Just days after the Orlando senator got his Jesus plates added to a state license plate bill, Siplin is thinking of a less obvious reference to Christ on cars' back ends.
"Not that I don't like the idea," Siplin said, according to tampabay.com. "I mean, I'm proud of Jesus."
Siplin had pushed for the so-called Trinity plate, which would feature Jesus and benefit the Toomey Foundation for the Natural Sciences.
Siplin has apparently decided to scale back on the Jesus imagery on the vanity plates, saying he may opt for a "cross, and some nails and a dove, do the trinity."
But not all in the Florida senate were behind the Trinity tags.
"The issue is whether the state of Florida ought to be producing license plates with religious images on them," said Sen. Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton, "and I don't believe that we should."
Siplin was unfazed by the opposition, saying, "If you don't like that particular license plate, you're not forced to buy it."
Governor Charlie Crist echoed Siplin's sentiments, saying the plates don't really present any church/state separation issue.
"Well if they don't want one, they don't have to buy one," Crist said. "What's it say, 'In God We Trust' on every piece of monetary coins and paper we have. I think it's fine."
