Arizona's 'In God We Trust' License Plates: 1 million to SPLC designated hate group

Arizona’s ‘In God We Trust’ License Plates Found To Fund Anti-LGBTQ Group

Two new bills hope to increase regulations and remove the plate that a lawmaker says has fed over $1 million “to an extremist hate group.”

An Arizona state senator is working to increase regulations on specialty license plates after the state’s “In God We Trust” plate was found to benefit an anti-LGBTQ organization that’s been deemed a “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

State Sen. Juan Mendez (D) revealed that proceeds from sales of the specialty license plate support the Alliance Defending Freedom organization, a group known for supporting an evangelical baker who refused to bake a cake for a gay couple. The group also recently made news for representing a Christian charity that refused to allow a homeless transgender woman at its overnight shelter.

The Arizona Department of Transportation’s (ADOT) website does not mention that ADF is the beneficiary of the $25 plates. It states that “$17 goes to promote the national motto ‘In God We Trust.’”

1. STOP FUNDING HATE GROUPS

They use any means to collect money for their evil purpose. I had hoped the 21st century would have left these people behind in the past. I think the middle of the country is full of those who are inbreed and uneducated who are still in the last century.
