1st Amendment jerk, read it, understand it's principal, then STFU...

Aren't these the same people that want the constitution changed?

HeadacheDon't pay the ACLU a dime.
ACLU is not getting any money from the fine, are you that ignorant as to how the justice system works? Don't answer! The rest of your ramblings clearly show you ARE ignorant.
What is it about separation of state and church that you don't understand?
For your benefit, I've decided to include the text of Article 11 of the Treaty of Tripoli
Art. 11. As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

24hr shifts? As someone who has stayed awake for 24 hours regularly I can vouch that that isn't really a feasible shift length if you want your armed patriots to be efficient guards.
Then again given that by "armed patriot" you seem to mean "mindless lunatic with a gun" I guess you can have some leeway.

There are only 3 or 4 pertinent to law and order in the real world.
Tell you what, knucklehead: You try to enforce the first three in a real American city and you will know, first hand, the meaning of 'terrified'.

"Don't pay the ACLU a dime."
I'm pretty sure the ACLU doesn't fine anyone. Actually I'm totally sure of that, as they have no power to actually, you know fine any person or organization.
"Send the ACLU a copy of the Constitution, then call on armed patriotic Americans to stand guard in 24 hour shifts around both courthouses."
I'm VERY sure the ACLU has numerous copies of the Constitution as their goal is to protect if for EVERYBODY. Yes, by all means let Jethro and Zeke take their rabbit guns and stand guard at the courthouse, but then there's that pesky thing about this being a nation of laws and RELIGIOUS FREEDOM (which also includes being free FROM retard religion).
"I'm so sick of this abuse of my country by these simple-minded liberals who get so terrified at the thought of seeing the Ten Commandments."
My IQ is obviously greater than your whole family's combined, so don't even go there, Jebediah. But tell me, what do the 10 Suggestions have to do with law, except for the 20 percent of them that actually ARE laws? Making the other 8 superfulous to this discussion.

You keep the Constitution. You obviously haven't read it.
Nobody's scared of the Ten Commandments; we just think they're bullshit with no relevance to U.S. law.
I live in Kentucky, and I have to say I doubt the yahoos in Pulaski and McCreary counties came up with this themselves. They're too busy smoking pot and fucking their sisters. (I've been through both counties to visit relatives.) It's right-wingers' old bugbear, "outside agitators" trying to make up a test case, knowing they can always find some dipshit gullible enough to hand Yahweh's laundry list on a courthouse here. Then they can litigate it without running any risk themselves.

Someone send WarGamer a copy of the US Constitution. He'll need to read it before he spouts off about it...oh crap, he's already spouted off about it. Oh well, send it anyway, perhaps while reading it to find the part that agrees with his pov he'll actually learn something. (Don't hold your breath though).
3/20/2009 12:15:07 PM
It's not fear of seeing them. I don't care about their being on any PRIVATE property. The presence of displays of the 10 commandments in courthouses (government/public property) is, however, a violation of the establishment clause of the first amendment to that constitution you want the ACLU to read (may I suggest you read it yourself?). Basically it comes down to all or nothing. There's not room or money to put a monument or display for each and every religion, so it's best not to have any displays at all. That's all.
3/20/2009 12:15:56 PM
For somebody who appears to worship the Constitution, you sure as hell don't seem to understand it.

I'm thinking WarMonger is more likely to wipe his ass with the Constitution than read it. I hear that Sears catalog is kind of rough.

And these "armed patriotic Americans" would do what, shoot unarmed patriotic Americans who object to using public monies and public properties to display religious materials?
You seem particularly under-qulified to be judging who is and who isn't simple-minded, except by the 3rd grade criterion of "takes one to know one."
3/20/2009 12:23:31 PM
ACLU is the best when it comes to constitutional law. Try reading the bill of rights. Preferably now.
Also, do you really want to get SWAT up your sorry ass?
3/20/2009 12:25:12 PM
Why do they want/need the 10 Commandments posted all over the place anyway?
-Can you not remember them? There are only 10. I had to memorize them as a kid, it's not that hard.
-You can't live a good life and know right from wrong without reading them each day? (Although only 2 have any real meaning as far as I'm concerned)
-If you can't possibly get through a day without seeing them, open your Bible or walk into church. That's where they belong and that's where they need to stay. You are free to do either of those things all day as much as you want, without bothering the rest of us.

Welcome to the 21st Century, Kentucky!
3/20/2009 12:29:00 PM
Which group would be crying if posted along side were the satanic commandments (if there are any), or the 99 names of Allah, or sayings from the Bhagavad Gita.
These fundie assholes would be cring like the wimps they are.

3/20/2009 12:57:26 PM
The ACLU exists to protect the Constitution from bumwipes like you.
3/20/2009 1:05:03 PM
How come you never see supposed Christians demanding for the sermon on the mount to be posted in public? Surely the fundies could get behind the whole thing about the meek, merciful peacemakers, right?
3/20/2009 1:18:34 PM
I'm from RaptureReady, and I'm outraged about stuff! Blah blah blah!
3/20/2009 1:28:08 PM
How about we send you the Constitution, since it's clear you've never read it?
3/20/2009 1:49:21 PM
Then they will send in a SWAT team and/or the FBI and/or National Guard and/or ATF. And you will get to experience all the charms of a federal penitentiary. Do try it, please, I could use something interesting to watch on CNN for a few hours.

I'd just like to say we're not all a bunch of bible thumping jackasses in Ky.
