religious displays in public buildings
The Commandments and the Court

I'm less bothered by government endorsement of religion than by the hypocrisy of having our government buildings shout ''do not kill'' and ''do not bear false witness'' while we start needless wars based on trumped-up evidence.

If government displays of religion had been pushed by Mother Teresa, I might accept them, but they're pushed by people who often contradict the very messages they want prominently displayed.

Such religious displays would actually serve a useful purpose if seen for what they are: not affirmations of righteousness but testaments to hypocrisy.

is there a Creator

The fact that government acknowledges that there is a creator dose not promote a religion. The fact the govetnment has or did have the 10 commandment posted if public buildings does not mean we have to support a particular religion. Are the 10 or at least 9 of the 10 identify laws of the land? Do they not say it is wrong to kill, steal, etc.?
