All Beliefs are Welcome Here!

An appeals court gave new life Tuesday to a lawsuit of a man who claims a Native American image on Oklahoma's license plates violates his religious rights as a Christian by portraying Indian religion.

The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 3-0 that a judge in Oklahoma City erred last year by throwing out the lawsuit of Keith Cressman, an Oklahoma City-area resident.

Cressman, who says he "adheres to historic Christian beliefs," objects to the image of a Native American shooting an arrow toward the sky. He claims the image unconstitutionally contradicts his Christian beliefs by depicting Indian religious beliefs, and that he shouldn't have to display the image.

*sigh*

Just another example of how intolerant some Christians can be.  The image is not even meant to be a religious symbol.  It's a representation of a Southwestern art piece.

The guy thinks it's a pagan 'prayer'.  The native shooting an arrow into the sky to bring rain.

"Tea Party lunatics." Right. Nice Ad Hominum there. Don't forget that not all of us on this site are Leftists. You are entitled to your opinion, but save the name calling for the schoolyard, where it belongs.

I can't stand jerk offs like that. It's not even a Pagan symbol.

Sounds like a real dumbass.

I can see where the guy is pissed. He's an idiot but it IS a religious symbol even if it hadn't meant to be ( the article even says the statue is of a man shooting an arrow into the sky to bring rain which was part of a religious custom) however I don't think his rights are being violated. If he really doesn't want it on there just let him get a new plate without it without the vanity plate price.

What Keith Cressman's real problem is that OK. has the largest Native American population in these United States and I'm pretty damn sure most of them know what that statue means and after 300 years of Christians trying to force converts of the heathens from their pagan ways, he sure doesn't want the government validating their beliefs by putting a famous art work that depicts it. 

He can say what he want's about it being against his chrisitan beliefs that not the real issue he has.

Here is a couple of more state's he can go after also. 

He better watch this one, it seems to be promoting the homosexual life style.

Oh no Southcarolina has a crestent moon on theirs and some people will know what that means. Shhh ...pagan's.

Oh no Southcarolina has a crestent moon on theirs and some people will know what that means. Shhh ...pagans.

It means Satanism.

Don't give them any ideas.  They may very well go after it.  Remember what fundamentalists did with Proctor and Gamble's lovely man in the moon logo?

And if you google "company's satanic symbols" you will find a bunch of holy roller sites dedicated to 'outing' these companies as imps of the antichrist (FFS).

"He has alleged sufficient facts to suggest that the 'Sacred Rain Arrow' image on the standard Oklahoma license plate conveys a particularized message that others are likely to understand and to which he objects." 

I've lived there.  It's one of the more conservative states I've lived in.  

He can say what he want's about it being against his chrisitan beliefs that not the real issue he has.

So do you think he's xenophobic towards Native Americans?
