Thou shalt not...

I saw on the running foot under the news this morning that the Supreme Court may soon reach a decision on whether or not the 10 Commandments can be displayed.

This has become a bit of a hot issue for so many people. I personally don't see the big deal about having a collection of laws posted at a courthouse. Would people complain if someone posted a copy of the Rosetta stone at a library?

Some say that it's a symbol of Judeo-Christianity. If you think it is, then perhaps to you it is. To some people, Ashlee Simpson is a talented singer who entertains with her powerful vocals. That doesn't make it a truth, it's just a truth from one's perspective.

I also wouldn't object to a courthouse posting Hammurabi's code, Draco's laws, laws from China or India or the Quran, whatever. So long as they are laws, then it should be ok.
