USSC or Bust

The US Appeals Court, District 6 affirmed the following today:

A U.S. appeals court today upheld the decision of a lower court in allowing the inclusion of the Ten Commandments in a courthouse display, hammering the American Civil Liberties Union and declaring, "The First Amendment does not demand a wall of separation between church and state."

Attorneys from the American Center for Law and Justice successfully argued the case on behalf of Mercer County, Ky., and a display of historical documents placed in the county courthouse. The panel voted 3-0 to reject the ACLU's contention the display violated the Establishment Clause of the Constitution.

I'll just bet the ACLU left skid marks on its way to filing an appeal to the US Supreme Court.

Perhaps we'll get a decision now on the long abused "separation of church and state" argument, as well as the misrepresentation of what the Constitution says about religion.

Hey, ACLU et al, it is "freedom of religion" not "freedom from religion" and like it or not, your secularism is your religion, and I for one am tired of you cramming it down my throat.

And while the USSC is at it, it would be nice if they define what a religion is so we can stop treating Islam as a religion, but that is a whole other matter entirely.
