A good decision...

As I've stated many times before, I'm no lawyer, but this is a good decision. At our courthouses, anything that doesn't represent every person in this nation, should NOT be there. I honestly don't really believe that people should swear on the Bible. The courts are the one place in this country where the principle that every person who enters is protected by rights (in which they all believe) must be upheld. To have a display of religious import, any religion, is fundamentally non-inclusive. Witnesses should swear on the Constitution, its really the document that is more applicable and beyond reproach. No other document is needed.

A split Supreme Court struck down Ten Commandments displays in
courthouses Monday, ruling that two exhibits in Kentucky cross the line between
separation of church and state because they promote a religious message.
