TRIGGER WARNING: The word abortion is used.
For John, BLUF: I realize why some think religion is being suppressed. Nothing to see here; just move along.
This case took two and a half years to come to decision, but on 22 May of this year it was decided. Here is the decision. And here is the story, "Court Rules Pro-Life Views Are “Patently Offensive,” Bans Choose Life License Plates in New York". It is New York State, but it is also a Federal Court ruling.
The Federal Decision quotes New York State Law:
N.Y.C.R.R. § 16.5(e), which states that “no plate shall be issued under this part which is, in the discretion of the commissioner, obscene, lewd, lascivious, derogatory to a particular ethnic or other group, or patently offensive.”There you are, those who choose life are patently offensive to their fellow citizens. What can I say?
First Amendment? Pfft.
So that is where we are.
