Should schools be allowed to display the Ten Commandments?

  • Atheist retards stop it

    Please, stop thinking its offending people, your not. Im a good christian, and many people are. So what if some people are so sensitive that they cant handle some words from a holy book. We need to bring religion back into schools. I can guarantee that it will prevent a mass shooting.

  • Need To Teach Those Values!

    Yes, schools should be allowed to display the Ten Commandments. Perhaps if we went back to teaching these values in the schools we could reduce and eventually eliminate a lot of the violence and disrespect that is so rampant among our teenagers and young adults. We should stop blaming our teenagers for their lack of respect. If we are not teaching them the values that are spelled out in the Ten Commandments, then we cannot expect them to grow and live by those rules.

  • The US Foundation

    Our founding fathers created our nation in the name of God. Look at the US coins it says "in God we trust". Does it say "There is no God, trust your leaders"? No it does not. The LORD God gave us the Ten Commandments to follow. Yes, schools should have it. In 63 evolutionist voted to have evolution tayght in schools. Since then abortion, crime, suicide, drug/alcohol ect... Went up. It is a sad world we live in.

  • Ye yes yessss

    Yessssgod is important so is school boom combine them and you have a good place to go not only for learning but also for God if you don't have a safe place when ur scared God and school could be I love my school we are babtist and we love God and love how our school teaches because of it

  • God gave us this country.

    God gave us the Commandments for a reason, to follow them. This is a lot of people don't know or don't follow them, maybe that's why there is so much crime in this country. Our constitution was built on Christianity, the Pilgrims were Christians, our founding fathers were Christians, with out them we wouldn't have this country. Our children should be taught about our Creator, they should know that they wouldn't be alive without him.

  • History is were we come from and where we are headed. The 10s came with the May Flower.

    Get a grip, do we throw away American History because someone today is offended? Now they demand State Education stop teaching about History while allowing fantasy story books to over run the school library? School is for what purpose?
    Ideas come from previous knowledge. We will end up teaching the ideology of chaos in the name of Liberty. Romans 1;18 is not religion, its simple philosophy concluded from scholars over a thousand years ago.

  • Teach, not Preach

    Yes, schools should be allowed to display the ten commandments. Students, of every religion, should be informed on the ten commandments of the catholic religion. Just because they are learning about the topic, does not mean they are forced to practice them or fulfill them. It is simply so they are more educated. Teachers should be allowed to teach the ten commandments, just not preach them.

  • We need more christ!

    As a Christian, the ten commandments are a part of every day life. Our country's laws are based off the ten commandments! It is an important part of are society that children need to know about. Schools are becoming less and less Christian every day. Three cheers for God and Jesus!!

  • Separation of church and state

    The separation of church and state only states that schools cannot force a religion onto kids. Henceforth, they should be allowed to display them because they teach kids how to interact with others without having to be mean. They also tell us how to be morally good.

    Also, i'd advise you to go see "gods not dead"

  • No!

    5 words- Separation of Church and State. They are government funded public schools, if they're private it's fine, but not in public schools! There are Atheist, Buddhist, Hindu and kids who don't have them as part of there religion! Leave religion out of schools! We are a SECULAR nation, believe it or not!

  • Schools should not be allowed to display the ten commandments

    In America there is a separation between church and state. It would be unconstitutional to display obscure, make believe, religious ideas in a school. The entire reason America is the best country in the world is because we do not subscribe to nonsensical thought. We are a progressive society. We can't expose our children to nonsense. We should display a periodical table on the wall rather than the ten commandments.

  • Not public schools, anyway.

    The Ten Commandments are far from universal values. While commandments like "thou shalt not steal" are probably not controversial, "thou shalt have no other gods before me" and "remember the sabbath day" are direct references to the Judeo-Christian god and have no relevance to other religious traditions. As such, they do not belong in public schools.

  • No I don't think schools should be allowed to display the Ten Commandments

    To do so violates the very principle of separation of church and state. Religion and government do not and should not be allowed to be placed together hand in hand. If someone wants to learn about the Ten Commandments, or about the Bible, they can go to a church or Sunday School for that, it has no place in the public school system. Schools are meant to teach facts, not dogma that is religion exclusive. So no I don't think schools should be allowed to display the Ten Commandments, there is no need for it, especially when not everyone believes in them. It is part of a personal belief system, and it should stay that way.

  • Publicly owned schools should not be promoting any religion.

    Our country is governed by the Constitution not any particular religious document or book. The separation of church and state is a valuable principle that keeps our country from being governed by any particular religious doctrine. Government funded schools should not be promoting any particular religion. If there is a class teaching about the different world religions then I would say go ahead and include teaching about the Ten Commandments. But in order to protect our constitutional principles and keep our country safe from being governed by religious fanaticism we need to keep church and state separate. The government should not promote any particular religion with tax dollars.

  • Why would they want to?

    Beyond the separation of church and state, the 10 commandments are not universal to Americans in general. If you want your children indoctrinated into believing something religion-based, take them to the church of your choice - that is the only place religion should be taught in a moralistic view, after all.

  • Equality for All

    Religion needs to stay out of our schools, period. If the Ten Commandments are allowed, then we need to include religious articles from the other religious that are practiced within our United States. "All men are created equal". We cannot have one group of individuals self-serving to the neglect of others. Thus, I see no reasons why "moments of silence" cannot be used within our Government dealings and schools as a way for all to pray and show respect for all religions. But--in this day and age--being purely Christian in public schools is completely hypocritical, bias, and Jim Crow.

  • Ten Commandments ARE taught in school.

    In history class, students learn about the fundamentals of all religions, and yes, this includes the 10 commandments, 5 pillars of Islam, Abraham, Buddha and more. ... .. Are you saying we should ONLY teach the ten commandments? Thank God the constitution protects me from that happening to my kids.

  • Displaying the ten commandments at public schools is unconstitutional.

    The United States constitution specifically mandates the separation of church and state. Public schools are state run institutions. It is, therefore, unconstitutional for public schools to display the ten commandments, and they should not be permitted to do so because it exhibits favoritism of one religion over the others. Privately run, Christian schools, however, should be an exception to this rule, since they are funded by religious institutions and not the state.
