Commandment Fever!

Missing the point entirely — which is hardly unusual — Christian groups such as Washington-based Christian Defense Coalition are planning to install 100 Ten Commandments monuments, bringing the total to 1,000 commandments within a year following the Supreme Court’s ruling that non-religion-promoting religious displays do not violate the constitution.
Without actually reading anything or listening to anyone or, like, paying attention, the Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney said, “We see this as an historic opening, and we’re going to pursue it aggressively,” misunderstanding entirely that the single fact that they’re trying to promote Christianity with Christian monuments violates the very ruling they think allows them to do so, but whatever.
There are more than a few church-and-state issues left on the Sup’s docket, but they’ve called it quits until October. So we won’t find out whether, as one young Floridian wondered on her school mural before she was ordered to remove it, resulting in her suit against her school — “Jesus has time for you; do you have time for Him?”
Uh, no, actually, I don’t. But thanks for asking!
