    Ok now that I have heard all the arguments, my only real problem is this.
    Who woke up one day after 200 years and decided this was a problem?
    That was the real question I had. It does not really matter what your point of
    view is. These things are posted all over the south in many court rooms, and I
    look at as nothing more then a piece of our nations history. I make the
    argument that the only reason the stone is gone is becuase some jerk off group
    had a beef with the Judge, or it's just a way to get a Bush, becuase they know
    he'e a christian.
    I think the judge was wrong to try and stop it, but I also think the ruling had
    no leagle basis. That is my opinion.

    Religion, only one mention of God here:
    1 a : the state of a religious <a nun in her 20th year of religion> b (1) : the
    service and worship of God or the supernatural (2) : commitment or devotion to
    religious faith or observance
    2 : a personal set or institutionalized system of religious attitudes, beliefs,
    and practices
    3 : archaic : scrupulous conformity : CONSCIENTIOUSNESS
    4 : a cause, principle, or system of beliefs held to with ardor and faith
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    I don't know who it was that woke up and decided we have a problem with the big
    10 or any "religious" artifacts or practices. Whoever it was should have slept
    in that day ; - )
    Could have been an atheist fanatic, there are fanatics in all "religious"
    organizations and I still say atheism could be characterized as a religion (see
    definition #4 above).
    It's a shame what is happening in our society today, I mean come on, pretty
    soon Santa Claus will be absent from
    Christmas or should I say "The Holiday Season" geeeesh...

    Happy Labor Day.

  5. If atheism could be categorized as a religion quite a few would have started
    "atheist churches" and take advantage of the tax exempt status by now. Maybe
    they already have for all I know :)
    In practical usage, despite that quite liberal dictionary definition
    (dictionaries can be wrong and written with an agenda btw) atheism is the
    opposite of religion; with god vs. without god. As we all know fanatics do
    not define religions; Fanatics take whatever small part of a scripture or
    ideology or cause fits their personal agenda and cause a lot of trouble. I
    think we are seeing rabble rousing fanatics on both sides of this issue in
    Alabama and everyone will grow tired of it quickly. It was not a serious
    challenge to the first amendment.

    There will always be this testing of the first amendment. It is an
    unbelievably clever wording of a law. It invites the constant examination
    and thwarts every attempt at encroachment from either side. There have been
    periods in American history where religion is very prevalent in government
    and now there is a period where it is being moved back the other way. It
    will swing back the other way at some point. I think the cause of this
    present shift is the public's lack of trust in religions in general over
    the last thirty years. Everything from the 9/11 suicide fanatics, to the
    Catholic priest molesters, to Jimmy Swaggart and Jim Baker. to Jim Jones.

    The founding fathers were not very interested in making religion a part of
    the government. Religion was already established but democracy was not. They
    were concerned with forging a new form of government that protected freedom
    from tyrants, including religous tyrants from whom they and their immediate
    ancestors had only recently escaped.

    (snip snip and more snip)

    after literally hundreds of postings telling you why the ruling was
    completely legal and the posting of the commandments unconstitutional,
    I fail to see how you can say the had no legal basis.

    you just don't want to change how and what you believe.

    They have. A guy I know did it for crying out loud! There have to
    be many more! He thought it was a wonderful tax scam. There are
    certain requirements, but they are pretty simple. You have to
    have so many meetings a year (no not every week!) And a couple
    of other things. But nothing hard to handle. The church of
    the swimming elephant may become official yet!
