So what will happen to the 10 Commandments on the door in the Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C.?

The door of the Supreme Court building depicts great events in legal history-- Moses, Hammurabi, Justinian, the Magna Charta, etc. The Ten Commandments are not singled out as representing one true religion, to the exclusion of others. (The 11th Circuit's decision in fact discusses permissible and impermissible displays of the 10 Commandments.) In fact, the Supreme Court doesn't even show the text of the Commandments, only the outlines of the two tablets.

As if that somehow matters. Do you think the numerals represent Clinton's 10 greatest BJs or something?

The Ten Commandments are not a religion at all, nor are they identified as the "one true religion". I wish folks who are so dead set on destroying public knowledge of the Ten Commandments (probably out of their intense hatred of Judaism, the religious tradition that handed them down to the modern world) would keep their terminology straight.
