The Supreme court ruled on Monday that the Ten Commandments may be displayed outside on government property but not inside the courthouse. The liberal Supreme Court has once again relied upon the the false doctrine of the Separation between Church and State. The First Amendment states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
The first clause states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.” Note that it places no restrictions on the states, only Congress. Amendment Ten states “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”
Therefore according to the First and Tenth Amendments, the right to make laws respecting and establishing religion is given to the states, making both of the Ten Commandments displays legal. The Supreme Court clearly does not understand the United States Constitution.
The Supreme Court based their decision on how much emphasis the Ten Commandments displays place on religion. According to the Constitution, only if Congress placed the displays, can the displays be evaluated on these terms.Powered by Sidelines
