Religious license plates for sale in SCReligious license plates for sale in SC; group who sued over 'I Believe' plates says these OK
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) ' South Carolina drivers can buy religious license plates that feature three crosses and a sunrise.
A federal judge ruled in 2009 that "I Believe" tags that legislators created with a state law violated the First Amendment ban on establishment of religion by government. These new tags were not created by a state law. Instead, they were created and sponsored by the nonprofit group www.IBELIEVEsc.net.
Nonprofit spokeswoman Adrian Grimes says the new tag is a nonpolitical way for Christians of all denominations to share their faith.
Americans United for Separation of Church and State sued over the 2008 law. A spokesman says the group sees no constitutional problem with these plates.
