The Newton County Board of Commissioners in Georgia just approved a display of nine “historically significant documents” to be placed in the local courthouse.
And, as alert readers know by now, that’s really just a code for Let’s get the Ten Commandments up in city buildings… and we’ll just surround it with other shit so no one can sue us.
In fact, the Ten Commandments display, along with another about the phrase “In God We Trust,” are really the only two that have no historical significance at all. It’s not like our laws derive from them. Hell, only two of the Commandments are legally forbidden — and it’s not like that’s the case because they were written in the Bible.
