Only in Alabama....


Only in Alabama would a judge wear a robe embroidered with the Ten Commandments into court. News story here.

Read a really good response from another local minister, James L. Evans, here.

As Evans says, this judge "replied he believes the Ten Commandments represent the truth 'and you can't divorce the law from the truth.' I guess it's also hard to divorce a sure fire political gimmick from a political opportunist either."

Yet these gimmicks work in this state, and many Alabamians rally to these political opportunists like flies to bear scat.

Does Jesus sit at the right hand of God and vomit over what is done in His name?

    I'm afraid that unless there's a very strict dress code in the courtroom, the judge probably does have a right to wear his special robes. After all, I'm sure he's allowed to wear a cross around his neck.

    I suppose there are limits to this. He couldn't wear a robe that said something like, "if you're black, you may as well plead guilty"

    But if Rehnquist is allowed to wear special "Sgt. Justice" robes, where do you draw the line?



I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
