So what do we think of this?

A judge decided to emroider the 10 commandments on his robe.

Do you have any issues with that?

The attorney in the case he was about to hear had an issue.

And why not?

Judge McKathan told The Associated Press that he believes the Ten Commandments represent the truth "and you can't divorce the law from the truth. ... The Ten Commandments can help a judge know the difference between right and wrong."

While that may be true, why do judges these days feel the need to make a statement beyond their judgement?

I am glad to see Judge McKathan would like to be an activist, so I say....

Great! Resign, be an activist!

Until then, do your job, be a judge.

You could do a whole lot more for your cause by not creating a stir, i.e. publicity, and rendering your judgements based on your beliefs.

Judge McKathan, if you weren't so busy whoring yourself out for publicity, you could have rendered all the lopsided justice you wanted. And without opening yourself up to continuances, and possible mistrials.

Keep up the good work!

Is this judge saying he does not have the Ten Commandments memorized and he needs them on his robe for reference? Come on!! Isn't there a Bible that people swear to the truth on before they take the stand? Maybe he could look up the Ten Commandments as needed there!

"I chose the smaller print so it is not in your face". I don't care how small the print is, if it's in gold on your black robe it will draw people's attention! I would argue - that's is the whole point!!!

So I guess "Thou shalt not kill" is never relative. Like in self defense...We live in a world of "relativity". From Einstein's theory of relativity to the potential victim shooting a serial killer who is trying to kill her in her own house....Just maybe that is the sole reason for judges in the first place!

What a HUGE smoke screen!

Is this the first stages of the Christian versian of implementing religion into all aspects of government. Just like the Islamic fundamentalists and Taliban did and are trying to do throughout the Middle East?
