Can you imagine this happening here, in the United States? A person getting arrested on Federal felony charges for displaying the Ten Commandments? How much longer before Christians will be worshipping in the catacombs again? We need a President like Emperor Constantine, who will make Christianity legal again.
Can this be appealed to the SCOTUS? I am not learned in the ways of court appeals. (Not that it will do any good, the way things are going.)
I really do think that it is time for what might be termed "civil disobedience". The left likes that term, let them feel it from the other side, coming at them. If the 10 Commandments aren't allowed, maybe citizens can come daily and nail up new ones, one after another.
He will surely file an appeal. The SCOTUS gets to decide whether they want to take or not. They won't touch this one. Then it is over, and the decision of the 11th stands.

Oh, by the way - citizens can do it (as long as the state doesn't mind them nailing things up on state property). The state can't do it. And if the state lets citizens put them up, it can't pick and choose items from one religion to allow and not allow others.
This isn't about the Ten Commandments. It is about the state preferring one view over another.
