"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Protesting the Ten Commandments

Suddenly a burst of anti-religion, atheist beliefs are attempting to trump long standing displays of the Ten Commandments on government property. The Ten Commandments are part of the foundation of our legal codes. President Harry Truman said, "The fundamental basis of this nation's laws was given to Moses on the Mount." Religion is a key part of our national identity. Around the country legal fights are taking place over monuments recognizing the Ten Commandments. In Alabama the Supreme Court Justice was removed from his position for his refusal to have a monument of these commandments removed from government property. Today in the Supreme Court another case is being argued of a similar monument in Texas donated in 1961. It is significant to note how our culture has changed through the years. Monuments which have reasonably stood the test of time as secular are now under fire. It is also significant to note the carvings of Moses and the Decalogue appear throughout the Court building, including some 43 times in the very chambers of the United States Supreme Court.
