With any luck, he’ll get fired, too

A rural Alabama judge began wearing a robe embroidered with the Ten Commandments to his Andalusia courtroom this week, echoing the statement made by the state Supreme Court chief justice ousted over a Ten Commandments display.

Covington County Presiding Circuit Court Judge Ashley McKathan said he ordered the robe and had it embroidered using his own money. He said he did it because he felt strongly that he should stand up for his personal religious convictions.

I’m all for standing by your religious convictions, should you have them, but we have a strict policy of separation of chuch and state. This part of American law has apparently eluded McKathan. You’d think a judge would be more familiar with the law, and perhaps we should be ousting judges who can’t even understand such a simple distinction.

UPDATE: Preposterous Universe has a picture.
