The religious right is at it again (like they ever stop). Last week it was the ban on gay marriage, which they ramped up by adding pleas to prevent gays from adopting, foster care, or holding any position of authority over children (teaching, daycare, etc.). This week it’s the Ten Commandments in the courtroom or on the courthouse lawn. Everybody else has covered all the arguments in detail, except one: why do we need the commandments posted at court, or any government building, or anyplace at all except church? Before they launch into the arguments of whether or not it is a veiled attempt to promote one religion over another (it is) and whether or not it’s actually harmful to anyone (it isn’t), I think they should first explain why the courts need to spend taxpayer money to post the rules of the currently popular religion, rules which are mostly unenforceable under the U.S. legal system.
That’s just my quick opinion. Kill the hypocrites. Hang the pope. Put Mountain Dew in every drink machine. Long live metal!
