Ten Commandments Backed by Bush Administration in Court Fight. Guess the administration has nothing better to do except carry water for folks like Judge Roy Moore (yes, another dumbass Alabaman — it never ends) that don’t understand the concept of the separation of church and state. This particular fight is over framed copies of the Big 10 in a Kentucky courthouse. (Bloomberg):
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.
“Official acknowledgement and recognition of the Ten Commandments’ influence on American legal history comport with the Establishment Clause,” the administration argued in a brief filed with the court in Washington.
