Ignored story of the week

ACLU not representative of "reasonable" people

The 6th circuit court of appeals ruled in favor of a historical documents display that included the 10 Commandments. The court ruled against the ACLU, and went further by mocking the group and it's intentions.

Judge Richard Suhrheinrich's ruling said the ACLU brought "tiresome" arguments about the "wall of separation" between church and state, and it said the organization does not represent a "reasonable person."


He criticized the organization for arguing that the First Amendment mandates a "wall of separation between church and state."

"Our nation's history is full of governmental acknowledgment and in some cases accommodation of religion," the judge wrote.

Excellent ruling. Along with a great loss to the ACLU it's good to see that some judges are able to understand the lack of the "separation of church and state" in the establishment clause.

Of course, don't plan on reading or hearing about this... anywhere.
