WILL REAR ENDING SOMEONE IN FLORIDA OR NORTH CAROLINA BECOME BLASPHEMY?

CHARLESTON POST & COURIER The cross could soon grace a state specialty license plate. But if the Legislature endorses the new plate, which would say "I Believe" across the bottom and carry the image of a cross in front of a stained-glass window, the state could end up in court. The bill received key approval in the House with a 109-0 vote. A change from the Senate version will send it back to that body before it could go to Gov. Mark Sanford's desk. . .

Marc Stern, general counsel for the New York-based American Jewish Congress, wrote Sanford a letter and urged him to veto the legislation creating the "I Believe" tag on the grounds that it is unconstitutional. Stern said that if the bill becomes law, his group would be prepared to take South Carolina to court.

Florida is also considering such a license plate
