Sometimes the Supremes get it right
This may be a no-brainer, but with wingnut control of our government and the Supreme Court, one can never take these things for granted:
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected an appeal by Kentucky of a ruling that barred the display of a large granite monument with the Ten Commandments on the state Capitol grounds in Frankfort.What's kind of funny is that Kentucky (along with Alabama, Indiana, Mississippi, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas and Utah) argued the display should've been permitted as a "historical document". This from a six-foot tall monument with the caption "I AM the LORD thy God".
And these are the same guys that are pontificating against an Islamic Republic of Iraq. A secular Iraq is obviously a good thing, mind you, but the irony is lost on the GOPers.
Secularism is also good at home.Posted April 28, 2003 07:35 AM | Comments (24)
