This is not about the Free Exercise clause. It is about the Establishment Clause. Why not just read the opinion?

Well ok, what law was being written by Moore then? The First Amendment only seems to place limits on Congress to keep them from creating a state religion, like the one they fled from in England. A reading of some material from the Founders would prove that this is indeed the case.

Uh huh. And abortion is about "privacy". And slavery was about Blacks only being 2/3 human. How convenient. Supreme Court decisions, and Appeals Court decisions, are not always reflective of reality, they can say whatever they please, isolate a clause they chose to focus on, and exclude other pertinent clauses they don't want to look at. Two hundred years of American history clearly reveal that the Ten Commandments and other religious declarations, such as prayer, have been posted, etched, engraved, read, spoken and declared in government buildings in every State in the Union. The new-age Court decisions are about the stripping away of previous norms. In this way they will eventually force their own beliefs on all Americans by banning the public expression of our beliefs. We do, after all, live and express our lives out in the public every day. And have you noticed that the more religion is banned the deeper its antithesis, such as pornography, homosexuality, and drug abuse enters in to replace it? This is a spiritual warfare going on here. All these disgusting laws that abolish God from the public accomplish is to foster the opinion that God, and those who love Him, are somehow evil, and must not be seen in public lest they cause harm to some non-believer. It's all B.S.
