Silverman, the president of American Atheist, applied for a licence plate reading "Athe1st" since "atheist" had already been taken. He soon received a response saying that the tag was "objectionable".
“‘Atheist’ is not an offensive or objectionable word anymore than the word ‘Jew’ or ‘Christian’ or ‘man’ or ‘woman’ is,” Silverman stated. “It is a common noun, it is in the dictionary and it is not only allowed in multiple other states, the word is used on dog tags for the U.S. government. It is who and what I am.”
The officials called it "clerical error" which is funny seeing that a DMV employee told Silverman themselves that the tag was offensive. Also since an atheist tag had been approved before. (Simply changing the 1 to an i makes thing offensive apparently. Who knew!) No matter the reason for the denial things have been corrected. Silverman is now the proud owner of his "athe1st" plate. Which shows how things magical be come fair once things go to the media and someone is seen as ignorant. Simply magic.
Anyway, from now on on most stories I will have Tea Party Conservative comments on stories. How? I recently got an account on a Tea Party Facebook knock off. So below will be a few regarding this story.
