Supreme Court - Make Up Your Mind

In a 5 to 4 decision, the Supreme Court ruled that it was just fine for a City Council, in this case in Greece, New York, to open up their Council meetings with a prayer, even if it was overtly Christian in character.   Naturally, the Socialists on the court were in the 4 that disapproved of the ruling.  Now this Blogger is really confused.  Of course, Congress has a presiding Chaplin that regularly opens sessions of Congress with a prayer to every body's God.   And, there is statue of Moses and the 10 Commandments actually carved into the Supreme Court building, even though it is illegal to post the 10 Commandments, as the basis of our legal system, in a public school classrooms. 

This is all very confusing ever since the doctrine of Separation of Church and State was pronounced by the Courts.  No where in the US Constitution is this language.   In fact, the First Amendment to the Constitution prohibits the government from enacting ANY law that would prevent the practice of religion anywhere in America.   Even so, somehow, over the years judges have limited Freedom of Religion.  Wouldn't it be great if every classroom in America had the 10 Commandments prominently displayed, not necessarily to promote Judeo-Christian, or even Islamic religions that all recognize the 10 Commandments; but because children need to learn both right from wrong and the basis of our legal system. 

In any case, the Supreme Court really needs to make up its mind and stop making war on religion.  Our country was founded on Judeo Christian values.  Our Founders never intended a Separation of Church and state.  This doctrine is just another Secular Socialist Scheme, concocted by atheist judges, that don't believe in God.
