And when you need another eye-rolling dose of Scripture-inspired wingnuttery, well, you know just where to go:
Judge Says Ten Commandments Can Stay
A Ten Commandments monument that has stood on the courthouse lawn for almost 50 years does not promote religion and can remain in place, a federal judge ruled.
U.S. District Judge James Carr said Tuesday that the monument can stay because the motives for placing it outside the Lucas County courthouse were secular and not an endorsement of a specific belief.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio sued Lucas County in 2002 to have the display removed, saying it was unconstitutional and promoted religion.
To recap, then, leaving a Ten Commandments monument where it is is eminently reasonable since such a monument in no way promotes a particular religious belief. On the other hand, suggesting that such a monument be removed from the public arena is, of course, a disgusting, appalling and sickening attack on Christianity by immoral, Godless atheists.
Coming soon: how biological evolution has a scientific obligation to prove every single stage of evolutionary development over all of planetary history down to the smallest detail while, on the other hand, God simply works in mysterious ways.
AWWWWWW, THAT'S SO CUTE: Poor Jinx apparently doesn't like folks linking to him and pointing out his overwhelming wingnuttery, so he subtlely changed the URL of that piece to cause my original link to fail. No worries -- it's been fixed. Go. Enjoy the wankery.
the motives for placing it outside the Lucas County courthouse were secular and not an endorsement of a specific belief.
So if I, in a secularly motivated way, decided to quote verses form say...the Satanic Bible and made a monument to that somewhere, that'd be okay too because it wouldn't actually be "an endorsement of a specific belief"? Good to know!
