Supreme Mistake

Federal appeals court judge Neil Gorsuch doesn’t see a problem with Ten Command­ments displays on cour­t­house lawns.

Several of the commandments deal with how God is to be worshiped, but to Gorsuch, the commandments aren’t “just religious” and could still constitutionally be displayed to convey a “secular moral message.”

That is why Americans United opposes this nomination.
