For real, Your Honor?

A judge refused to delay a trial Tuesday when an attorney objected to his wearing a judicial robe with the Ten Commandments embroidered on the front in gold.
McKathan told The Associated Press that he believes the Ten Commandments represent the truth “and you can’t divorce the law from the truth. […] The Ten Commandments can help a judge know the difference between right and wrong.”

Wow. If I were in court and saw the judge wearing a blinged-out version of the ten commandments on his robe, I’d be kissing my chances at a fair and impartial trial goodbye.
