Marvin Olasky: Teach the Ten Commandments: "In 'Braveheart,' when evil men slit the throat of William Wallace's wife, it's clearly time to fight. In 'The Lord of the Rings,' when orcs attack Gondor and Rohan, it's clearly time to fight. But when federal courts overreach, we need to see whether war is required, or whether decisions provide an opening.

His critics say he was cruising for a bruising, but his defenders say he was standing for what is right in saying NO to an out-of-control federal judiciary. The defenders say it really did not matter what he said, since federal judges are imperialistic. "
