Apparently not all religions are created equal

Also from The Christian Post:

Two crucial cases involving the constitutionality of pubicly displaying Ten Commandment monuments will be heard at the nation’s highest court for the first time in over two decades.

On March 2, the U.S. Supreme Court, whose own building boasts four artworks showing the sacred tablets, will hear arguments regarding the crucial first-amendment right cases that could very well determine the outcome of dozens of pending lower court cases involving the public display of religious symbols, and future of the nation’s near 5,000 Ten Commandment monuments.

The cases involve a large granite monument on the Texas Capitol grounds and a wall posting in a Kentucky courthouse. Both cases will be presented on the same day, but will be heard separately and argued separately.

It should be noted that the cases will be heard on Wednesday -- the day of the week named after the Norse god Odin -- in the month of March -- the month named after the Greek god of war, Mars. So far there doesn't seem to be any objection to these religious figures being so prominently displayed in government buildings across the nation -- only the Christian stuff is a problem. Odd, isn't it.
