For real, Your Honor?

MONTGOMERY, Ala.
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.
