vol, Please show me where I have "pulled things and contorted them?" Rather than attacking the messanger, please argue the points I've made in my posts. Thank you.
The reason that they don't want the ten commandments in the courtroom is that it creates a hostile work environment for the judges and lawyers. "thou shall not commit adultery". "thou shall not bear false witness...".
I will assume your statement was made with tongue in cheek. Before this became an issue I doubt that anyone gave the posting of the commandments a second thought. What we are seeing now in this country is a war between the religious and the secular. Religion as it has through the ages causing friction and divisiveness. A war that is being fed by our present resident of the oval office. Preacher George.
