    Lol !

    The ruling of a left wing activist judge doesn't change the definition of the words in the Constitution either.

    His ruling will be appealed, as it should be.

    The standard isn't you or some clown activist who's wearing a black robe.

    The standard is the document itself and its meaning is unequivocal.

    Oh, nice try, but tooooooo funny! I'm not the one claiming a belief, I'm looking at it in cold, hard facts; it has no connection to our legal or our governmental system, it is archaic and stupid, and therefore has no place in the public or governmental arena.

    I repeat, if not having a display threatens your faith, you don't have any faith.

    Which further supports my claim that the 10 commandments is strictly for religious preference purposes, and has nothing to do with our laws or our government. Thank you for finally admitting that.

    Wow, that was a real stretch, and I'm not sure how you rationalize that thought process...

    What an inan concept. Not believing in a concept for which there is no supporting evidence does not somehow make it a religion.

    You tell me. I'm not the one making an assertion that not believing in those things for which there is no physical proof is somehow a religion.

    Sure you are. You believe there's no god. Is it your fear of being converted, or is it purely political? Because I never see y'all going after non-Christian symbols.
