    An update from Oklahoma : Oklahoma law passed, 37 to 9, had a few liberals in the mix, an amendment to place the Ten Commandments on the front entrance to the state capitol. The feds in D.C., along with the ACLU, said it would be a mistake. Hey this is a conservative state, based on Christian values...! HB 1330 Guess what.......... Oklahoma did it anyway. Oklahoma recently passed a law in the state to incarcerate all illegal immigrants, and ship them back to where they came from unless they want to get a green card and become an American citizen....

    New York—On a June 29, 1994 show of Rush Limbaugh The Television Show, Rush listed the fourteen commandments of the religious left. All were hilarious, but all were so true. Below are the 14 Commandments of the Religious Left, as ranked by Rush Limbaugh and in no particular order: Thou shalt have no other God except thyself; after all, it’s thy self-esteem that counts. If thee don’t love thee, who will? Thou shalt not make any graven images out of any substances which cannot be recycled. Thou shalt not take the name of liberals in criticism, including feminists, racial minorities,...

    'Aish HaTorah ^ | Not dated | Rabbi Nechemia Coopersmith and Rabbi Moshe Zeldman
    What support is there for the claim that God spoke to all the Jewish people at the foot of Mount Sinai?Who did God give the Torah to at Mount Sinai? Most people reply, "God gave the Torah to Moses." And what were the Jewish people doing while Moses was receiving the Torah? "Worshipping the Golden Calf." Correct answers -- but NOT according to the Bible. The above answers come from Cecil B. DeMille's classic film, "The Ten Commandments." Amazing the impact one movie can have on the Jewish education of generations of Jews. It's a great film, but DeMille should...

    Tonight begins the Jewish Holiday of Shavuot the anniversary of when God Gave us the Ten Commandments. Along with Passover and Sukkot, Shavout is one of the three major Jewish festivals. In biblical times, Jews used to leave their homes and travel to Jerusalem and the Holy Temple during the three festivals to make special offerings to God. There is an Old Story about a religious school Gan (kindergarten) teacher talking to her students about Shavuot. "OK Class, who knows why we celebrate Shavout?" "OOOH, OOOH I know," said little Karen, "Shavout is when we light candles and celebrate the...

    Dr. E. T. Hiscox, author of the Baptist Manual, wrote the following which was taken from a photostatic copy of a notarized statement by Dr. Hiscox: “There WAS and IS a command to keep holy the Sabbath day, but that Sabbath day was NOT Sunday. It will however be readily said, and with some show of triumph, that the Sabbath WAS TRANSFERRED from the Seventh to the First day of the week, with all its duties, privileges and sanctions. Earnestly desiring information on this subject, which I have studied for many years, I ask, where can the record of...

    Washington, D.C.—And when it had come to pass, Obama went up to Capitol Hill. There, he toiled for 100 days and prayed, hearing the voice of the Lord thy God. And the Lord thy God said, “I am the Lord thy God. Go ye unto the White House and take these new Ten Commandments. For Americans have become exceedingly wicked, and let these corporations know that they are to let my people go!” And Obama took the new Ten Commandments, and Republican congressmen fell to their knees in shame; then Obama went unto the White House. There, he called the...
  • Roy Moore, Alabama's "Ten Commandments Judge," Says He's Likely to Run for Governor

    Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore says he's very likely to run for governor again next year. Moore told the Associated Press that he plans to announce his decision June 1. That's when he could start raising money for the Republican primary in June 2010. "Right now I'm very inclined to enter. I feel there is a need, and I feel I'm well qualified for the position," he said. Moore, 62, garnered just 33 percent of the GOP primary vote when he ran against Gov. Bob Riley in 2006. But Riley can't run again in 2010. In that...

    “Aware of an Idol” (The Ten Commandments)As we noted, today we begin the season of Lent. In church history, and particularly in our Lutheran tradition, there are several major themes associated with Lent, which often form the basis for services within this season. For example, penitence, repentance, is certainly a Lenten theme, and especially is that so on this first day of Lent, Ash Wednesday. Another Lenten focus is the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ, drawn from all four gospels or from just one gospel. Tracking the Passion narrative often is done over a series of midweek Lenten services--we...
  • Court Allows Religious Monument

    02/25/2009 7:26:37 AM PST · by green iguana · 15 replies · 841+ views
    Without dissent, the Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday that governments may accept permanent religious monuments in public parks without violating the Constitution. Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr., wrote for the Court in Pleasant Grove City v. Summum (07-665). Such a monument, whether government financed or privately donated, must be considered “government speech,” conveying a message that it wishes to get out about “esthetics, history, and local culture.” Four Justices filed concurring opinions, representing the views of six Justices, thus requiring their views to be taken into account in determining just when governments may put up such monuments on public property.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday that a Utah city can refuse to put a religious group's monument in a public park near a similar Ten Commandments display. The justices unanimously sided with the city of Pleasant Grove, which had said a ruling for the religious group would mean public parks across the country would have to allow privately donated monuments that express different views from those already on display. The Summun religious group, founded in Salt Lake City in 1975, sought in 2003 to erect a monument to the tenets of its faith, called the...

    Nativity scenes made of real straw. Wise Men 2 feet tall. Menorahs bigger than a human being.   Holiday display in Teaneck. In many North Jersey municipalities, those sacred symbols can be found at the same place people get dog licenses, pay taxes and apply for building permits — town hall.  The display of religious items on public property has long been a charged discussion in American communities, and the case law governing holiday displays is still murky enough to confound local governments trying to create a festive atmosphere for residents.* Fair Lawn for years just lit a holiday tree....

    News bulletins every day abound with stories of moral unrest somewhere in the world. The Columbine high-school massacre in America a few years ago focused world attention on a once-average community which suffered the outrage of brutal murders. The atrocities that resulted in the deaths of thousands in the World Trade Center terrorist acts brought to light how wicked human beings can be towards one another. Society’s laws are being violated at an ever-increasing rate, as evidenced by the rapid expansion of police forces and proliferation of all manner of ‘security’ devices and services to protect life and property. Clearly,...

    Washington Pest ^ | 11/12/08 | Jerry Markon
    The way Summum tells it, when Moses first came down from Mount Sinai, he didn't have the Ten Commandments in his hand: He was holding the Seven Aphorisms. The Aphorisms are the guiding principles of Summum, a religious organization that operates from a pyramid in Salt Lake City and practices mummification. They are so important to Summum that the group's founder, Summum "Corky" Ra, asked that they be displayed in a public park in Pleasant Grove, Utah, near a Ten Commandments monument. The city said no, triggering a court fight that today wound up before the Supreme Court. The justices...

    Boycott The New York Times ^ | November 12, 2008 | Don Feder
    In its relentless drive to secularize our society, The New York Times continues to distort the First Amendment. An editorial in today’s paper notes that the Supreme Court is hearing arguments involving Pleasant Grove City, Utah, which has a Ten Commandments monument in a public park but refuses to allow a cult called Summum to erect its own memorial. Because the City “elevated one religion, traditional Christianity, over another, Summum,” it violated the First Amendment’s prohibition against an Establishment of Religion, The Times maintains. “The founders regarded this sort of religious preference as so odious that they included a specific...

    A little more than four years ago, Brandi Swindell, Bryan Fischer and a group called Generation Life hoped to stop the city council of Boise, Idaho, from removing a Ten Commandments monument that had stood in a city park since 1965. The city council accepted no public input into its decision, so Generation Life was compelled to file a lawsuit seeking a temporary restraining order on the city's action. Generation Life lost that case, and even though they later took another suit to the Idaho Supreme Court, winning the right to have the citizens of Boise vote on the monument's...

    Thousands of stone Ten Commandments monuments on highly visible properties in communities across the nation, millions of smaller plaques in Christian and Jewish homes, and a massive bronze showing the biblical image of Moses holding the stones on which God wrote… The target of the ACLU? Nope. Thanks to the ACLU! Joe Worthing, the executive director for Project Moses, says his organization, only a few years old, is well on its way to reaching many of its goals of placing Ten Commandments monuments all over the nation, and it's because of a complaint from the ACLU. The ministry was launched...
