‘I Believe’ License Plate Contested…Duh

Group files suit over ‘I Believe’ plates in SC
Group files lawsuit to prevent South Carolina from creating ‘I Believe’ license plates

This is the headline from Newsweek magazine For June 19th. 2008 Here

A group that advocates separation of church and state has filed a lawsuit to stop the state of South Carolina from issuing a Christian ‘I Believe’ license plate, complete with a Christian Cross and stained glass window insignia.

The group asserts (rightly) that the government is endorsing a particular religion, and that is prohibited by the US constitutions first amendment. Well, we have already lost, or completely run over, some other amendments, (4-5-6- 8) courtesy of GW Bush, what’s one more?

The groups executive director, the Rev. Barry Lynn said: “I do believe these ’I Believe’ plates will not see the light of day because the courts, I’m confident, will see through this”

Americans United for Separation of Church and State, a Washington, DC based group filed the suit on behalf of the Hindu American Foundation, a South Carolina rabbi, a Humanist pastor, and two Christian ministers.

Gee, who could have seen this lawsuit coming?
