Federal judge allows Ten Commandments display to remain

From the Daily Herald...

A federal court judge Tuesday ruled that a marker engraved with the words of the Ten Commandments may remain on city of Everett property.

The monument stands in front of the Everett police station, the old city hall site, near the intersection of Wall Street and Wetmore Avenue.

U.S. District Court Judge Robert Lasnik denied a request by Everett resident Jesse Card, an agnostic, who sought removal of the monolith, a six-foot high granite structure. Card said its presence violated the principle of separation of church and state.

However, in a written opinion, Lasnik ruled that the city display "poses no real threat to freedom of religion and is therefore permissible" under the U.S. Constitution.

There are still appeals, and the resources of these anti-Christian hate-mongers seem to be fairly vast. I doubt this is the end of the story.
