A few new Texas license plates will be carrying a strong Christian message. New Calvary Hill license plates are available in Texas, now in the middle of Lent.
FORT WORTH, TX (Catholic Online) - A part of the $55 annual fee for the new license plate goes to Glory Gang, an East Texas group that helps children at risk.
MyPlates.com has put over $9 million into state coffers since producing and selling specialty plates in 2009.
"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. "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."
