New Mexico Officials Defy Court Order, Refuse to Remove Ten Commandments Monument
City council members of Bloomfield City, New Mexico have taken action for a court of appeals to review the decision that a Ten Commandments monument must be removed from city hall grounds.
According to ChristianToday.com, a judge ruled that it was unconstitutional for the Ten Commandments monument to be on city hall property after two Wiccans complained about it.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a lawsuit against the city on behalf of the Wiccans, claiming that "Our clients who are not Christians, they took issue with this and it made them feel alienated from their community," according to Alexandra Smith, ACLU legal director.
However, despite the judge‚Äôs ruling, members of Bloomfield City‚Äôs city council are standing up for religious freedom....
Judges, who are also part of government, don't like things like "Thou shalt not steal" and "Thou shalt not covet.." It interferes with their greed and lust for power. Wiccans don't like things like "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." It interferes with their love for their pentagram god.
