Ohio Courthouse Can Keep The Ten Commandments

20 04 2006

Makes you wonder why Judge Roy Moore in Alabama could not keep it there too.

But I’ll take this good news anyday.

A Ten Commandments monument that has stood on the courthouse lawn for almost 50 years does not promote religion and can remain in place, a federal judge ruled.

U.S. District Judge James Carr said Tuesday that the monument can stay because the motives for placing it outside the Lucas County courthouse were secular and not an endorsement of a specific belief.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio sued Lucas County in 2002 to have the display removed, saying it was unconstitutional and promoted religion.

The Ten Commandments sitting inside the building or right next to the judge’s gavel does not “establish” or “promote” a religion either. Golly gee, most of our laws are based on them, doesn’t it make sense, that since the laws allow and respect other religions, that judges could figure this out more often?
