Ten Commandments Resurrected by Federal Court

Friday, 19 August 2005 12:00 AM

Brian Fahling, senior trial attorney for the American Family Association Center for Law & Policy, said the court "found the Plattsmouth monument was a permissible use of the text of the Ten Commandments to acknowledge the role of religion in our nation's heritage."

In its ruling, the court also observed, "Although the text of the Ten Commandments has undeniable religious significance, simply having religious content or promoting a message consistent with a religious doctrine does not run afoul of the Establishment Clause."

The ACLU brought the lawsuit claiming the monument violated the Establishment Clause. The case is ACLU v. Plattsmouth, Nebraska, No. 02-2444.
