Ronda Storms Pushing Religious Vanity Plates

Ronda Storms uses her usual heavy-handed touch to push for a religious speciality plate.

Sen. Ronda Storms, R-Valrico, tried to amend onto another bill a plate with the words “I Believe” and a large cross in front of a stained-glass, church-like window.

The proceeds from the plates are to go to religious schools. Thomas Jefferson wrote, "I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church & State." Storms wants to shove her religious idealogy down Floridian's throats.

Storms ideology involves legislative tactlessness. The religious organization failed to submit the proper petitions. Storms said the group should not be held accountable for their own petitions. Storms' amendment did not make it through commitee. That didn't stop her from adding it on the floor.

The amedment was voted down on a voice vote. That means Republicans voted Storms' amendment down, without their votes recorded. Republicans voted against the Christian base to smack Storms down for not following legislative proceedure. The woman has a way with people.
