Ten commandments in courthouses: Should the ten commandments be displayed in country courthouses?

  • Tradition Trumps Zealots

    Most displays of the ten commandments at courthouses have been in place so long they are more of a tradition than a religious display.

    Removing the displays doesn't do any good. Most of the people who cause a stir over these issues and want things like this removed are atheists with nothing better to do than to cause problems for other people.

  • Ten commandments support mans law

    Anyone who looks at the ten commandments would right away see that they support any laws that the government has put in place. There is no reason anyone should object to this if everyone in the world followed these we would have a great world where everyone got along,refused to steal, Even looked after each other. Not only should these be displayed at the county courthouse but lets teach them in our schools.

  • Yes, they should

    The Ten Commandments are laws just made by god not people. It shouldn't bother people. It is a law, and just because it was given to us thousands of years ago doesn't mean it is not true or right. It almost exactly the same as most laws. Thanks you for reading.

  • They Should Stay And Be Taught At Schools

    " Anyone who looks at the ten commandments would right away see that they support any laws that the government has put in place. "

    Incorrect. Only a few of the commandments are supported by laws. There are no laws against adultery, or saying the Lords name in vain for example.

    "There is no reason anyone should object to this if everyone in the world followed these we would have a great world where everyone got along,refused to steal, Even looked after each other. "

    Just off the top of my head I could come up with a few better laws than keeping the Sabbath holy. No slavery, no raping, no genocide, to just name a few.

    "Not only should these be displayed at the county courthouse but lets teach them in our schools"

    Not to mention that both displaying the ten commandments in a courthouse, a well as teaching them in schools, would be against the first amendment.

  • Seperation of church and state.

    The ten commandments should not be displayed in courthouses. The ten commandments and part of a religion and have no place inside the government and the judicial system. The courts are to be basing their decisions on the laws in place not the ten commandments. Furthermore, the ten commandments are outdated.
