I would also think this type of "religion in your face" might be offensive to all Americans who aren't religious or who believe church and state should be seperate

i swear people cant read correctly "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"
note: "respecting" was used to state laws which violate a religion cant be made,
like legalising abortion, gay marriage, banning religious symbols, removing prayer from school, etc ALL violate the BILL OF RIGHTS
and everyone has it backwards all because they dont understand the context this word was used
"To avoid violation of or interference with" is this not hard to understand?
and why does everyone confuse the bill of rights and the constitution? they arent the same thing.
Alabama courts require any muslim to remove headdress and scarfs...
i grant that anyone should be able to wear any religious symbol or sign in any way that doesn't literally get physically in someones way, as long as they are not at work
I think people should be able to look at judges as standing abover parties and religious directions
How can this Judge said something like this?
