COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A federal judge says South Carolina must stop marketing and making licenses plates that feature the image of a cross and the words "I Believe."

A federal judge issued a temporary injunction during a court hearing Thursday after opponents said the plates violate the separation of church and state.

"I think our arguments were very strong, our viewpoints were very valid. And we kind of look forward to the opposition's response to that. More material to work with. We feel really good about what's happened today," said Rev. Thomas Summers of of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, which opposed the plates.

In court, an attorney for the Washington-based group said state lawmakers had approved what she called a "uniquely Christian" license plate, one that violates the constitution's Establishment Clause against state sponsorship of religion.
