Hermitifying

77% of survey respondents oppose removal of the 10 commandments from Alabama’s state judicial building.

This is deeply troubling. The monument is so clearly misplaced. While I disagree with those who think that Judeo-Christian ethics are the basis of the Constitution, I do support their right to commemorate that belief — just not on public property. It really bothers me that such a large marjority of Americans can’t seem to make a distinction between private belief and public practice.

    I personally am always annoyed at the Pledge of Allegiance. If we put “under God” into the thing back in the 60’s, we can certainly take it back out. I wonder if the recent attention to division of church and state will get that far.
