Summum

Liberty magazine called with a cover job about Summum (a new age religious sect that prays in pyramids and mummifies its deceased pets and members). The article was about their case before the Supreme Court where they sued to have a monument, reflecting their beliefs, placed next to a ten commandments monument in a Utah city park.

It seems that the Summum will most likely lose their case and we won't be running into any pyramid monuments in our parks. The story concludes with, "it stands as an important reminder to those who value religious liberty that a government that promotes the religion of some of its citizens threatens the religious liberty of others".
