Lawmakers Vote for Ten Commandments

Last week, the Tennessee State House of Representatives unanimously passed a resolution, 98-0, urging each county to permit the Ten Commandments to be posted in their respective courthouses. H.R. 107 was authored by Rep. Todd Watson and marks a defiant stand against attempts in recent years to exclude references to Christianity from courthouses across the U.S. Part of the resolution reads: “Throughout American’s rich history both the citizenry and their elected officials alike have deeply respected the Ten Commandments, its profound influence on the formation of American legal thought and its fundamental place in the history of law and government.” In Louisiana, the state House voted on Monday to approve placing a Ten Commandments monument on the state capitol grounds in Baton Rouge.
