You said above, that you don't want the judge to have a 'religious morals'.

What is wroung with religious morals?

They seem like pretty simple and basic things....

No, they're not. Aside from the basics, they're specific to religion and excludes the morals of those outside of the faith.

For example, in some branches of Christianity homosexuality is taboo. That religious morality could lead to lopsided judgments from someone presiding over a case involving gay men.

In the strictest branches of Islam, women have certain 'roles' that they need to play in society. If a judge used this religious code while presiding over a divorce, it might be lopsided as well.

If a Hindu judge presided over a case against a slaughterhouse, he might not judge too fairly since the cows might be considered sacred on his part......

Now it's just getting silly, but I think you get the idea.

And you 10 commandments thing about not killing, stealing, cheating and whatnot.....

That's not a religious moral code, thats a societal code that is in place in most societies despite religion.
