So tell me if I am not surprised by this? But it's okay to ask for other things that not Christan to be removed? They are Limited thier own free will by thier own actions and are not willing to pay the price of sacraficing thier beliefs..

I am not just talking about Christans I am talking about everyone. Get over it! Everyone will have thier beliefs. So why can't you just deal with it?

I think that they should remove the giant 10 commandments thing from the judicial building. Its a public building, the guy who put it in is owned by the public. Is the public all Christian? No, they aren't. We're Jewish, and Pagan, and Aetheist, and "other."

'sides, I thought church and state were supposed to remain separate.

just my thoughts.

yup. I think they should hang tenants from the Torah, and the Koran, and the Wiccan Rede right next to it, if he wants to leave it, right?

The separation of church and state was never intended to be used in the manner that it is today. The forefathers put it into place in order to prevent the forming of a National Religion, and any possible forceful adherence to it, as they had suffered in Merry Ol' England.

Personally, I think that both sides (christian and non) push the issue way too much...I think the 10 Commandments have just as much right in a house of justice (they ARE decent guidelines for life, regardless of who wrote them) as a statue of Justice herself does. Both are religious symbols, one's just a dead religion...

And for the record, I'm a 'nothing' when it comes to religion, as in that's what I believe in, nothing.

Either way, it's decided. Supreme Court said that it isn't touching the case with a ten foot pole, and the other alabama justices are holding Moore in contempt.

Go, Due Process!

Well I was there
I was actually in Montgomery while this all started this mans predidsor Jerry Falwell was responsible for actually placing the ten commandments there as well as instating "Good Christian Ethics" into the state law. Things like consecutive overturn of gay rights and a court decision in custody case where the father had filed for custody of his children from there mother after she had moved to LA because she was an unfit parent based on the fact that she was living with her lesbian lover. The outcome was for the father, the papers motioned that although he didn't currently have a job the judge felt that the children would have a better upbringing in a has with strong Christian values. There was no mention of the children's wishes nor of the living conditions in either place. The papers supported the judges decision as some sort of big win over corrupt people. Well that's Alabama for you.

1: Because there's the one true God!
2: No! We believe there's the one true God, the son, and the Holy Ghost!
3: Screw both of you! It's all about Jesus, baby!
4: ...where's the Allah booth?

Religion is a crazy, crazy, crazy thing -_-
