Theocracy Rising


Dec. 8 (Bloomberg) -- The Bush administration, saying that religion ``has played a defining role'' in the nation's history, urged the U.S. Supreme Court to permit Ten Commandments displays in courthouses.

The Justice Department today filed a brief supporting two Kentucky counties accused of violating the constitutional ban on government establishment of religion by posting framed copies of the Ten Commandments.

I wish the fine Christians who support this stuff would get their heads out of their asses long enough to realize that different denominations embrace different versions of the Ten Commandments.
