On Tuesday, partition of chapel and state guard dog association American Atheists, the Mississippi Humanist Association, and three nonbeliever Mississippi inhabitants recorded a claim against the state’s magistrate of income, Chris Graham, for supposedly stomping all over the privileges of nonreligious occupants by compelling them to show the public aphorism on their own vehicles.
Since 2019, the standard permit tag in Mississippi has incorporated the expression, “In God We Trust.” As such, vehicle proprietors in the state are needed to show the message on their vehicles, or, in all likelihood pay an expense for an elective plan. Furthermore, for some specific vehicles — like trailers and bikes — there are no elective plans accessible.
With the claim, the alliance of agnostics desires to compel Mississippi to give nonreligious inhabitants an elective tag at no additional expense. “Any place I utilize my trailer, I am compelled to claim a strict thought that I don’t accept,” said offended party Jason Alan Griggs in the claim. “Envision a Christian cruising all over with ‘In No God We Trust’ or ‘In Allah We Trust.'”
Another offended party, Derenda Hancock, who portrays herself as “an extreme nonbeliever,” demands the public authority ought not have the ability to disregard “her entitlement to be liberated from religion.” “I don’t need Jesus riding on my car,” she supposedly told a label specialist in January 2019. Around then, she paid the $32 for a claim to fame “Mississippi Blues Trail” tag and did likewise again in 2020.
