The Eleventh Commandment: Louisiana Governor Jeff Landry Is A Nut

We’ve been through this Ten Commandments stuff already. Hell, I even saw the movie version with Chuck Heston. But, why do we have to revisit the commandment of Church and State separation?

In Alabama, the people finally ousted the contemptuous “Ten Commandments Judge” Roy Moore after his extremist and sexist scandals disenfranchised his voters. His Ten Commandments monument had to be removed twice from the Statehouse for violating the separation of Church and State.

Hasn’t the line already been drawn? Unfortunately, Trump’s Supreme Court has blurred the line and in fact moved it from the 50 yard in the direction of theocracy.

I’m alluding to the the high school football coach who proselytized players by coercing prayer on the 50 yard line after the game. Trump’s SCOTUS says that it’s ok even though it’s a brazen violation of Church and State separation. The new SCOTUS has passed other similarly impertinent legislation.

In short, it’s a new game and while it’s unthinkable that Jeff Landry’s imposed display of the Ten Commandments throughout public education classrooms could withstand the scrutiny of separation, it doesn’t seem unlikely that the new SCOTUS will sustain the edict by the nut Landry.

The new SCOTUS has shown itself to be militant and willing to become it’s own version of the “living constitution.” It’s the dangerous stuff that wars are made of and in a country already at defacto war it’s a particularly bad omen. These are real steps toward dismantling constitutional jurisprudence – from the alt-right – and portends, lest I chirp the cliche echoing recently, of the fall of civilization yet again.
