Ten Commandments get historic billing
They voted Monday night to exhibit them along with other historic documents, such as the Declaration of Independence, in the courthouse in Hahnville.
In other words, it is not because it is a religious document that it is being displayed. It is historic, having been the laws that governed a society back thousands of years. How historic can you get?
Of course, the ACLU will find reason for objections in due time. And they are right to object to strictly religious messages being displayed in public buildings which are for use by persons of different faiths.
But the Ten Commandments do not represent one religion’s beliefs. They are the laws that helped to build our civilized society and should be very appropriate inscribed on a courthouse wall . . . along with our Declaration of Independence which also helped to define the way in which we live.
Making them historic puts a different perspective on their display in a public building.
And by the way . . . have a Merry Christmas, whatever your religion may be.
