Fox News reports, as others, that “A painting of Christ, with a sign reading "To know peace, obey these laws," has no place in Slidell City Court, the Louisiana American Civil Liberties Union says.”
Can anyone prove that this is actually a picture of Jesus? How can a picture of a man (some claim as an artist's likeness to Jesus) in anyway violate the actual Constitution, Bill of Rights, Amendment I, wording, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”?
To what I have seen, it is a picture of a man holding a book (not even in English) with words (apparently below I cannot see) that read, "To Know Peace, Obey These Laws".
This picture does not establish a religion, nor does it even convey the outlandish idea that, "As an admonition hanging in a court of law, it clearly gives the impression that only believers in the law of Jesus Christ will receive justice in that courthouse”. No one is asked what religion they are, or if they believe in God, or if they have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior when they enter the court room.
Why not ask that pictures of other persons that believe we should “Know Peace, Obey These Laws” be also added to the walls of court houses?
Hmmm…. Maybe because it has nothing to do with a fear that they will not receive equal justice, but merely a hatred for God and a love for their sin.
