Taking Offense Of Written Word...
someone made a ruling the other day saying they couldn't keep a copy of the ten comandments in the court room. Seems the ACLU decided it was a matter of church and state, and filed a lawsuit.( I have since discovered the group behind all of it http://www.au.org/site/PageServerthey are the odessa of the world- Lobbyest. they are like PETA- no real person, or officer, just a cubby hole that takes your donation. Membership runs between 25$ to 500 and upward.)cripes.So what is so wrong about telling some one killing, stealing, adultry and coveting what your neighbors had was not acceptable for society. "I didn't know" can now be offered a valid excuse because hey, its out of the schools, so where are they going to learn civilized behavior?In our local court house someone from another state came in and saw they have a large bronze ten comandments plaque posted on the wall when you came in. and they said it offended them and filed suit. well, the courts took a look at it. It had been put in place by the founding fathers and it was the ideals that they had at the time the building was made.so they attacked christmas. The court house had this display of all the religious symbols at the holiday, and they said that offends us, we are not paying tax dollars to have you preach religion at us. take it down.the city looked at it and said, "you got to be kidding."because the display was life size. and it was more of a work of art than religion. it was beautiful. and one of the people who was on the councle said fine, we will remove it... and the people came back two days later and started to scream...they did remove it, and they moved it all across the street into a plaza. and the people threatened to file suit against the city and they said, uh, not on city property, on private property...I was told off that year for saying Merry Christmas. I was told I *had* to say "Happy Sparkle season"and I asked why, and they said it was illegal to say merry christmas.I looked at her. I smiled first amendment says I can say what ever I want and it says you can't tell me not to say it.and by that same right the state can't tell you what faith you can or can not have. So the answer should have been- You know what ACLU?? if the judge sitting on the bench believes in the ten comandments, then he has the LEGAL right to post them in his court room just as he has the right to post a Maplethorp portrate. because by the same constitution gives that judge the right to freedom of speach and the freedom to practice his religion. and if looking at the ten comandments helps him judge fairly, then who are we to say not?a man with a whip up his ass is still a man with a whip up his ass.Kath
