Supremes: "Fear Of Flying" to Replace 10 Commandments

Posted by a4g @ 6/27/2005 07:27:00 AM

In a widely expected 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court today banned the display of the 10 Commandments in courtrooms nationwide, replacing them with copies of Erica Jong's groundbreaking novel of sexual liberation, "Fear Of Flying."

Looking to our forefathers to inform our decisions, the Supreme Court studies history and comes up "on top"
"It's been a long struggle," said Dorothy Longmiller, who filed an amicus brief in the case. "But with this decision, the Court is siding with those of us who demand a sexier version of justice than America has been willing to dispense."

Sexy indeed. With the prudish "thou shalt nots" finally expelled from the courtroom, legal observers expect a less sexually repressive experience for litigants and defendants alike.

"The courtroom has always been a place of stiff formality and stern judgement. We're hoping it can blossom into a place where free love can flourish in a consquence-free environment. I'm anticipating that the fleeting glance of what lies beneath the judge's robes is going to become a much less uncommon occurance."

Criticism that rulings from the courts are generally sharply at odds with public opinion was brushed aside. "Octogenarians whose legal foundations were formed in the 1960s and 70s are exactly the kind of people we want preparing us for the future. It's important to let the past inform the present. Just not the distant past."
