Religious vanity plate ruled legal

From the Seattle Post-Intelligencer:

The Department of Licensing yesterday dismissed a complaint against a vanity plate imprinted with "JOHN316."

"The plate is not offensive under our rules and was never in danger of being canceled," said Licensing Department Director Liz Luce.

The plate refers to the verse in the New Testament that says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

LOL, I like that the paper took the opportunity to include the verse that the plate was making reference to. How many people would have seen the plate and looked it up as opposed to the number of people that read that paper? It kinda turns the bigots' efforts on its head. Poetic justice.
