The junior high school has had a stone copy of the Ten Commandments in front of the school since 1957.  Apparently it’s been offending people for almost 60 years.

A Pennsylvania junior high school is moving a Ten Commandments stone monolith from its campus after a $64,000 court battle resulted in a judge ruling the display unconstitutional.

commandments“It doesn’t matter what the cost was, it was a fight that needed to be fought,” David Show, organizer with the group Thou Shall Not Move, told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “That’s something that should not be a problem in our schools.”

The Tribune-Review headline put the fight into the proper secular perspective.

In case you were wondering, religion apparently no longer has a place in American life.  Unless you’re a Muslim.
