Re: Aztec License Plates in Nevada
Recently, I was driving home from a grocery store in Summerlin, Nevada, an affluent Las Vegas suburb.
Why would the symbol of an ancient people from a foreign country be portrayed on a Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles-issued license plate in conjunction with a citizenship theme?
The Statue of Liberty is the most recognized symbol of new citizenship to most Americans. Wouldn't the Statue of Liberty be more appropriate?
Also, it could be argued that the Aztec calendar stone is religious symbol. Are religious symbols now permitted on government issued license plates? Are there any Nevada license plates that display Catholic crucifixes or the Hebrew Star of David?
