Church and State Law: Revising the 10 Commandments

19 May

I am not sure what to make of the case of the judge who told an attorney that a display may pass constitutional muster if edits were made to the Ten Commandments.   Parties were arguing before a federal judge about the constitutionality of a Ten Commandments display on school grounds.  In questioning the attorneys, the federal judge suggested that the monument be reduced six commandments, that way there will not be a mention of God.  In other words, this judge is asking us to take the white out (or hammer and chisel) to what God wrote.

One of the many news stories on the subject can be found here: Federal Judge Proposes Cutting 10 Commandments to 6

.As a side note, I would suggest that the 5th Commandment also be removed.  Remembering the Sabbath and keeping it Holy,directly or indirectly points to God.
