Florida and South Carolina are about to go into court (of course) about their new license plates. One is the sort of thing I’d expect from the Protestant Bible belt, with a cross. The other is [part of] a crucifix, which I learned to be a distinctly Catholic image eschewed by Protestants since, oh, Martin Luther’s day (idolatry issues, and inconsistent with Christ’s resurrection). Oddly, there’s been no discussion I can find about this distinction, nor any objection in either state to a Christian license plate being a Catholic one, and widespread reference in print to the one with the cross as a crucifix. Is this a win for ecumenical reconciliation, or what?
