TEN COMMANDMENTS AND MARRIAGE WILL RISE OR FALL TOGETHER
Vision America expressed dismay at yesterdays ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th. Circuit, which held that a Ten Commandments poster in an Ohio courtroom is unconstitutional.
The appeals court ruled that James DeWeese, a judge of the Common Pleas Court of Richland County, could not display the Decalogue in his courtroom.
Vision America, which has waged an unrelenting struggle for the right to acknowledge God publicly, said the ruling was another chapter in the federal judiciarys war on Americas Biblical heritage.
Said Vision America President Rick Scarborough: Its hardly possible to walk into a government building in Washington, D.C., without seeing some reference to the Ten Commandments or the Bible.
Scarborough noted: Above the main entrance to the Supreme Court Building is a relief of Moses holding The Ten Commandments. Tablets, with the Roman numerals 1 through 10, are engraved on the oak door leading to the courtroom. According to the 6th. Circuit, the U.S. Supreme Court is violating the Constitution on a daily basis.
Federal courts have tortured and twisted the meaning of First Amendment to such an extent that it would be unrecognizable to the Founding Fathers who were, almost to a man, devout Christians, Scarborough charged.
The Vision America president said its significant that on the same day the 6th Circuit Court issued its edict against the Ten Commandments, the United States Senate voted against the family, by failing to pass the Federal Marriage Amendment to the Constitution.
Faith and family will stand or fall together, Scarborough declared. The God who gave us The Ten Commandments established marriage as the union of a man and a woman. The left including the judicial left is dedicated to eradicating Americas Judeo-Christian heritage to pave the way for the brave new world of secular humanism, including homosexual marriage.
Vision America has been actively involved in defense of public displays of The Ten Commandments and in fighting to preserve marriage. For more information, visit our websites www.visionamerica.org and www.restorethecommandments.com.
