Jesus: Not Coming to a License Plate Near You?

The Florida Legislature, while unable to pass a budget as of yet, has spent considerable time debating specialty license plate, specifically ones featuring the images of Jesus Christ, Sen. Al Lawson and promoting The Holy Trinity.  Lawson has now dropped his proposal and it appears that the image of Christ will not appear on Florida license plates either after the Senate adopted an amendment stating that “”the plate shall not include any religious image.”  The Senate paused after individuals Senators expressed concern over the possibility of future proposals, including Sen. Larcenia Bullard’s concern that she would have to vote on a “devil” license plate with “horns on it.”

With over 100 specialty plates currently in production, perhaps its time for Florida to take a breather on creating new ones for a few years.  Sound reasonable enough?
