After FFRF complains, religious stickers disappear from Columbus BMV

A Columbus, Ohio resident informed FFRF that several religious mottos were clearly displayed in the local Bureau of Motor Vehicles, including a bumper sticker reading, “If my people would pray and humble themselves,” and a poster quoting Jesus saying, “Do unto others as you’d have done to you.”

On February 15th, 2011, FFRF Staff Attorney, Patrick Elliott, informed the Bureau, “The display of religiously themed materials in the Columbus BMV branch cannot withstand constitutional scrutiny, as the purpose for the display is religious in nature and the display constitutes government endorsement of religion.”

The BMV did not officially respond to the letter, but the complainant confirmed that they had since visited the branch and the religious-themed displays had been removed.
