all US citizens have to protect us and our ability to practice the religion of our choosing without governmental interference.
In choosing GOD over other dieties, forces, and no diety; the government is choosing Christianity over other religions. As the US Constitution and related precedents hold; this is a violation of the separation of church and state. This is no different than having the license plate state, “In Allah We Trust”. The government shall not promote one religion over another.
