Ten Commandments: Supreme Court Opinion and Briefs with Indexes
Nova Publishers, 2006 - 172 páginas
One of the key founding principles of the United States of America was separation of church and state. Keeping them separate, however, has been a non-trivial problem from the outset of the republic. It is difficult to determine if banning statues of the 'Ten Commandments' should merit the attention of the high court, when there are so many blatant examples of real attacks on America's principles going on, but perhaps because it is so visible, the people are being treated to this presentation. Many say 'leave the Ten Commandments statues alone and watch the folks who are trying to plant a bomb under it instead'. And the Supreme Court itself is divided on the issue as is evident from this book. If there is an issue here, it is probably a blue versus red state issue.
