    and yes, they should have removed the ten commandments.
    As was said, it was just an analogy. but if ya don't like that one here's another one: It's a relational one. I have a father. I have a son. I also have a brother. I am all three at the same time.

    The Ten Commandments don't belong on public buildings, or as installed monuments, ESPECIALLY in courthouses. I am an atheist, and if I go to court, and there's a big 10C monument there admonishing me to have NO GOD BEFORE the Christian god, and that was put there by the judge that I'm facing, then I'd feel I wasn't getting unbiased justice. In fact, I'd be violating a couple of the Commandments just because of my beliefs. I don't want the government or courts telling me I can't worship any other god, or idols, or make graven images, or a bunch of other stuff that's patently false for non-Christians.

    Having said that, it's ONLY public/government buildings where I have any objections. I believe people should have the widest possible latitude to follow any of their beliefs, religious, philosophical, or whim-based, and they should be respected by all.

    Jim, that was a nice analogy.

    April, we're packing too. I'm bringing a lap top this time. Pick up your phone in 5 minutes.
