So stoked about the Hobby Lobby ruling today. Officially going to incorporate myself so I can get a religious exemption for my student loans debt they violate my deeply held religious conviction that all debts are supposed to be forgiven every seven years, as per the book of Deuteronomy.
The lawsuit, Morgan v. Martinez, was brought on behalf of Leesburg, N.J., resident Shannon Morgan, an atheist. In November 2013, Morgan attempted to register for an “8THEIST” plate on the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission’s website, only to have it rejected because it is “objectionable.” She then entered “BAPTIST” as a proposed plate in the commission website, and that plate was deemed permissible.
Morgan contacted the commission for assistance with registering her “8THEIST” plate and was told by an employee that it was unknown why her request had been denied. Other attempts made by Morgan to get approval for her plate were ignored.
This is not the first time an atheist plate has been denied by the commission. In August 2013, American Atheists President David Silverman applied for a plate that said “ATHE1ST,” which commission found “offensive.”
“The Commission thus has a practice of denying personalized license plates that identify vehicle owners as atheist, thereby discriminating against atheist viewpoints and expressing a preference for religion over atheism,” AU says in its lawsuit."
WTF, New Jersey.

I love that “say” thrown in there.
