Ten Commandment Projects Thwart ACLU

Sunday, 27 Dec 2009 09:13 AM

By David A. Patten

When ACLU officials bullied Duluth, Minn., into removing its Ten Commandments display, it looked like another victory in the organization's ongoing crusade to make America a secular nation.

Imagine the ACLU's chagrin, however, when the single memorial soon was replaced by four new ones at various locations -- and each larger than the original.

The Project Moses group that provided those new monuments -- as well as hundreds more like them on display throughout the nation -- erects its engraved marble Ten Commandments displays on private property such as churches and synagogues. There, the 5-foot 4-inch-tall monuments stand proudly where the ACLU is powerless to interfere.

"We support those groups fighting for the right to display the 10 commandments on public property," Project Moses Executive Director Joe Worthing tells Newsmax. "However, we believe that if the first place someone sees the Ten Commandments is at the county courthouse, that's probably why they are there. If we are truly serious about changing the moral direction the country is going in, it has to start by getting these viewed on a regular basis."

Since April 2004, Project Moses (ProjectMoses.com) has erected nearly 500 monuments in 42 states and two Canadian provinces.

But that pales compared to its ambitious goals for the years ahead:
  • It seeks to display for public viewing no fewer than 1,000 of the monuments per year.
  • Each year, it hopes to put 300,000 marble Ten Commandments plaques in homes and offices annually, to help fund the program.
  • The ultimate prize: raising enough money to build a National Judeo-Christian Memorial to Moses and the Ten Commandments in Washington D.C.
"With Project Moses," Worthing says, "people concerned about losing our moral underpinnings are waking up and taking a stand for God's law at their places of worship and their children's private schools."
