    Tell me, how does posting a copy of the Ten Commandments make laws that respects or establishes one religion over the other ?

    And if a Judge ruled that they be removed then his ruling can be appealed.

    It WILL be appealed.
    I think Sharia Law should be placed on courtrooms because they're just as applicable.

    " Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...."

    Does posting the Ten commandments on a Public building do that ?

    And also, what does Sharia Law have to do with our Judeo Christian founding ?

    Can you see how you contradict yourself in as little as two sentences?

    As far as I'm concerned this should be a local government issue. Whatever the city council decides can be there, whether Christian, Jewish, Satanist, atheist or whatever.

    It's words the government endorses. I don't think those words should be cheapened by letting any majority throw its ideology around.

    To the Left, the government has to be the religion everyone has faith in.

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.
    Mankind was around for a 10s of 1000s of years before the ten commandments, which means it cannot be anything akin to foundational. Furthermore the bible simply related stories similar to ones that are centuries older than the bible, again meaning that the xian 10 commandments are not foundational to mankind.

    Is there a particular Commandment with which you disagree?

    We on the left have so many religions. Atheism is our religion, statism is our religion, government is our religion, science is our religion. It get so confusing what to pray to after a while.
