MINNESOTA: Supreme Court Nominee Vows To Put The Bible Above State Law

Via Hemant Mehta at Friendly Atheist:

Lawyer Michelle MacDonald, who faces DUI charges, just won the Minnesota GOP’s nomination to become a state Supreme Court judge. Just before getting the nomination, MacDonald explained how she would make decisions: Forget the law. It’s all about the Bible. “When judges used to enter the courtroom, they would hold the Bible over their head, like this. In the words of George Washington, it is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.” She’s a bad historian, too. There’s no evidence whatsoever that Washington said that. (Even Christian pseudo-historian David Barton, who popularized that lie in the first place, later admitted there was no proof he said it.)
