Mohammed on the Supreme Court

I just recalled that whenever theocons try to justify throwing up Ten Commandment displays wherever they can, they note that the Ten Commandments appear in the Supreme Court building.

And suddenly I remembered that the two times I've been there for oral argument, I've observed (confirmed by Supreme Court pamphlets describing the decor) visual representations of Mohammed.

Better watch out, Justices. The next thing to get torched is the Supreme Court building . . .

As a footnote, some might reply, "well, the picture is not offensive." But recall, many of the protesters are protesting not because the cartoons were offensive representations of Mohammed, but rather because Mohammed was represented at all.
