    Fundies never learn. In Dover, Bill Buckingham helped to prove that ID was all about religion with this statement:

    2,000 years ago someone died on a cross. Isn’t someone going to take a stand for him?

    And now,4 years later, another fundie torpedoes his case:

    A federal appeals court has ruled that a Ten Commandments monument outside Oklahoma’s Haskell County Courthouse “has the primary effect of endorsing religion.”


    The latest ruling prompted Haskell County Commissioner Mitch Worsham to say, “Whoever was the judge in this, I feel sorry for him on Judgment Day.”

    Yeah, placing the Ten Commandments on public property had nothing to do with religion. Riiiiight.

    Hopefully this one will turn out as well as Dover.

    Ummm…I may be reading my First Amendment wrong, but doesn’t placing verses from the Bible on a courthouse constitute “establishment of religion?”

    Or so one would think.

    Yep that’s prima facie establishment. What a maroon Worsham is, eh?

    Fundies seem to be regular “victims” of some kind of legal equivalent of the Darwin Awards.
