In one of the Ten Commandments cases, Van Orden v. Texas, Chief Justice Rehnquist writes: "Our cases, Januslike, point in two directions in applying the Establishment Clause."
I like the religious reference in a case about religious references, but it made me wonder more broadly: What other gods can one analogize to -- preferably humorously -- in a description of the Court's caselaw, whether on the Establishment Clause or any other legal provision? For consistency of tone, I suggest that all submissions start with "Our cases, ___like, . . . ." Think of them as a sort of law-classics-geek-Tom-Swifties.
