South Carolina Gets Enough Orders to Make Religious Car Tags

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina's Department of Motor Vehicles says it has enough paid orders to begin making Christian-themed license plates despite a lawsuit challenging the move.

Agency spokeswoman Beth Parks says it took less than three days
to get 400 people to order and pay $5 to cover the additional cost of making the plates.

They depict a stained-glass window with a cross and the words "I Believe" written on top.

Parks says the license plates should be available in about a month.

Legislators passed a law authorizing them this year.

Americans United for Separation of Church and State sued South Carolina officials, contending that the plates amount to state sponsorship of a particular faith.
