do they blatantly not read the news? are they not familiar with West Cranston, RI? did they see how much money it cost them? do they not know that it is a certainty that they will lose? are they that hell bent to hope to be proven right that they will bankrupt their municipality? how can they think that THE 10 COMMANDMENTS is not religious?
you would think that they would get it through their thick skulls that as soon as a lawsuit is threatened, rather than getting their backs up, they would humbly say "ok, you got us. it was fun while it lasted but oh well, that's the law, what are you gonna do?"
nope, they never, ever, ever, ever learn. and they wonder why non-believers find them stupid.
I never understand the response! Ridick! I can see why the xians want the ten commandments around. Because nothing gets kids attention like a bunch of rules on a monument.
so true! while i'm at it i want to thank you for your truly kind post on my RR Live Blog.
i wonder if it's time for the Supreme Court to once again clarify what the 1st Amendment is all about. there seems to be so much confusion on the topic, in so many different settings. just read the comment section on any such article and you'll get 20 different interpretations of 1st Amendment, the Establishment Clause, Freedom of/from Religion, etc.
regardless, the precedents are quite clear in a case like this. the school district will lose and be ass out a boatload of money. i hope it's worth it to them. ultimately, it will serve to continue the divide between Atheists and the Religious, which is unfortunate.
Nope. They never will learn. And this is why. They ARE stupid.
You are right booklover. That's what I was gonna say.
These people don't care about the 1st Amendment so clarifying it is useless. Sue them.
My mom asked me what I wanted for my birthday next month. I will be OLD. 45, lol. She is a Member of the Freedom From Religion Foundation in Madison, WI. I told her I want to be a member there too! :)
Yes, "redistribute" that "wealth" to the ACLU, …and keep it out of the collection plates.
" and they wonder why non-believers find them stupid. "
Oh I have a long list of their actions and notions that place them in stupid bucket. The pissing and moaning about the 10 commandments is just one of many of their departures from rational thought. If any of them actually lived by their rules they might have some credibility - not much but some.
