    did not say that...people through out history have used Christianity for their own means...even today.

    but that is no way, makes Christianity as whole, in collusion with the Nazi's

    or is it you mean the Nazis used Christianity for their purposes.
    The nazi's used just about every doctrine to get their followers. They were close to communist to the workers (jobs for everyone, food for everyone), they were ultra nationalist to appease the old order and their german empire idiocy, they were all anti-jewish to appease both the church and the anti-semites, they were very protestant and pure when it suited their needs.

    But most of all they were populist fascist, power was all he cared about and dominance over every aspect of life inside Germany and the countries they invaded for the good of Hitler himself.

    But that is all getting way off the path in this issue.

    Religion is all and fine and even governments being busy at promoting "good morals" is not a problem. But all this judge says is that putting this monument on the doorstep of city hall is going to possibly cause problems with non-religious or differently religious people and that the city should not have done it. If the city would have put this monument on government land in front of a church it would not be a problem as long as no government money was involved in making and placing that monument there.

    Some people dislike being confronted with government de-facto promoting the Christian religion by way of the ten commandments. And this local government did and I think the city should have known better.

    yes many have used Christianity for their own ends.

    i myself as i said, am a firm believer in federalism, and state constitutional law. .....on matters like this........not federal

    as the father of the Constitution states,...state powers concern the life's liberty and property of the people.

    Are the Ten Commandments really Christian?

    It seems to me they're more Jewish.
