    But I'd go so far as to say that even the three he thinks are part of our society are not, and are instead conditionally accepted in our modern society, so really none of them apply, and it's an entirely useless list.

    The Ten Commandments were Gods law for man prior to Jesus's sacrifice.

    Those who accept Jesus and God's Grace are not under the law anymore.

    So for those who reject the posting of the Commandments based on their personal hang ups with modern day Christians they should at least understand that they're really not representative of Born again Christians.

    They are ridiculous and our laws don't adhere to them anyway, hence they are also a useless display of archaic religious beliefs, and have no place in a public display, particularly around statehouses and courthouses where as pointed out it's exceptionally useless and archaic.

    There is no god, hence it's not god's law. And regardless of what you believe, it's not the law in the US and never has been. I sure hope I don't represent anything akin to a xian, much less a born again extremist.

    And you do realize that this country was founded by those who desired the freedom to express their views and not be stifled by those who might disagree? The Commandments on display does no harm to anyone...

    Lol !!

    Muslims actually beleive the Commandments are a integral part of the Quaranic ethics and laws.

    Well, minus the Fourth Amendment.

    And Moses, is considered a Prophet, Messenger and Leader in the Islamic Faith.

    The Ten Commandments were Gods laws for Jews prior to Jesus' sacrifice. Not mankind in general, just His chosen people.

    So display them on your private lawn, not on public and government spaces.

    What difference does it make if the majority of the public approves?

    You didn't reply directly to what I quoted. So let me ask you directly. So you have no problem with Islamic scripture being posted on government buildings too? Try not to bob and weave too much as you answer this question.

    That's why you all demand allegiance to the government.
