"… there is no such thing as nothing."

Gerald Dial, Alabama State Senator, Wa$te$ Taxpayers’ Time & Money Writing Religious Law, Readying Federal Fight

Some folks just want to “out-Jesus” each other.

It’s as if they attempt to demonstrate by their actions that they love Jesus more than someone else… especially and particularly if they make efforts in the public square.

Christ called such behavior a type of hypocrisy, warning that such prayers were already answered – but not by the Almighty, but rather by humans – because that’s who they chose to pray to. “And when you pray, be not like the pretenders who like to stand in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets to pray, that they may be seen by the children of men, and truly I say to you, they have received their reward.

Truly, I say to you, dear reader, this type behavior disgusts me more than I have words adequate to describe.

Not only that, but the ninnies and nincompoops demonstrate that they have absolutely nothing better to do, and are not about the people’s business, but rather are about their own private agenda. They’re wasting time and money on worthless things. They’re neither visionary, nor reactionary.

They’re just plain, old, STUPID.

Every damn one of ’em.

Besides, if I wanted live under some religious law, I’d move to a country where that crap went on.

Idiots all.

It’s time Alabama voters had a recall law, because many of ’em would be. At the very least, we should place term limitations upon them, just like we did upon the office of the governor.

Supporters say proposal could allow Ten Commandments to be displayed on state property

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Some state senators said a bill passed by a Senate committee today would change Alabama’s constitution to say, in effect, that the Ten Commandments could be displayed on state property such as the Capitol or state judicial building.

The proposed amendment also would rewrite the state constitution to say the right of a public school or public body, such as a county or city, to display the Ten Commandments shall not be ”restrained or abridged.”

A U.S. district judge in 2002 ruled that a Ten Commandments monument installed in the state judicial building was unconstitutional because it violated the U.S. constitution’s ban of a state establishment of religion.

Sen. Gerald Dial, R-Lineville, the sponsor of the proposed amendment approved by the Senate’s constitution and elections committee, said he hoped the plan, if enacted, would trigger a federal lawsuit that ultimately would get to the U.S. Supreme Court and give it a chance to overturn past federal court rulings on Ten Commandment displays.

Dial’s proposed amendment would become part of the state constitution only if approved by the Senate and House of Representatives and then by a majority of state voters in a referendum.

The proposal, Senate Bill 7, says no public funds could be spent to defend the constitutionality of the amendment if enacted and then challenged in court. Dial said he has a list of people who have said they would finance a legal defense of the amendment.
