Lou Dobbs on CNN just now:

“Gentlemen, just a second, let me just set the record straight here, and I think we can reach agreement. We can agree that the 10 Commandments are a fundamental element of the Judeo-Christian legal system. Can we not? That’s a separate issue from it having religious connotation.”

Huh? Judeo-Christian legal system? If that’s what our judicial system is, it’s news to me.

And talk about media bias. Funny that this is the same guy who accused Wesley Clark of pushing his own agenda.

    Apparently, it’s only bias when someone else does it.

    I love how the right believes without question that the 10 Commandments are the basis of our system of laws. Mention the English common law, or Greek or Roman law for that matter, and they get all confused.

    If you look at some aspects of the constitution, it does, in some ways, sound similar to the ten commandments. However, to assume that our entire legal system is based upon Christian law is ignorant. I would love to see what these same people would do if the ten commandments were left only if it were to have another statue, one of the Dalai Lhama, placed next to it. Or even a stone copy of the Koran. People would freak! Some people in the Christian community are afraid to admitt that not everything about our culture is based upon their experience. When they are able to admit that, then, perhaps everyone would be given equal rights. Perhaps that is why they are so adamant about keeping their precious monument…
