If the court orders that Arkansas reimburse the ACLU and other groups, challenging the religious display on Capitol grounds, for their legal costs or other financial penalties, will First Liberty Institute or Rappert and his supporters also cover those expenses? More likely it will be Arkansas tax payers stuck again with the bill. Way to go Senator!

I had a dream where a perfectly cut 20 ton cube of granite fell from the sky and landed between the bollards, crushing this monument. But the dream did not reveal if it came from God or an Ancient Alien.

Are we allowed to perform sacrifices there? I have touched it and on the way home I was low on gas, and lo and behold a great vision appeared of a Shell station and I was able to fill up- wow the power of the Idol is amazing . Who says this stuff doesnt work. It was a mystery how it all fits together but now I owe 3 turtle doves to reconcile my debt for this service.

I just now noticed it does not say it is againnnn the law to sacrifice your son, which is different than thou shall not murder since it is a ritual [ issac and jesus] and not murder. After all the farmers need rain.

Have a question for delta1234 and whooper about another commandment that is part of our common law system, I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness (Lev. 15:19-24). The problem is, how do I tell? I have asked , but most women take offense. Of course that just goes to show what happens when you give them the right to vote.

Mr. Onan had the answer to your dilemma, mrcharles, but he got too stoned for it to do him much good.
