Today is August 1st, and on this date (in 2001), Justice Roy S. Moore (Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court) had a monument of the Ten Commandments installed in the Alabama Judicial Building. As if that wasn’t bad enough, he carried this out at night without the knowledge of the other justices. I thought the Ninth Commandment forbade lying, but I guess subterfuge in the name of Jesus is just fine. Fortunately, the United States District court disagreed and both the statue and Justice Moore were removed from court. Thou shalt not violate the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment (unless the Supreme Court says so).
