So the issue isn't solved. There will still be bitter confusion about what courthouses can and can't display. You know, who really cares if the Commandments are up? It's not like they aren't good laws to live by, for the most part. I mean, things like lying and stealing are generally bad (unless you're a gop.) I do think, however, that if you are going to put them up, you should also put up other facets of our legal history, like the Magna Carta, Roman Law, British Common Law, Hammurabi Code, you know, the non-religious laws that provide more of a basis for our laws than a bunch of words carved into stones that were subsequently broken when a guy threw a tantrum. (Ooh, blasphemy! My apologies.)
“The Court’s second-guessing of the hidden purposes of the Kentucky commissioners smacks of judicial tyranny,” said Crampton. “The Court has tightened its grip on every aspect of our lives. These five unelected people in black robes are not declaring law; they are arbitrarily setting social policy for the entire country,” Crampton continued. “The Court missed a tremendous opportunity.”

“We are obviously pleased with the Court’s upholding of the monument in Texas,” Crampton said. “But the fractured nature of the opinion loudly underscores the utter lack of any clear rule of law in these matters,” Crampton noted.
Read the American Family Association's press release. Nothing is good enough for them except full fledged theocracy. Can't they all just move to Kansas?
