Whats really disturbing is that citizens are virtually powerless to stop and prevail in these type of attacks. Where is the ACLJ on this? It is indeed scary that a majority vote on such things can be ruled on by one judge and their own personal interpretation of the laws. It seems the Supreme Court has found dissention on such issues lately, as many of the decisions about religous freedom often swing either way by just one vote. Separation of church and state has gone to far, It has evolved into a radical oppression by a few oppressors. I would appeal to the people to have their senators pass a law that protects what the courts can do to seals and landmarks, and make it so the legislative branch has EQUAL power and say over such matters , which at this point they obviously do not.
Clearly, the Courts decisions to destroy historical religious landmarks is not an example of separation of powers. Not when the Judicial Branch always seems to reign supreme in favor of the minority vote.
This is a democracy, a free Republic and in being so it would seem that the desires of the many should outweigh the desires of the few, as long as there is toleration of all faiths, creeds and religious historical documents and their place in society.
May God save our country.
