A Florida program which allows you to design custom license plates is set to get another two designs that are already causing controversy. The two new designs are Christian-themed, one featuring a cross in front a stained-glass window and the other an image of Jesus Christ in a position that most resembles him on the cross.
A similar bill has passed in South Carolina, but a federal judge has halted production while the constitutionality of the license plates is adjudicated.
Floria Governor Charlie Crist was asked about the whether this violates the separation between church and state. He responded, "If they don't want one they don't have to buy one."
