A judge on Tuesday ordered Harris County to remove a
Bible from a monument outside its civil courts building, ruling that the
display violates the constitutional separation between church and state.
[The one thing that
should be removed from the building, is that judge....should it be a fact --

shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance,
whatsoever I have said unto you.

Real estate broker and attorney Kay Staley sued the county last August.
She expressed delight over Tuesday's ruling.
"It is just a wonderful day for religious freedom and religious diversity,"
she said. [The minority enemies of the Lord have more
rights than the majority believers in Jesus. Let it serve as a witness for the
The county argued that the display originated as a private expression of free
speech -- with private donations being used to buy the Bible -- and that the
county should not be held responsible for its contents.
But it is ok to push upon School students the teachings of Islam, a religion
that calls the Son of God an abomination? We reap what we sow. The
same goes for nations:

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.

Harris County Judge Robert Eckels said he is reviewing the ruling with the
