Alabama Senate Approves Proposal That Would Allow Display of Ten Commandments on Public Property

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — The Alabama Senate has approved a bill that would place on the ballot a proposed constitutional amendment that would allow the Ten Commandments to be displayed on public property.

The measure put forth by Sen. Gerald Dial, R-Lineville, requires the Decalogue to be a part of a broader display that includes other historical pieces.

“The proposed amendment would propose a constitutional amendment which would provide that property belonging to the state may be used to display the Ten Commandments and that the right to display the Ten Commandments on property owned or administrated by a public school or public body is not restrained or abridged,” S.B. 139 reads.

“The Ten Commandments shall be displayed in a manner that complies with constitutional requirements, including, but not limited to, being intermingled with historical or educational items, or both, in a larger display within or on
property owned or administrated by a public school or public body,” it outlines.

The bill, which additionally contains language protecting religious freedom and association, also includes a prohibition on using public funds to defend the constitutionality of the amendment.

The measure was approved by the Senate 23-7 on Thursday, with all seven in opposition being Democrats. It will now move to the House for a vote.

“I don’t think there’s that much opposition in the House,” Dial told the Montgomery Advisor. “I’m going to give it the best shot.”

If it passes, the measure will then be placed on the ballot for voters.

“Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, providing for certain religious rights and liberties; authorizing the display of the Ten Commandments on state property and property owned or administrated by a public school or public body; and prohibiting the expenditure of public funds in defense of the constitutionality of this amendment,” the ballot initiative will read.

As previously reported, the 2005 U.S. Supreme Court decision of Van Orden v. Perry, which upheld a Ten Commandments monument at the Texas state capitol, noted that Decalogue displays are “common throughout America.”

“We need only look within our own courtroom,” the justices wrote. “Since 1935, Moses has stood, holding two tablets that reveal portions of the Ten Commandments written in Hebrew, among other lawgivers in the south frieze.”

“Similar acknowledgments can be seen throughout a visitor’s tour of our nation’s capital. For example, a large statue of Moses holding the Ten Commandments, alongside a statue of the Apostle Paul, has overlooked the rotunda of the Library of Congress’ Jefferson Building since 1897,” the decision continued. “And the Jefferson Building’s Great Reading Room contains a sculpture of a woman beside the Ten Commandments with a quote above her from the Old Testament (Micah 6:8).”

“A medallion with two tablets depicting the Ten Commandments decorates the floor of the national archives,” the court outlined. “Inside the Department of Justice, a statue entitled “The Spirit of Law” has two tablets representing the Ten Commandments lying at its feet. In front of the Ronald Reagan Building is another sculpture that includes a depiction of the Ten Commandments.”

    Well at least they’re not going to be wasting any taxpayer money defending the amendment in court.

    It’s a dead issue — the State can’t override the US Constitution, and this kind of thing has been found clearly unconstitutional. Unless, that is, it also allows all religions, including the Satanic Temple, to put up their own permanent displays.

    • Ambulance Chaser

      I get the impression that’s the plan here.

  • james blue

    I think I know where the next goatman statue will be placed.

    • Nidalap

      In Alabama?!?
      Interesting thought, but I’m doubtful that they’re brave enough…

      • james blue

        Why would you think that? Alabama isn’t a no go zone for the satanic temple’s “after school satan” project and there are satanic churches in the state.

        Direct government bills and laws like the one in the article are their main focus and Alabama would be their “holy grail” so to speak.

        • Nidalap

          If you say so. There IS a certain stereotype to uphold though! 🙂

    • Grace Kim Kwon

      You guys must differenciate what is good (Christianity) and what is evil (Satanism). Be human.

    • Grasshopper

      I know the perfect place to put it.

  • Amos Moses

    cant have the Ten Commandments near the government ….. it creates a hostile work environment ……

    • TheKingOfRhye

      Why have it near the government, when most of it conflicts with our laws?

      • Amos Moses

        yeah … murder, theft, coveting, ignoring God, lying to the people ………. all of that is the governments agenda …. so the Ten commandments do create a hostile work environment for them ………….

        • Ambulance Chaser

          Murder and theft are illegal. Coveting and ignoring God are perfectly legal. So is lying, unless you’re under oath.

          So the Ten Commandments bear, at best, a passing relationship to our laws.

          • Amos Moses

            war is murder as is abortion being “legal” …….. the DEA/AFT and others “arresting” a persons property is theft and it is called “asset forfieture” ……. government lies as a matter of course, daily to the press and the people ……..

          • Sharon_at_home

            and our morals as well I think AC. The ones that say things like Do not commit adultery, (which I try hard to imagine most people prefer not to commit that sin) Don’t lie. Don’t about your neighbour (which didn’t necessarily mean the guy next door) And that nasty green eyes things too. It’s with the idea that if you covet someone elses things you will desire them often to the point of being willing to do something to get that “something” which would inevitably I think, a crime.
            I’m looking at the crimes we hear about and how it’s often about a relationship gone sour. People destroying their Ex’s belongings, refusing to give things back etc etc. Some end up in tragedy because of envy and a desire to be the “only one” to have them. Stalking, rapes, all of it is because the morals we had as kids, aren’t being taught anymore. Even respect is missing. I was taught to respect my elders. They love their own grandparents but often rude to other older people. I know it’s not everyone in case you are wondering.
            By not having them, does that mean they are not being taught them? Or they just want to do whatever they want and to heck with whether it is right or wrong.
            So maybe not the exact words but I think morals should be talked about with the young ones. If you look at crime, a lot of the crimes, if not all of them, can be brought down to morals, or rather lack of morals. Someone that did not think about right from wrong and usually only thinks of themselves.
            So, what do you think. Are morals missing and do you agree/disagree that the lack of them in society today is causing crime when it’s brought down to the lowest denominator. Like the first thing that affected the person that led up to their crime. Envy. EGO. Not knowing right from wrong (I’ve heard there is a name for people who truly do not know right from wrong as a syndrome or some such)., I’m sure there are many more that I’m not able to think of right now.
            God bless AC! ( you don’t mind it if I call you AC, do you?)
            I cannot give you a source at all because I have no idea.

          • Ambulance Chaser

            I think “they have no morals” is oversimplifying the reasons why there is crime. Books can (and have) been written on the subject.

            But in any case, it’s not accurate to say that the Ten Commandments are the basis for American law, or that they serve any purpose on courthouse lawns.

          • Sharon_at_home

            I guess I’m neutral about them being on courthouse lawns. I can’t think of why they should be, but I can’t think of why they shouldn’t be. So I just stay out of that.
            TBH I have no idea whether the US followed them enough to put them into their laws or not. I have understood that Christianity was a major force in the early part of the nation, but I have no idea when Christianity stopped being a major force.
            I was just pointing out that some of the commandments were about morals and they should be taught. Sorry if I rambled too long to make that clear.
            Of course it is oversimplifying the background to crime. I said if you look at it as the first moments which is kind of like the foundation of the crime?
            Being selfish in the first place, is really why the person takes the direction that lead up to the crime. I don’t by any means mean that it happens in every case of selfishness. But if a crime is actually about say, murder, but it was done because of selfishness or jealousy, it is a moral that the person was focusing on ignoring when they progressed pass the point of no return.
            Is that not right? We do look for the reason why people commit crimes, and wouldn’t/couldn’t it be the lack of morals in the first place why they don’t reason the right and wrong of their path. Or is that too simplified too. I’ve just seen so much crime that happens that at least might not have happened if morals had been applied somewhere in the midst of it.
            Even if it’s stealing (large) when they need help to survive, it is still that they chose to go against right and wrong to accomplish that.
            Laws on the other hand are not supposed to be about morals are they? But it is about right and wrong… Ok I see your point.
            I’ll have to find at least one book to read about morals and Crime. It would be an interesting read. Thanks!
            Have a great day AC!

  • Sharon_at_home

    It sounded like they were only supposed to be put with other things of History as a part of US Historical past? or some such thing. Plus didn’t the “powers that be”, make a law that it is okay to have religious things on Government land? That’s what I read, but I haven’t seen any other articles about it. Was that false news?

    And on the very same day SCOTUS ruled the other way in McCreary County v. ACLU of Kentucky, 545 U.S. 844 (2005), voting 5-4 that a Ten Commandments display violated the Establishment Clause.

    • Grace Kim Kwon

      Christianity created the USA. Everyone should remember the Creator and His laws. The monument is exactly what the lawless godless secular America needs.

      • johndoe

        Rubbish.

      • Trilemma

        Christianity did not create the USA. Christianity would not have rebelled against England.

        • Grace Kim Kwon

          The British were exploiting the Americans at that time, and it was
          right for the USA to get independence. No freeloaders even if it’s the
          homeland’s kings and queens. So happy neither the British or Americans
          were Sodomic at that time. You guys are being too bored this century
          from having everything for the longest time in a nation created for the
          godly Christian happiness. Protect your own women and children.

  • yabruf

    Heaven forbid they post the laws from which all other laws originated and the foundation of our civilized society….lol

    • Ambulance Chaser

      How do you figure that all our laws are derived from the Ten Commandments?

      • Croquet_Player

        Indeed. And if that were so, I don’t see anyone calling for a code of Hammurabi monument.

        • Grace Kim Kwon

          The Old Testament Bible is incomparably superior.

          • Croquet_Player

            So you have said, many, many times.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You guys should leave America if you so dislike the Ten Commandments. The land belongs to God. God created the heavens and the earth. The Sodomites inherit nothing. Geneis chapters 1, 18, 19.

          • Croquet_Player

            Well, since my paternal ancestors came over from England in 1629, and I’m still here, and I like it here, I have no plans to leave. But thanks for the travel tips.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Then you should not oppose Christianity because your ancestors came to America for the rights to live out the Holy Bible. For you to encourage immorality is not just wrong but also unthinkable to your ancestors and forefathers.

          • Croquet_Player

            And this is where you and I part company. Because you think I “oppose Christianity”. Indeed I do not. I neither support it nor am I against it. I think, personally, and as an American, that human beings are entitled to believe and think whatever they like. And as an American, this right is guaranteed in my Constitution, the foundation of my government. This is a very deeply held American principle, one some of my ancestors gave their lives for, some more recently than others. And if called upon, I will do the same, or do my best to support those who do. “Freedom of thought and belief.” It’s not always an easy principle to adhere to, when you see people, as you or I might think we do, behaving as we might not wish them to. But I’m sticking with it. And although you’re not an American, I support your right to believe or think whatever you like too.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            If what you are telling me is true, why are you here in a Christian site opposing the Christians? You know how Christians think. I think you are opposing the Christians because Christians are very nice to you and you want to be mean to them for no reason.

          • Croquet_Player

            Again, I am not “opposing” Christians, nor am I “mean” to them. And Christians don’t all think alike.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            I must speak out for your white Christian ancestors. I regard it as my duty. It is tragic to have fattened immoral selfish descendants who slander the honest noble hard-working Christian ancestors. You must be made realize that your Christian ancestors are morally better than your generation. They did not commit blasphemy or infanticide or imposed Sodomy upon mankind. Slaves can break free by learning how to read the Holy Bible, but the babies set for abortion are truly defenseless.

          • Croquet_Player

            You don’t know the first thing about my ancestors. But feel free to continue your elaborate fantasy.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Your white Christian ancestors were honest, godly, noble-minded, sacrificial, loyal, hard-working, and slender. Their racism was average among mankind. Moderners are fattened, dishonest, selfish, lazy, disloyal, blasphemous, baby-killing, Sodomic, and altogether racist. Moderners should shut up about the yesteryears’ peoples. The Judgment Day will reveal everything, and that will be the permenant recored for all eternity for the entire universe. Revelation 20-22. You must fear God and live.

          • Croquet_Player

            You know nothing at all about these people, and yet you’re willing to attribute all kinds of characteristics to them as if you knew them in person. It’s astounding. You’ll just make up anything,

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            This is how the liberal whites and their brainwashed mental slaves talk. The world will for-ever talk about how American Sodomites destroyed the finest nation the Christian Americans created and established, as long as the world continues and for all eternity. Stop bashing your serious, superior Christian white ancestors. Moderners should stop blasphemy and infanticide and Sodomy. The well-feds have no rights to bash anyone in history. Revelation 9.

          • Croquet_Player

            As I have stated elsewhere, I do not “oppose Christianity”. Please stop misstating what I have said. Nor do I “bash” my ancestors, slender or chubby as they might have been. I like you as a person Grace, but when you start behaving irrationally, I won’t be involved. Try to stick to the topic at hand.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            My point is that you Americans need the Ten Commandments monuments and the copies of the Holy Bible for you to know the truth and be humane.

          • johndoe

            The USA is not nor has it ever been a theocracy. No gods needed

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            But Americans force Sodomy if they are not Christian. Americans are just another case of sick bad guys on Planet Earth if they oppose the Holy Bible. Retain the Holy Bible to stay civilized, not just to get saved.

          • Colin Rafferty

            If you force sodomy, you are a rapist. I think you mean “Americans force people to allow sodomy to occur between consenting adults”, not “Americans force Sodomy”.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Sodomy = support of Sodomy. Sodomites = those who support homosexuality. Read Romans 1. Jude 1. America forces mankind to support the homosexual sin. Ex-christian is a madness to the West.

          • Colin Rafferty

            That’s not what those words mean. Sodomy is the act. Sodomite is a person who performs sodomy.

            When you say “Americans force Sodomy”, what that sounds to English speakers is that Americans are forcing people to perform the acts of sodomy. I see that it’s not what you mean. But if you use proper terminology, people will understand you better.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            It’s the same sinful thing. Engaging it or the approval of it. Americans bully the Christians because they differenciate the same thing. A for-ever slave owner by oppsing the Holy Bible. Sin is slavery. Read John chapters 8-10.

          • Colin Rafferty

            Words have meaning. They are two very different things. For example, I defend your right to practice your Christianity. But that does not make me a Christian, and calling me one would just be confusing.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You don’t defend my right; therefore you are no Christian.

          • Colin Rafferty

            Sure I defend your rights. When have I ever said that you should not be allowed to speak? When have I ever said that your religion should be treated worse than other religions?

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You never defend anyone’s rights but spreading of immorality. You do it without seeking the truth yourself, knowing fully that your nation’s culture is going for oppressive immorality. Read the Holy Bible. It’s your soul’s eternal destination at stake and nothing else. If you had anything true in you, you’d have told your friends to stop sinning.

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        If you don’t read the Holy Bible, you have no idea how much your ancestors have stolen from it for 2,000 years.

        • johndoe

          Nope. There was written language prior to America coming into existence.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Christians gave the Europeans and all others the universal literacy for the need of reading the Holy Bible firsthand. America is Europe’s child like all other English colonies.

        • Ambulance Chaser

          That’s not only incorrect, it’s not even all that coherent.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            It is. The West is nothing apart from Christianity as man is nothing apart from his conscience.

        • Sharon_at_home

          Now I’m really interested in where you live. That comment “your white Christian ancestors have stolen from it for 2,000 years?” Now that sounds like someone of Islam. I have read that they believe the bible was corrupted by the Christians and that the stories in the Koran are the true stories.

          Grace, that was pure racism in what you said. No other way to look at it. If you think so low of us, why are you here and why are you plugging the bible scriptures? You don’t sound Christian when you talk racially about people.

          So tell us where you live and what you think that Christians “stole” from the bible? Which doesn’t make much sense TBH because the bible Is for Christians. The things at the end of your post really don’t explain what you mean about in that one sentence. Could you please make it’s meaning clearer?

          Do you even realize what you said at all?
          Do you really believe every one that lived in the pre-Christian era were Devil worshippers? Even Our Lord God never called the other gods as devils. Idols yes, idol worshippers too. but not devil worshippers.
          Do you really believe that all of Western Civilization are Sodomites?
          That’s what you just implied. Boy, you’d be lynched for saying something like that in the wrong place in America. I’d say the majority of the nation would find that statement very very offensive. And racist beyond belief.

        • Colin Rafferty

          Moses was a devil-worshipper? How about Noah?

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            It excludes Israel. Noah and Abraham and Moses worshipped the same one true holy God. Pagan-Europe was nature-and-demon-worshipping and illiterate like the rest. The Church gave the Europeans universal literacy and the West was superior only because of the Bible-literate Christianity. Western humanism brought today’s nudism and moral chaos.

          • Colin Rafferty

            Actually, writing is far older than 2000 years, and Islam is where literacy really took off. Christianity spent its first 1500 years making sure the people did NOT read the Bible.

            But it’s good to know that at least the Jews didn’t worship the devil. I was just confused because you said “pre-christian”.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You secular Westerners are always bent towards blasphemous thoughts too much like having diseases. Pre-christian for the Europeans and pagans. Israel alone is special. Protestant Reformers made literacy for all mankind possible; all others have been average illiterate.

          • Colin Rafferty

            Which particular fact was blasphemy? That I misinterpreted your meaning of “pre-christian”? Or one of the facts about writing and literacy?

            Protestant Reformers did a lot for Europe, but Asia and the Islamic States were quite literate before Luther.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You knew the term pre-christian never includes Israel. Stop being malicious. No, the commoners in Asia and the Islamic area were illiterate; it’s only the few elite nobles controlling the mass – the same everywhere on the planet. Christian Americans invented public schools.

          • Colin Rafferty

            Now that I know what you mean by “pre-christian”, I will not make that mistake again.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Thank you for your promise. Don’t treat Israel and the pagan Gentiles the same again, either, because those two are different regarding the knowledge of the one true God.

          • Colin Rafferty

            I never treat anyone by their group affiliation, but by what they personally do. Everyone is an individual.

            I certainly didn’t call the Israelites pagans. I mistakenly thought you had and asked about it.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Everyone belongs to a group and a grown member is responsible for that group. The members largely share the same features anyway.

          • Colin Rafferty

            Actually, that’s where you and I differ. I believe in treating people for what they do, not how other people choose to group them.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            I used to think like you do, but it was a politically correct lie. Let’s grow up. American niceness does not work. The land got filled with Sodomy and child-abuses. Repent of your sin and get the copy of the Holy Bible and read the Gospel of John to find your Saviour Jesus.

          • Colin Rafferty

            So which group do you belong to? What group’s misdeeds should I attribute to you?

            Or do you not belong to a group?

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            I belong to Bible-believing Evangelical Christians. Your friends call me a “fundie.”

          • Colin Rafferty

            So when an Evangelical Christian shoots up an abortion clinic, I should blame you? Because you are the same group?

            BTW, I don’t call you that.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Christians forbid lawless murder. The shooter is educated that is is sin by the Evangelical Christians in prison. But you don’t tell your friends not to oppress the Christians for opposing the Sodomy. There is the foundational difference between the Christians and all others.

          • Colin Rafferty

            You’re using the No True Scotsman defense. You should google it.

            Actually, I tell other people on these boards that they should not discuss religion at all, just as I don’t. I discuss morality and ethics and politics.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Morality and ethics and politics are all about religions, too. Sodomic West oppresses Christianity. Separation of the Church and state was invented when no Americans were Sodomic. It was unthinkable to the American fathers how chaotic immoral today’s Americans could be. They’d have added Christian morality as the top human right if they knew what would happen.

          • Colin Rafferty

            You have a funny history of the US. In 1776, it had been less than 100 years since the last of the British Civil Wars, based around which particular strain of Christianity was correct and which wasn’t. You could literally be executed if your view on divorce was incorrect. Would you like to go back to those times?

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            America’s history started with the Puritan Pilgrims. Yes, the yesteryears were better because no white people forced Sodomy upon mankind back then. The Russians are better than Americans today. You must not criticize your own ancestors when your generation is a bunch of baby-killing playboys and prostitutes. Anyone is morally better than the moderners living in rich secular nations.

          • Colin Rafferty

            Good point. And they were escaping so that they would be allowed to practice their faith without government intervention. We have a strong tradition of religious tolerance here in the US, and no desire to put one religion above all others.

            I know you disagree with the idea of religious liberty, and think that we should all be your kind of Christian. But this is America — founded on liberty. We choose to let people practice their religion freely, as long as they are not trying to force others to do the practice.

            And even if it means that some people do things that I may find morally reprehensible, I’m happy with that.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Liberty alone is a slavery to filthy self. Sin is slavery. American liberty was possible only because the Americans were also moral yesteryears. Freedom is impossible apart from Christianity. Today, the Western culture including America imposes Sodomy and sexual mental illness upon mankind, violating the human rights in the basic level. The West must get fixed by the Christian Church like all others. Today’s America is a slave to sexual immorality like drug-addicts. Addicts know no liberty but only bully and wreck the society.

          • Colin Rafferty

            You may think that you are filthy, but I don’t think that I am.

            And as I’ve said many times, no one is imposing sodomy on anyone. You prefer not to practice, that’s fine!

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You must repent of your sin if you are practicing homosexuality. Read Romans 1 – 8. Westerners including Americans must not demand mankind to accept homosexual sins as something normal or transgender lies as something to be estabilshed. Every culture has deadly sinful defects. White people are beautiful, but demanding of immorality is not acceptable.

          • Colin Rafferty

            No, I actually don’t have to do that. Thanks for the advice, though!

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You must do that in order to get saved. You must stop rebelling against the Creator God. Don’t prohibit your children on going to church and hearing the Word of God.

          • Colin Rafferty

            I am not rebelling against any God. I am also not prohibiting my children from going to Church. I think everyone should be free to follow whatever religion they may believe in. Even you.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You are. Unbelief is the unpardonable sin. Repent of your sin, read the Holy Bible, and seek the truth and find life. Jesus is the Way and the Truth and the Life. Sending your children to the Western mainline “churches” are as bad as sending them to no church. The West and its mental slaves must grant everyone to reject any form of sexual immorality including homosexuality and transgenderism. Any Non-Western nation must not bodily hurt the LGBT peoples unless they touch children. Both cases are wrong.

          • Colin Rafferty

            I’m the US, we already have the ability to reject whatever we think is immoral. Come here, and no one will force you to live according to someone else’s beliefs.

            Of course, you also won’t be able to force anyone to live by your beliefs either, but that’s what this country was founded on.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Non-christian Westerners and their global young mental slaves believe in immorality more than anything else today. The West needs Christian beliefs to be good and fair and honest, not just for salvation. Secularists only plan manual population control by abortion-murder and installation of immorality. Christianity has been the conscience of the Western civilization therefore America. You need it to get saved and stay civilized.

        AC, please confirm if you can, do you study the old testament in law school?

        • Ambulance Chaser

          Not in my law school. I suppose I could ask around but I doubt I’d get a different answer from anybody I know.

          • InTheChurch

            A friend went to Utah and she signed up for old testament law in law school.

          • Ambulance Chaser

            Yes, you can sometimes take electives to satisfy your curiosity. My school offered “Melville and the Law” as an elective. I can’t imagine what purpose either of those courses would serve in practice, but since law school is largely about how to theorize and debate rather than learning concrete facts, I suppose any type of vaguely law related courses can eventually find some use.

          • InTheChurch

            I guess if you have a case that has religious undertones, it can help. Thank you for the info.

    • Colin Rafferty

      Really, where in the Constitution does it says that we must obey no God but Yahweh? Or that we must not make idols? Or take the Lord’s name in vain? Or covet? Or keep the Sabbath holy? Or honor our parents?

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        Americans only knew the God of the Holy Bible. No other. You guys mimicked the Jews and established the nation. Stop repaying the good with evil to the Christian Church.

        • Colin Rafferty

          What do you mean about Americans mimicking the Jews when establishing the nation? Modern Israel was founded in the 20th Century, and the USA was founded in the 18th Century.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            The Exodus and the Conquest of Canaan. Many peoples of the world remember Moses and Joshua in overcoming all kinds of difficulties applying Israel’s history spiritually. America’s strength is in the application of the Biblical truths. Israel was destroyed once because of idol worships and mass murder and immorality; American Empire is following the same path. Israel has God’s eternal Covenant. America has Christian population. You must not persecute the Christians this century for doing what is right.

          • Colin Rafferty

            I don’t see how the Exodus is related to founding the US. The people who revolted in the 18th Century were already here — they didn’t flee at all. Not much mimicking.

            We also didn’t call down any plagues on King George II.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            The Puritan Pilgrims had the same courage of Moses, and the American settlers and colonists always looked up to Israel for overcoming tyranny and obstacles and the enemy forces. It’s been scattered in American documents and literature. Read “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.” The last slave owner resembles today’s American Sodomites who force the poor nations to do evil.

    • Grace Kim Kwon

      Don’t joke using the word “Heaven” like that. American comedies are often blasphemies. That’s why immigrants and kids do not respect Americans anymore.

    • Chris

      Evidence please.

  • Grace Kim Kwon

    Good!! There is only barbarism apart from the Ten Commandments. The Holy Bible is the only lawfulness upon the earth. Ex-christian Sodomic West forces mankind abortion-murder and homosexuality and funds it using their power and blood money. Mankind need the Holy Bible for lawfulness and freedom, both then and now.

  • Trilemma

    How come the Ten Commandments Christians want to display written on stone tablets are not the Ten Commandments actually written on stone tablets according to the book of Exodus.

    • Sharon_at_home

      Do you mean because they aren’t written in Hebrew? Are they not in the right order? Or is it something else I’m missing in your comment?

      • Trilemma

        The Ten Commandments that most people think of were spoken by God to all the Israelites from Mount Sanai. The Ten Commandments that were written on stone tablets are given in Exodus 34:14-26.

        • Sharon_at_home

          Thank you for pointing it out, I appreciate it.
          I believe the idea of writing them the way we see it outside of the bible, is to let people read them and understand them clearly, rather than not bothering with them because they are difficult to read. I had always had difficulty reading the KJV before I started Church, but was able to read it without having trouble afterward.
          They want people to understand them so they will follow them and our society would probably have been quite different if some of the commandments were followed still. As long as progress was still happening too.
          Can you imagine how large the tablets would be if it had written the whole of Exodus 34:14-26 !
          God bless! and Thanks again!

    So even after all the bruhaha over Judge Roy Moore originally placing the monument in the Capital, politicians are going to do it again via the voters.
