'Expert:' U.S. law owes little to Bible or Commandments


Paul Finkelman

MONTGOMERY The Bible and the Ten Commandments played only a minor role in the development of American law, a University of Tulsa law professor testified in federal court Tuesday

Paul Finkelman, testifying as an expert on American constitutional law and history, said the nation's founders mentioned Roman, British and European continental law but not the Bible or the Ten Commandments during their debates on the Constitution.

"The Ten Commandments represent a tiny slice of the heritage of American law," said Finkelman. "No respected scholar of legal history would assert that the Ten Commandments have played a dominant or major role, or even a very significant role, in the development of American law as a whole."

Very interesting; I have actually read the papers of the Constitutional Convention, and what Finkelman says is true. The Scriptures are not often quoted in them.

However, this is not a strong argument against Roy Moore. The primary impact of the Decalogue on American law was in the formulation of the Magna Carta and English common law. In effect, they are a foundation below the bricks that Finkelman is willing to see.

Finally an expert that got it right!
U.S and the rest of the world owes it ALL to the inspired word of God.
