Wow...really? You think it's important that you "...proudly display my religious convictions..."? Well...let's talk about that, shall we? I'm big on Taoism. I don't worship God nor do I worship the Devil. I'm not evil or a heathen and I respect you and I very much respect the Christian faith wholeheartedly. And there are other spiritual faiths that have beliefs that differ from yours, like Muslims and Buddhists...and that's a baseline freedom and equality factor in our country. I believe in and served abroad to protect the freedoms of EVERYONE here at home to exercise their religious beliefs in this country, within reason, and to all be treated as equals as citizens of a nation founded on principles of equality. So...can I get a meaningful phrase from the book of teachings of my choosing, the Tao Te Ching, on my tag? NO! Am I upset about it...no, of course not. What completely silliness this is, if you pause to think on it a moment. My car tag has nothing to do with my spiritual beliefs. It's an identification device for my vehicle. Good grief. Get over your pride. Your religion doesn't teach that. I'm sure that God wouldn't be upset with you that your vehicle identification device doesn't mention Him. Mahatma Gandhi once said, "I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. They are so unlike your Christ." It seems Christians often lose sight of what's important to their faith and what Christ taught. Let's all try to be respectful of one another and mindful of our differences. Just some food for thought. Have a nice day!
