Great story out of Toronto: An ordained United Church minister named Joanne Sorrill wanted to get a personalized Ontario license plate that read REV JO. But this was rejected by the authorities on the grounds that it might promote dangerous driving. So instead, she opted for the full-blown REVRNDJO. But this, too, was rejected because the ministry was scared it might signal a preference for Christianity over other religions.
I wonder if they would have come down the same way if the plate had read, say, MRSMULLAH?
