    thatS correct, the 1st is a restriction placed on the federal government to make no LAWS concerning religion,

    having a monument on a piece of property is not..... LAW.

    I agree. It was funded by private sources.

This is the reason they are there an as such, they should be left alone. It's why we haven't removed all the rest of the examples of the Ten from our federals buildings, because they represent one of the core documents of our legal system.

    Now, I'll most likely be accused of stating that the Ten are the foundation of our laws, which I most certainly am not stating. They are a part of it, but not the whole of it.
    They don't care much for natural law either.

    I love this. Religious nonsense should never be a part of public buildings. Thank God for this ruling.

    It is truly one of the most bizarre concepts to come out of this nation's political wrong-wing—the idea that the First Amendment is an excuse, or even a requirement, for this sort of censorship and suppression of the very things it was intended to protect.
    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.

    Our Bill of Rights is supposed to protect all forms of religion not deny religion.... Displaying the Ten Commandments is hardly pandering or even supporting a specific religion....

    I'm not the biggest Bill Mahr fan (or hardly a fan at all) however he did once say something I completely agree with: "Since when did atheists turn into vampires?"

    Since when did the US become an anti-religious nation?

    The idea behind the First Amendment was to ban theocratic government - not ban religion.

    It is perfectly constitutional for all religions to display their idols or religious symbols - even on alleged government or communal property.

    Furthermore I find it ironic that most of our basic laws are derived from the Ten Commandments yet people, er better yet the atheist religion has a problem with them being displayed???

    I would love to know which of the Ten Commandments these atheists disagree with? Either way they certainly disagree with our Bill of Rights....

    SCOTUS already rules on this.

    This is "censorship" of the government. I'm okay that we're limiting what the government can do or say.
