Wiccans File Lawsuit Against New Mexico City Over Ten Commandments Display
Followers of Wicca are suing a New Mexico city for having a Ten Commandments display on their government property.
A court recently heard the suit of Jane Felix and B.N. Coone against the city of Bloomfield in the United States District Court for the District of New Mexico.
Felix and Coone are being represented by the state chapter of the ACLU, and call the display a "violation of civil rights."
"The placement of the city's Ten Commandments monument by defendants amounts to their endorsement of a particular religion in violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution," reads the suit in part....

R. K. Borill responds, I think this is more than a whiny bunch:
Deuteronomy 18:10-12 KJV  There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,  Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.  For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord : and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
It seems a few of these have been left standing because it displays the Judeo-Christian heritage of the U.S., What does Judeo-Christian Mean?, not that it represents a particular religion. Many Christians only recognize nine commandments, Legalism is Shadow, Christ is Substance. Because observing the Shabbat is a Jewish practice, not a Christian one. So, in this case, the Wiccans are anti-Semitic?
