There is something moronic about this situation. Apparently, death threats have been made on the lives of those who ordered the Ten Commandments display, containing the famous line “Thou Shall Not Kill”, to be removed.
The Christian Science Monitor sums it up as follows:
Federal District Judge Myron Thompson imposed daily fines of $5,000 on the state for contempt of his ruling – a decision upheld this month by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. For that, Judge Thompson has received death threats. Morris Dees, founder and director of the Southern Poverty Law Center, who conducted a tough cross-examination of Moore, is also staying out of public view due to threats on his life. And security around Montgomery is high, in anticipation of violence from Moore’s followers upon the monument’s removal.
Granted, it doesn’t say “Thou shall not threaten to kill”, but please! Some people are beyond merely crazy…
