"Separate" this ...

From today's USA Today:

"A federal judge has permanently barred a Kentucky county from using the Ten Commandments as part of a 'Foundations of American Law and Government' display.

"U.S. District Judge Joseph H. McKinley said the Grayson County display has the 'effect of endorsing religion.'"

Leaving aside the fact that a frieze in the U.S. Supreme Court building shows Moses receiving the Ten Commandments, I'd like to know where Judge McKinley found the words "endorsing religion" in the U.S. Constitution.

Over the past fifty years, our federal judiciary - prodded by the ACLU and other leftist outfits - has perpetuated the myth that the concept of a complete separation of church and state appears in the Constitution. Using this myth as a guide, all forms of religious expression are slowly being stripped from the public square. This is something the Founding Fathers clearly did not envision.

Anyone who's actually read the First Amendment knows that Congress - say again, Congress - is prohibited from establishing a religion. I'd like to know how the display of a copy of the Ten Commandments in a county courthouse in Kentucky equals an establishment of a national religion ...!

The fact that a sitting federal judge so completely misunderstands the First and Tenth Amendments to our Constitution is bad enough. Knowing that such a judge in Heartland Kentucky a county can dictate what can and cannot be displayed on local courthouse walls should send a chill up the spine of all liberty-lovin' Americans.

Thomas Jefferson, who said, "If our nation be destroyed, it will be from the judiciary," is starting to look like a prophet, indeed
