A US federal judge has ordered South Carolina not to issue cross-adorned "I Believe" number plates, ruling it violates the constitutional separation of church and state.
US District Judge Cameron Currie ruled on Tuesday that the state legislature - which last year voted unanimously to approve the number plates that also include a cross in front of a stained glass window - had clearly given favoured government treatment to a single faith in violation of the constitution.

The dollar, and coinage of the United States is NOT an American product. It is produce and purchased (leased, actually) from the private banking cartel known locally as the Federal Reserve.

Has the legislature denied any other 'religious' tags, whose organizations met the qualifications? I haven't found any information stating that is the case. Only allowing the cross, and denying others would be favoritism, but that does not seem to be the case.

However... when the US dollar has "In God We Trust" printed on it, then isn't that clearly a link between church and state?
The double standards of allowing God to appear on the currency, but to not allow other icons to appear on number plates is crazy.
I spoke too soon, there is a secularist plate. Guess they just don't believe in equal protection.
