Judicial hypocrisy

Vinny at insignificant thoughts had an interesting photo identification contest for the past few days. The results were even more interesting.

Judge Roy Moore, as you may remember, was removed from his position for failing to diminish the meaning of the Ten Commandments into a historical document as opposed to what they truly are; the law of God. For that, he was harrassed, stalked, improperly investigated by the Ethics Committee without his knowledge, sued by the ACLU and the SPLC.

In front of the courtroom where the case of the monument was being tried stood a fountain, and adorning that multi-million dollar federally funded statue was the Greek goddess of justice, Themis.

The Ten Commandments monument was payed for by Moore’s own funds.

Themis, the Greek goddess of justice, was paid for by federal tax dollars.

The photo was of the statue of the Greek goddess, Themis, outside the courtroom.

Some will argue that no one believes in ancient Greek gods and goddesses anymore, so it's an irrelevant comparison. But most of those complaining about the Ten Commandment monument, don't believe in God, nor the Ten Commandments, so by the same argument, their opinion is irrelevant, right?
