A Brief Thought Concerning The Supreme Court's 10 Commandments Ruling
Question: Is this really about the Constitution anymore?
I don't think so. The whole "Separation of Church and State" argument is an interpretation by a past Supreme Court Justice, Hugo Black, and not in the Constitution. The only thing the Founding Fathers wanted was to prevent a State Religion being established. They did not want the abolition of Christianity or any other religion. Religious freedom was the result of the U.S. Constitution.
Displaying the Ten Commandments is not invoking religion. U.S. Constitutional law is based on the Ten Commandments and the Bible.
Final thought: If it's okay to display the Ten Commandments outside a government building but not okay to display the Ten Commandments inside a government building, does this 5-4 Supreme Court ruling represent an endorsement of the idea of Judeo-Christian segregation?
You be the judge.
