    No, but if a student or faculty want to display something in public schools they should be able to. It's shouldn't be a religion free zone.
    You called people who don't want to have to read the 10 dictates of some religion hypersensitive. It's the same as those religious people being against same sex marriage. It is hypersensitive. It has a lot to do with as the examples relate the same feelings from both perspectives.

    I would have stuck to, "why do you feel the need to have the 10 Commandments posted in _________? Why do your sensitivities need to be promoted so superficially and frequently in public?" It at the very least flips the question rather than going off topic.

    i can tell you are foaming at the mouth over this simply because it is religious and i can tell religion has not been on your side.

    just take a breath and think about the argument at hand

    The very same thing could be said about the other side here digs, why do religious people have to be so hypersensitive about not being allowed to display the 10 Commandments in a public school building? It's a public school building and people shouldn't be allowed to hang up whatever they want to. It should be for learning and unless they are willing to put up all manner of religious teachings, including Muslim laws and Hindu laws, Buddhist principles and the many old school religious teachings, Wiccan rules, plus things that express atheist and agnostic ideals, not to mention probably many more just to ensure that you actually do represent as many people as possible, then it is best just to leave the 10 Commandments (as a banner at least) where they belong on church or private property, not as a public school house decoration.

    Because, if we can't maintain separation of church and state, then the Necronomicon and other fictional works have just as much right to hang outside the courthouse as the 10 commandments.

    The Book of Mormon contains a very good answer to this, I think…

    1 Nephi 16:2

    …wherefore, the guilty taketh the truth to be hard, for it cutteth them to the very center.


    Those who are wicked do not like to be reminded of the standards that they are violating. They are often very motivated to do whatever they can to see that any such reminders are censored.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    I've always found it very strange that the left have succeeded in perverting the First Amendment, into an excuse for exactly the sort of censorship and suppression that the First Amendment was clearly intended to prohibit.

    The fact of the matter is, you can take nine of the Ten Commandments and very convincingly show why they are good for society from a completely secular and logical framework.

    It wasn't costing anyone anything until militant bigot atheists made it an issue.

    If you remove the 1st commandment, then the other 9 have no authority and become subjective and optional.
