Upside down pentagram license plate proposed by Donna Rowland


Donna Rowland, a Republican lawmaker from Murfreesboro, recently proposed putting the Christian fish symbol on Tennessee license plates. Soon after, it was brought to her attention that it is not considered proper for the state to sanction religion. Rather than back down on her request for a Christian symbol, she has proposed that the upside down pentagram license plate be offered as an alternative. With each license plate purchased, a donation goes to a specific charity. According to Rowland’s proposal, each fish license plate will result in a donation to the Republican party. For each pentagram plate, a donation will be made to the Church of Scientology. “This isn’t state-sanctioned religion, it’s just using legally mandated items to advertise religion. That’s completely different.” says Rowland.
