Supreme Court Bars Oldest Legal Document From Being Displayed At Courthouses

While sitting in a court room that featured an engraving of Moses holding the Ten Commandments, the Supreme Court, in yet another 5-4 decision, decided that other courthouses in the United States were not allowed to display the world's oldest legal document. Why, because the Commandments are associated with religion and in this country, anything having to do with religion must be removed from sight.

They said that putting up the Ten Commandments in a courtroom establishes religion. Of course, they didn't specify which religion. Surely it isn't Catholicism or any mainline Protestant denomination, since they are all free from the Law. Maybe it is Judaism. Who knows?

Well at least they didn't bar the display in all public places.
