Virginia school board votes to remove Ten Commandments from school
The Giles County School Board has voted to remove a copy of the Ten Commandments from the wall of a school.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia had sued on behalf of a student to remove the Ten Commandments from Narrows High School, saying it violates the First Amendment's protection against government endorsement of religion. A federal judge sent the case into mediation May 7.

The Roanoke Times reports that the board voted unanimously Thursday to replace the display with a copy of a page from a history textbook that mentions the Ten Commandments in conjunction with American government and morality. It was unclear how that would affect the mediation. ...

"First Amendment's protection against government endorsement of religion."

We have no choice but to be born into and live within the existence which God the creator has composed for us.

We have no choice but to be born sinners and exist within an evil and wicked experience in creation.

Born into sin!
Born to sin!
Born - and no choice about it!
Born without freedom to choose.
Born into judgment!
Born guilty!

A creator's constitution of no freedom of religion. And no freedom of choice! Therefore freedom of speech is irrelevant......

Why complain about a human constitution when the divine one sends us to hell anyway?

On this we agree, Jim.

On the other hand, while opposed to state churches, there was some recognition of the difference between those and the true faith:

"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here."
Patrick Henry, 1775

He also spoke what we might today see as a prophetic unfolding for this country:

"It is when people forget God that tyrants forge their chains."

Mike as the Baptists were being persecuted by the Anglicans -- what is the true religion? (Well of course we know Baptists represent/represented it) But there were serious religious divisions long before the Revolutionary War. In Deerborn Mich., they probably would demand morality be taught from the Qur'an.

Too many of the Founding Fathers had seen Catholic and Protestant state churches both here and abroad, and they didn't want anything to do with them.

Paganworld, when were we suppose a Theonomy? To help you out, the answer is "Never!" Now if we were a more homogenous country, we would be able to apply more Blue Laws.

In a word, the Constitution -- in a pagan land, which the U.S. is today -- is useless.
Is it safe to say that you would not stand still for a copy of the constitution to be displayed in your church?

Seems the US Constitution in its wording, has become a troublesome bone of contention for the Christian community. I suspect the authors didn't anticipate that problem when they wrote it.
Looks like the reprobates are winning!

If you want to teach religion, then home school! Homeschool Nebraska -- really an excellent video from out of left field! Or at least send them to a religious school.

This is what our country is all about. Not only protecting the individual from the immoral mob, but the "Moral Majority," whatever that is, Thomas Jefferson, made that clear in his Reply to Danbury Baptist Association Secular schools are suppose to be secular, which means we really aren't to let the religion of Evolution to go unchallenged either, The Scientific Case Against Evolution.

There are parts of the country where Catholic, Jewish, teachings go unchallenged in public schools because every last pupil belongs to one of those groups. No doubt there some public schools has readings from the KJV probably all black ones since many blacks have a fondness for that version. But, I can definitely can see a problem even if there is one student whose a Rastafari, has his religion looked down upon (Yes, you should. ) in a secular school, this should be avoided.

I guess this is viewed as a constitutional thing. Not a majority rules thing...

On behalf of one single student? Is that what it takes to be a majority these days? Where were the backbones of the other students? Out for summer vacation, I suppose. Sad, very sad.
I was just about to make the same statement that one insane and psychotic student can dictate policy? I was under the impression that the majority wins.
