court rules on "I Believe Plate"

From an American's United press release:

FEDERAL DISTRICT COURT RULES AGAINST SOUTH CAROLINA’S ‘CHRISTIAN’ LICENSE PLATE

Americans United Says Decision Reminds Officials Of Their Duty To Uphold Separation Of Church And State A federal district court ruled today that a special Christian license plate mandated by the South Carolina legislature violates the constitutional separation of church and state.

U.S. District Judge Cameron McGowan Currie held that the plate, which was to feature a large yellow cross, a stained-glass window and the words “I Believe,” clearly gives favored government treatment to one faith. In a summary judgment ruling, she ordered state officials not to issue the plate.

Thanks AU!!
