License plates with crosses in North Carolina

South Carolina will make available license plates with crosses (see it here). I think that’s a great idea because it gives people an expression of faith.

The infamous American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) opposes the idea because they say it’s a union between church and state. However, the ACLU, and the Governor, is confused with what they believe is a union between church and state. I think they should really get a history lesson on what union of church and state really was.

A separation of church and state is what we evangelical-protestant Christians fought for. If we did not have a separation of church and state, evangelicals and most protestant churches would not be allowed to exist. We would be oppressed by the rulers and by the official church. It is ironic that when evangelicals express our religious beliefs today, we get accused by groups like the ACLU of mixing church and state. So thank God for good Christian organizations like the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) who try to correct the ignorance and tragedies that are allowed to happen in our public arena.

A union between church and state is actually what we had when the Roman Catholic Church was still organically joined with the state. Today, there is no such thing. Individuals who are Christians, of any denomination, have every right to freely express their religious beliefs anytime and anywhere, including government, schools, and any public organization. This is true freedom of religion.

  1. Either a State representative or senator has proposed making these tags available here in Alabama. We’ll see how it turns out.
