The 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that the Alabama Supreme Court must remove a Ten Commandments monument that sits in front of the courthouse because they think it violates the separation of church and state.

"If we adopted his position, the chief justice would be free to adorn the walls of the Alabama Supreme Court's courtroom with sectarian religious murals and have decidedly religious quotations painted above the bench," the three-judge panel said.

"Every government building could be topped with a cross, or a menorah, or a statue of Buddha, depending upon the views of the officials with authority over the premises."

Perhaps the 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals is unfamiliar with the Ten Commandments decorations at its superior court, the Supreme Court of the United States.
