Supreme Court Email

A friend of mine sends the occasional email about certain things, send money for this, this perosn is lost or has cancer, and now the Supreme Court one has made its way back to me. I have received it several times; not always from my friend, but just from well meaning folks.

The problem is that some of these emails containing "un" or half truths.
Here is a piece of the email:

As you walk up the steps to the building which houses the U.S. Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building a row of the world's law givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward with a full frontal view - it is Moses and he is holding the Ten Commandments!

As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have the Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door.

This one is not completely false; some of it is true, but other parts re fiction or unconfirmed. Please check out or if you receive a fishy email that does not quite sound right. Do a search before sending it on.

Here or here is a fuller explanation of the truth and/or inaccuracies of this this email.

Defending truth,
