WHY IS THE SUPREME COURT SO HOSTILE TO RELIGION?

There apparently is no limit to anti-religious nit-picking. The American Civil Liberties Union wants an injunction to keep an Indiana school from posting an 11-point code of conduct.

Among the rules: "trust in God," "respect authority," "honor your parents and family members" and "save sex for marriage."

The ACLU says that code violates the separation of church and state -- and probably would even without the "trust in God" part because it still would be too similar to the Ten Commandments. . . .

Would it be permissible if the moral instruction to the students was "don't trust God," "disrespect authority," "don't pay any attention to your parents" and "have sex whenever you want"? . . .

The Supreme Court has ruled that the First Amendment means government must maintain a "wholesome neutrality" toward religion, not official hostility.
