So here we go again.
People looking for that Jesus superhero to rescue them from evil have managed to hang a few frames out of their comic book called the Holy Bible in a courtroom in Kentucky. They call these frames "the Ten Commandments".
According to an article from a blog called Church and State:
"A federal court in Lexington, Ky., has ruled that the Ten Commandments can remain on display in the Mercer County courthouse, rejecting an attempt by the American Civil Liberties Union to have them removed.
"'This is a major victory for the people of Mercer County and for all Americans who don't buy into the ACLU's extreme misrepresentation of our Constitution,' said Francis J. Manion, senior counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, which argued the case for the county."
Church and State administrator, Nathan Bradfield, hails the court's decision:
"It simply cannot be stated any clearer than that. Those who would argue that our Founders intended to begin a secular nation with secular documents are living a pipe dream."
He then goes on to say:
"When a person takes an honest the Christian worldview of the Founders, it is not difficult to see Christianity woven into the fabric of our founding documents. Denial of our Christian heritage does not make secularism true and thanks to solid, originalist judges, such as Judge Forrester, we will prevent radical leftists from re-writing our nation's history."
What is it with these people? Do they really believe that some words hanging on a wall are going to stop the Joker and the daily threats we face from the Legion of Doom? Well, hell no they aren't. I mean "Thou shall not kill" is nice and all, but that's what Killer Frost does and unless Jesus Christ plans on coming down here to take her out with some serious crime stopping equipment or at least gets accepted into the Green Lantern Corps, we're in some serious trouble.
I've demanded this before and I'll demand it again- we need to hang the Batsignal over every town in America. Prayer and the Ten Commandments aren't going to stop the Riddler from stealing precious jewelry and leaving riddles around town for us to solve, no! But throw the Batsignal up over all our courthouses and crime will decrease dramatically. It's just plain common sense. Plus, it would show our Justice League heroes in the Watchtower that we are still a DC Comics nation and that we seek their out their guidance and protection everyday of our lives.
Without the Justice League there can be no peace. And if we're going to pin all our hopes on someone who's only superpowers are walking on water, offering forgiveness, and turning water into wine then we might as well stick a crown on Gorilla Grodd's head and wave the Legion of Doom's flag over top of the White House.
We must pray daily that the Martian Manhunter will help our federal judges to make better decisions in the future.
