A NATION DIVIDED: The South Carolina legislature has approved the production of license plates featuring a cross and the words "I believe." It is the first state in the nation to approve a plate with a reference to one religion. The Lieutenant Governor of South Carolina spearheaded the effort and says while he would support other religions symbols on state plates, he believes the United States is a Christian nation, and that Christians shouldn't always back down to "separation of church and state types." And yes, those "types" have filed a federal lawsuit against the state saying this is a violation of the nation's constitution. You can read Jeffrey Toobin’s blog.
