Hemant Mehta, writing on “The Friendly Atheist” blog, reports that:
“Church and State will remain separate on Georgia’s license plates thanks to all of you. Earlier this week, I mentioned that Georgia was having an online vote to decide it’s new license plate. And three of the eight entries had ‘In God We Trust’ printed on them. Well, there were enough complaints for the state to *ahem* clarify their policy.”
The final verse of the “Star-Spangled Banner” includes a variation of “In God We Trust,” which became the official motto of the United States of America. It appears on all U.S. coins and currency.
The state of Georgia is still soliciting public input regarding its license tags.
