I was drawn to this conclusion by a contributor to the op/ed page who wrote the following;
Using a tortuously reasoned legal opinion, the Supreme Court has decided that the Ten Commandments can appear in some places, but not others. By simpler reasoning, they shouldn't appear anywhere -- in the United States, at least.Good grief. The Ten Commandments are subversive. They should be stricken from our social lexicon.
Think on the chaos that would follow adherence. The government, the economy, indeed, most of the social cohesion of America would founder and collapse.
No good patriot would promote the Ten Commandments. They're subversive. (link)
I can see every member of the editorial staff nodding in agreement. A sign of affirmation.
It's a sign of something, to be sure.
