FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Some new Texas license plates will carry a strong Christian message. Here in the middle of Lent, new Calvary Hill license plates are available in Texas.
“The image on the plate is three cross; the inscription on the bottom, is ‘One State Under God,’” said Kim Drummond, spokeswoman for MyPlates.com.
Part of the $55 annual fee for the new plate goes to Glory Gang, an East Texas group that helps at-risk children. She doesn’t expect a strong backlash to the religious theme.
“It doesn’t mean they’re advocating for a group; it simply means they recognize there is a group in Texas that would enjoy this plate,” Drummond said.
MyPlates.com has put more than $9 million into state coffers since it began selling specialty plates in 2009. Here’s a test plate with CBSDFW insignia on it:
