Supreme Court refuses Houston bible monument case

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]exotic_princess)

Since it's been in the news and I think mentioned here before...

As I recall, the bible hadn't been added to the monument until just a few years? before the suit, not from the beginning as stated in the article. Or maybe the bible just wasn't opened, or something.

I also love our new County judge's opinion on the matter... *cough*


The court's decision brings to a close a four-year battle over a monument that used to stand outside the former Harris County Civil Courthouse on Fannin. The monument included an open Bible under glass.

But there could be future legal wrangling over the monument. County Judge Ed Emmett and Commissioner Steve Radack said they want the county to install the monument and Bible elsewhere on county property.

"I definitely would favor putting it up," Emmett said. "Some (separation of church and state) rulings are silly. We carry money around that says, 'In God We Trust.' "
