Freedom From Religion Foundation Files Complaint Against Judge Kemp For Giving Amber Guyger Bible

The Freedom of Religion Foundation has filed a complaint with the State Commission on Judicial Conduct regarding the actions of Judge Tammy Kemp in the Amber Guyger murder trial.

After Guyger was sentenced to 10 years in prison for the murder of Botham Jean, the judge hugged her, gave her a bible and prayed with her.

The organization filing the complaint says it goal is to protect the Constitutional principals of the separation of church and state.

The complaint states:

We write to raise your awareness of Judge Kemp’s actions at the close of the trial — during which she gifted a Christian bible, instructing the convicted criminal on how to read the bible and which passages to pay attention to, and witnessing to that convicted murderer. These proselytizing actions overstepped judicial authority, were inappropriate and were unconstitutional.

Courtroom video shows that after the sentencing and the victim impact statement, Judge Kemp left the courtroom, then returned holding her personal bible. She walked over to Amber Guyger at the defense table and proceeded to preach.

The full complaint can be read here:

Really? In this day and age of so much attacking on anyone’s religion, it’s far better to see someone encourage another individual to read some religious reference. If the individual is not a Christian she could simply hand the Bible back to the judge and say, no thank you. Wow.

All that’s find but not a JUDGE. She is supposed to be impartial. And there is supposed to be a separation of church and state. That was extremely unprofessional.

Where are you getting your information, Linda? We atheists don’t “call on God” when we have difficulties. We are vastly not represented in the prison population which is more than I can say for Christians. And incidentally, to quote Spike Lee: “If you’re black and Christian you have a short memory.”

Do you mean to tell me you “believe in God” and then you write this hateful, evil crap about a woman who did not intend to shoot the man? There is something wrong with you! Get help.

That Women did mean to shoot him, she lied the whole trial. White people always want to be the victim even when they are the murderer.
That bitch said he was coming at her when she shoot, the forensic showed that was a lie. She shot in a downward trajectory.
This bitch murdered that man in his own home, had the race been reversed it would’ve been life and no bible. So fuck your comment

“Hope” for what? The only “hope” we have in science, not the superstition that has kept us from equality. I hate to say it, but Africa didn’t enslave England now did it?
This community needs to face facts!
We also need to stop the “Queen” “King” BS. This is a democracy. Don’t celebrate it when it gives us civil rights and then trash it while appealing to “Africa,” which is just code for “double standards.” This is America, and there is a Separation of Church and State. Mixing the two brought us Trump!

And thanks to President Trump, you, me & the rest of the world will be learning about the unbelievable levels of corruption during the Obama administration. All the manufactured shams against Trump; the illegal FISA warrants, illegal wiretaps and more.

Thankfully huge swaths of the black community are realizing that Democratic politicians have had a boot on their neck (which should be no surprise, the Democratic party after all, was the party protected by the KKK) and have intentionally held them back from achieving greater. What once was the Democratic party’s underclass (how ever offensive that thought is) is now an awakening giant, rising in both employment & income. Thanks to President Trump!

Dream on. The black community and most whites reject your superstition about Trump. What a bunch of baloney.

Once you realize that God has favorites and you’re not one of them that’s when you become an atheist. BWT.. I consider myself agnostic.
