just another step towards making christianity illegal.
You guys...LOL...If the Bible was "LAW" we'd all be screwed.
about as unconstitutional as you can get
Dead On here Darin! It's being done incrementally but surely.
These jurors had a duty to reach their decision based on the laws and constitution of Colorado. The bible had no business in the deliberation.
They had the duty to reach their decision based on THEIR views about how the case was presented; the facts in the case. Personal perceptions are formed from a variety of sources. Put me on a Jury about somebody stealing, and i'll use my Bible-taught lesson that stealing is 'bad'.
Every juror brings his or her own bias, agenda and beliefs with them into any court room. And I might suggest in most cases the bible teaches forgiveness, so before you condemn bible readers you may want to reconsider that. Im sure those jurors looked first and foremost at the evidence presented to them, the fact that they looked to the bible for a moral compass could only have served to make them more thoughtful about the decisions they were making.
If the law is going to use MY mind to make a decision their gonna get it just like it is----but they don't WANT Christians making decisions now--do they?
