Court Allows 10 Commandments on Seized Land — Satire By Scott Ott
In a pair of rulings on the constitutionality of the 10 Commandments on government property, the Supreme Court today said the declaration that so-called “private” property is actually government land temporarily under private management until its eventual seizure.
In a second ruling handed down today, the Supreme Court banned the 10 commandments from appearing in courtrooms unless the following disclaimer is included: “Display of this historically-significant collection of laws shall not be construed as an endorsement of the God who may, or may not, have spoken them, nor of the existence of such a God, nor of the legality of the laws. Citizens may observe and obey these commandments at their own risk. Please consult your family attorney before embarking on any law-abiding regimen.”
