Revising History Is Fun!

It seems the Ten Commandments engraved on the wall at the U.S. Supreme Court is now considered the Bill of Rights:

Todd DuBord, pastor of the Lake Almanor Community Church in California, said he was traveling with his wife, Tracy, and was more than startled during recent visits to the courthouse and two other historic locations to discover that the stories of the nation's heritage had been sterilized of Christian references.

He was most disturbed by what appears to be revisionism in the presentations given to visitors at the Supreme Court. There, he said, his tour guide was describing the marble frieze directly above the justices' bench.

"Between the images of the people depicting the Majesty of the Law and Power of Government, there is a tablet with ten Roman numerals, the first five down the left side and the last five down the right. This tablet represents the first ten amendments of the Bill of Rights," she said.

When he asked, his recent tour guide denied there were any Ten Commandments representations in the Supreme Court building, he said.

The current information office at the Supreme Court declined to talk on the record with WND when asked about Ten Commandments representations on the building, referring questioners to the website.

Ignorance abounds. Given that we've flushed most of our history and cultural foundation, I wonder how long we have to wait for "Mohammed's Ten Pedophilic Principles" to adorn the Supremely Stupid Court.
