Countdown to the Lawsuit

The Ten Commandments can be posted now. Let’s put up a pool on how long before the ACLU files suit once the governor signs the bill.

The state Senate passed a bill authorizing county governments to display the Ten Commandments as part of a display of historic documents.

The Senate performed radical surgery on House Bill 941, which originally included the text of a specific version of the Ten Commandments, along with The Mayflower Compact and the Declaration of Independence.

The version the Senate passed authorizes a display of nine historical documents, among them the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights, the preamble to the Georgia Constitution and the lyrics of “The Star-Spangled Banner.

    Are any of you folks even slightly aware that between a Jewish Bible and any version of the King James Version there is a pretty significant difference in what the Commandments actually say?

  2. Bill Simon says:

    Frankly, I hope the ACLU files as soon as some courthouse posts-up the Commandments.

    Erick, what is your obsession with using state/county government to prosleytize your religious beliefs?

    Bill, perhaps your constant hyperbole has gotten the better of you.

    If you check the archives you’ll see that my first post on the subject was against this legislation and I haven’t changed my mind.

    Sometimes we’re not out to get you. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got take a Bible to the heretic next door before he burns in hell.

    Erick, I don’t have the time to check everyone’s history of how they feel about a subject. You made the staement “wonder how long befoe the ACLU files a lawsuit”…that implies you think the ACLU would be wrong if it did file.
