POSTING TEN COMMANDMENTS DRAWS VOTES

On February 22, the Tennessee Senate approved by a vote of 27 to 1 a resolution urging homes, businesses, schools and places of worship to post the Ten Commandments. The vote was a response to an opinion by the State Attorney General that the measure is unconstitutional.

Two days earlier, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear a case that challenged the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to keep a monument engraved with the Ten Commandments. The Colorado court said that the monument, which is placed in a public park near the state Capitol, “does not have the purpose or effect of endorsing religion.”
