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.' "

Or shoot you in the back...
If the bible is a book you love, why wouldn't you pass it out instead of chopping it up?

I transform books so they can evangelize their own relevance via their direct fusion of word and form. With my book guns, I find old books in dumpsters and thrift store bins and lovingly cut them into revolvers, automatics, and sub-machine guns. Vandalized and self empowered, they can assert themselves against the culture that turned them into debris.
