What is THIS BS!!!

The Anti-Christians have again trying to outlaw any Biblical references or in this case, using a Bible.
The Colorado Supreme Court has overturned a convicted killer's death sentence because jurors brought Bibles into the jury room and wrote down and quoted passages from the Old Testament during deliberations.

Robert Harlan will serve life in prison without parole after being convicted and sentenced to death in 1995 for the kidnapping, murder and rape of a 25-year-old woman and the attempted murder of a woman who came to her aid.

The jury recommended the death penalty, but defense attorneys challenged the sentence after discovering several of the jurors brought Bibles into the jury room.

The defense argued allowing jurors to refer to religious works while deliberating was improper because they are not part of Colorado law, the Associated Press reported.

Two Old Testament verses from Leviticus were particularly problematic, claimed the defense. One read, ''fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, as he has caused disfigurement of a man, so shall it be done to him.'' The other: ''Whoever kills an animal shall restore it, but whoever kills a man shall be put to death.''

Adams County District Judge John J. Vigil, who admitted Harlan's crimes ''were among the most grievous, heinous and reprehensible'' he had ever seen, ruled the death penalty ''must be imposed in a constitutional manner'' and vacated the sentence.

The state of Colorado then appealed the ruling to the state Supreme Court.

''The Supreme Court finds that it can no longer say the death penalty verdict was not influenced by passion, prejudice or any other arbitrary factor,'' the court said in a 47-page ruling.

The Colorado Supreme Court needs to be impeached!!Why was it wrong of the juror to bring a Bible into the deliberation room and read it? Since when can't a juror use a book with Morals and Values as a guide in making a decision? It is not like she brought in a newspaper or magazine with the case written about in it, she brought in a Bible!! There needs to be further appeals on the Colorado Supreme Court's decision, because it is just plain WRONG!!
