The Ten Commandments monument designed by Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore is pictured at the State Judicial Building in Montgomery, Ala.,in this Aug 7, 2001, file photo. U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson ruled Monday, Nov. 18, 2002, that th

MONTGOMERY, Ala. ‚ÄĒ A Ten Commandments monument in the rotunda of Alabama's judicial building violates the constitution's ban on government promotion of religion, a federal judge ruled Monday.

U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson gave Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, who had had the 5,300-pound granite monument installed in the state building, 30 days to remove it.

Moore testified during the trial that the commandments are the moral foundation of American law. He said the monument acknowledges God, but does not force anyone to follow his conservative Christian religious beliefs.

A lawsuit seeking removal of the monument argued that it promoted the judge's faith in violation of the constitution's ban on government establishment of religion. ...

I believe the Commandments are for those who value a society which does good. There is nothing written in the Commandments which would bring someone to comment an evil act. On the contrary, they establish a guildline for us to follow so that we are able to live a more productive, and happier life. Is this not what ever small town in American wants for itself?

"A Ten Commandments monument in the rotunda of Alabama's judicial building violates the constitution's ban on government promotion of religion, a federal judge ruled Monday." This is really a false statement if you read the Constitution it states and I Quote "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." The truth is our fore fathers didn't want the Government to control how we believe or practice those beliefs. It was never meant for God or those beliefs be taken out of Government, but that Government didn't interfere with such practice. We are continually lied to by liberals, the news media and liberal judges that there is supposed to be a seperation of church and state. It's time christians stood up and denounced this lie and started practicing our beliefs any where God would have us do it. A recent quote said it best, " We fear men so much, because we fear God so little." (William Grunall)

Judge Thompson remarked about the 10 Commandments display that he got, "the sense of being in the presence of something not just valued and revered . . . but also holy and sacred."

Bingo! That's what he and others fear: A Holy God with Holy Laws that have been laid down for all areas of life - home, church, and civil government.

So long as Christian symbols are props, everyone is happy. Present them for what they are and the nations rage (Ps. 2).
