COURT Favors CHURCH OF SUMMUM

Much to the horror of Christians in Pleasant Grove City, Utah, the Supreme Court recently ruled to allow the Church of Summum to post its Seven Aphorisms in the town park alongside the Ten Commandments:

“They’ve put a basically Judeo-Christian religious text in the park, which we think is great, because people should be exposed to it,” Mr. Temu [of the Summum Church] said. “But our principles should be exposed as well.”

Su Menu, the church’s president, agreed. “If you look at them side by side,” Ms. Menu said of the two monuments, “they really are saying similar things.”

The Third Commandment: “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.”

The Third Aphorism: “Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.”

Michael W. Daniels, the mayor here, is not the vibrating sort.
