American Atheists: The Ten Commandments Are Injuring Us
A U.S. judge dismissed a case on Tuesday filed by an atheist group that was seeking to remove a Ten Commandments monument from Oklahoma State Capitol grounds, saying the plaintiffs failed to show standing to bring the suit.
The 6-foot-tall stone monument, paid for with private money and supported by lawmakers in the socially conservative state, was first installed in 2012, prompting complaints that it violated the U.S. Constitution's provisions against government establishment of religion.
"The Court finds that Plaintiffs have failed to establish standing and therefore the Court lacks jurisdiction to decide this action," U.S. District Judge Robin Cauthronwrote....
The Ten Commandments are doing what they are supposed to do. They offend the natural man. Our God is so loving that He doesn't sugarcoat anything. He mercifully shows us, through His Law, that we have not glorified Him in the manner for which we were created. If the "atheist" (a misnomer if ever there is one) really wants to be injured, let him search for the real meaning of "fool." I don't think he'll boast anymore about not being aware of any thing. He needs to know that he is not talking with anyone (sic). Or that he only imagines people talking with him.
When I was young a copy of The Ten Commandments was displayed on the wall in class at public school and we had a morning prayer everyday ------- How far we have fallen ... nonsensical political correctness is the chosen diluting poison of the day --- the means by which America is being torn asunder...
People of Faith always were the backbone of this country --- but thanks to sandbox-Christianity the moral fiber that our forefathers possessed is almost nonexistent today ------- Compartmentalized religion has created mental dwarfs who feel no allegiance to America and the preservation of our hard won Freedoms ... and might I add the protection of the innocent (those in the womb and those who have not reached the age of consent that are being indoctrinated with the hellishly low and debased and dysfunctional agenda driven by the homosexual\LGBT movement and their supporters --- filling young impressionable minds with situational ethics they are not cognitively equipped to fully and thoroughly decipher --- VERY DANGEROUS) ...
I don't hate LGBT people but I'm wise to their agenda
My heart is broken by it all --- Such selfishness --- Such disrespect --- Such selfish disregard ... It's beyond my ability to comprehend
Here's a very simple solution to the "atheists" who are offended by the 10 commandments: They can be exempt from receiving justice as it relates to crimes against them. Obviously,since the offender might regard the 10 commandments with contempt (maybe because they perceive them as injurious or inconvenient)then they could be free from penalty for any crimes that involve stealing,lying,murder,etc. against fellow atheists. We wouldn't want the atheists to be offended after all. And, seemingly,one ought not to uphold such pesky rules against such.What was God thinking?

Amen KK. I believe every sinner is only a whisker away from becoming Christian, if it be in God's heart to transform him/her from the inside out, resurrecting the dead, enlightening and convicting, drawing with the cords of love, applying the redemptive blood in forgiving sins, and adopting a new child to join his great family, known as The Ecclesia, and bringing forth a genuine repentance which is a change of heart, and definite trust in the Saviour of the world which issues forth in immediate justification and begins the long and hard process of sanctifying, working in him/her to do his will, worshipping the Great God for bringing them up out of an horrible pit and putting a new song in their mouth, even praise to our God, in lifelong devotion to the Gracious God, seeking to keep all of his commandments because of a new heart, having become a new creature in Christ Jesus, thus bringing glory to the Majestic God and the power of his Spirit.

I think that the "atheists" are one meatball shy of an entree and if the expression "use the old noodle" was ever relevant,I suppose that it might be most applicable to the adherents of the flying spaghetti monster.
The ever-so-slowly, unregenerate educators of the goverment public school system fooled a generation into believing that the USA was intended to be a land of multiple faiths. These mini-dictators hid their hatred of the God of the bible behind their insincere demand for "tolerance", all the while being intolerant of The Lord God and His people. These God-haters used our public school system to reproduce citizens after their own image.
Pennnned, Chris and GS what great comments by all of you and they blessed me and my walk with the Lord.
Pennnned, your comment about a baby being referred to as a fetus was very good. I have never heard a woman say she was going to have a fetus. Fetus is only involved when they want to kill an innocent beautiful life.
For me, John, it's because Christianity conflicts with their own religion of utter unbelief, or the choice to simply not believe because it frees them in this life to do and think as they choose. I still find it odd though that they choose to attack as opposed to believing as they will and leaving the rest be. Well, I guess they do in fact leave the rest be, save for bible believing Christians. Interesting, but then again, we are the only ones who stand with the bible and against sin.
kudos to this judge. what will the atheists replace it with? thou shalt steal if you are part of a protected group status? thou shalt take another life as long is its called a fetus? the commandments make sense, and are aligned with the conscience, and no one is making them give allegiance to God, they are free to reject Him as they do.

True. But why don't atheists mind their own business? It is none of their business that the Ten Commandments monument is on the Oklahoma State Capitol grounds or anywhere else in the public square in the United States.
