    WASHINGTON (BP)--In what some are calling a landmark decision that could impact religious monuments across the country, the U.S. Supreme Court Feb. 25 unanimously ruled that a Utah city can keep a Ten Commandments monument in a public park without being required to erect a monument for an unorthodox religious sect.

    Okay, that totally confused me, and I had to read a couple of different news sources to figure that out.

    What the ruling actually was, is that a government is allowed to pick-and-choose, and is not required to erect a monument requested by any/every Tom, Dick, or Harry.

    The original argument was apparently, if the city in question retained its monument of the 10 commandments, then it should have a monument by any/all private organizations requesting such.

    What I find crazy is the hipocracy of our government. In 2003, Chief Justice Roy Moore was removed from office for refusing to comply with federal regulation which violated the 1st Amendment. Judge Moore had every right to refuse to follow federal orders. He didn't back down an inch & for that I respect him.

    What was even crazier is the federal courthouse which was just a few blocks down from where the Alabama state courthouse is has a statue of a goddess of justice. I think that we should have stormed the federal courthouse & tore that statue down.
