Florida county unveils monument bearing 10 Commandments (Courtesy Tampa Tribune)
The American Civil Liberties Union is deciding whether to challenge placement of a Ten Commandments monument in the lobby of a county administration building in Florida Thursday.
The Decalogue is in the lower left hand corner of one of the four sides of the monument, which has 18 other historical documents, the Tampa Tribune reported.
That decision to design the monument that way â€“ following advice of the Christian Law Association â€“ was made before the controversy erupted last month over a 10 Commandments monument in Alabama's judicial building. Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore defied a judge's order to remove the memorial, which features the Decalogue alone, resulting in his suspension.
But the ACLU has warned Polk County, Florida's monument could violate the Constitution's prohibition against government establishing a religion....
You know, we wonder why morality and crime is so prevalent. And here's the reson why...removing God's holy law. I just put my head in my hands and ask how can they not see what is wrong with what they are doing. There's no matter to have the Ten Commandments out in the open, if you don't believe them, fine, don't. But quit violating the constitutional rights of Americans who value and believe these Commandments.
