A setback for theocracy

MONTGOMERY, Alabama–Last Monday, US District Judge Myron Thompson ruled that the placement of a Ten Commandments monument in the Alabama state Supreme Court building violated the First Amendment provision against government establishment of religion.


The monument was originally installed by Chief Injustice Roy Moore, who blamed federal court rulings such as those against prayer in public schools for a nation-wide moral decline over the past 50 years.  Yup, those trendsetters in the Supreme Court; if it weren’t for them we’d all be Jerry Falwell.  Eew.


Moore was given 30 days to remove the 5,300-pound slab of rock at his own expense, which hopefully will be quite high. 


But cross-lovers from the Christian Coalition warned that Judge Thompson’s ruling would “seriously erode our religious freedoms, the acknowledgement of God, and the moral foundation of our law.”  What they meant was that his ruling would seriously erode their ability to establish a theocracy, inculcate schoolchildren, and rewrite history.  Isn’t one of the Ten Commandments, “Thou shalt not bear false witness,” or something like that?


At least the Muslims are blatant about wanting to rule the world.  They’d have killed hundreds of people over this already.  Or perhaps violence is what Coalition Director John Giles was alluding to when he said that there was likely to be a “national uprising.”


Bring it on, Johnny-boy.
