Ten Commandments at Potter Co. Courthouse

NEW remark- 5.28.08

A few people are offended because we have the Ten Commandments
on public display. Well it is time for the rest of us to let the FEW know
it offends most of us to remove all aspects of God from public view. If
the majority of us who belive in God don't start telling the small group
who want us to remove all sighns of God from public display, our money,
our schools, our court houses ect. we will be denying the basic
principles this great country was built on. As we become less willing to
speak up for God he will be less willing to keep us together as a great
country. Many great nations have fallen when they became too corrupt and
denied God. More people believe in God in some form than don't. We better
watch out. I think it is time to offend a few folks.

Past articles:

I am very opposed to Ten Commandments on courthouse lawns. I
think it is a violation of the separation of church and state. In my
opinion it violates the US Constitution.

Religion at Courthouse

I think it's about time for the American people to say enough is
enough to a selected group that has changed so much of our heritage. This
country was built around religion and should continue to do so. Put
religion back into our government, our schools and our homes.

Ten Commandments on Public Property

It is to the shame of the city of Amarillo that we can not have
the Ten Commandments put up on public property. I can assure you there
are enough people in and around this city that would vote to make this
happen. There are more for the Ten Commandments being in our public
buildings then are against it. Gods word says to write His words in stone
so we will not forget them. See below:
"And he(God) gave to Moses, when he had made an end of speaking with him
upon Mount Sinai, the two tables of the testimony, tables of stone,
written with the finger of God" (Ex. 31:18). "And the tables were the work
of God, and the writing was the writing of God, graven upon the tables"
(Ex. 32:16; 34:1, 28).

Further writing was done by Moses:

And Moses wrote this law and gave it to the priests the sons of Levi, who
carried the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and to all the elders of
Israel. And Moses commanded them, "At the end of every seven years ... you
shall read this law before all Israel in their hearing ... that they may
hear and learn to fear the LORD your God, and be careful to do all the
words of this law, and that their children, who have not known it, may
hear and learn to fear the LORD your God...." (Deut. 31:9-13)

One question I want to ask;
Are you sure you want to go against Gods own words?
