    From time to time in my line of work I must go to government buildings and do some work in them. I have been working at a U.S. federal court house from time to time the past year and a half. Today I had a chance to talk with one of the Federal judges there. I asked him about the Constitutional conflict the federal Government just created with the Christian religion and the Muslim religion. He politely rolled his eyes then I explained what I meant.

    I said when the Federal Government refused to allow Franklin Graham to pray at the Pentagon and allowed a Muslim cleric to pray there. With obama making his statement he did about the Muslim religion and the mosque when he did not have to. I asked him was the Federal Government placing one religion over another. His eyes widen a bit, and said you do have a point. Technically yes. I replied Technically? The Judge said you'll have to excuse me I must go back to court, and walked away.
    I'm still puzzled what does he mean Technically?

    It must be that judicial loophole that one can conveniently jump back and forth thru depending on his party affiliation.

    You might ask George Costanza ~ he's a lawyer.

    For myself, I believe that "Technically Correct" IS correct,

    but because our judicial system is so focused on INTERPRETATION,

    that the judge couldn't just tell you, straight-up, you're right ~

    it will have to depend on how any lawyers can make any judge SEE the thang in a different light.

    Sad, but true.

    Technically it's current so I thought current events was good enough.

    The judge most likely meant "Leave me alone." Judges, especially federal judges, are not supposed to broadcast POVs willy nilly to strangers in courthouses.

    Muslims must pray at certain times, christians dont have a time frame to complete their prayers.

    He was probably raising his eyebrows because he was waiting for you to accuse him of legislating from the bench, that would explain his exit too.

    I'm not a stranger to them, I spoken with most of the judges and Marshals there. I have been to the gun range with the Marshal. They know me.

    What I find funny about this whole thing, is that anyone against the mosque is labeled an islamaphob But the same people applying that label. Demonized Romney when he was running for office because he is a member of the Scary Mormon church.

    Liberals hate Christianity Period. They will always favor other religions over it.
