CWA says Supreme Court should uphold Ten Commandments displays

.- Concerned Women for America (CWA) is cautiously optimistic that the U.S. Supreme Court will affirm the constitutionality of public displays of the Ten Commandments along with other symbols of law on government property. "The Supreme Court should be able to see straight through the bogus arguments of special interest groups whose only motivation appears to be erasing any recognition of God from our public life," said Jan LaRue, CWA's chief counsel.

"Setting the Ten Commandments on public display is an acknowledgement of the cultural and legal history of the United States," she added

The CWA hopes the court will affirm the 5th Circuit's ruling in Van Orden v. Perry, and reverse the ruling by the Sixth Circuit in the McCreary case.

“If it fails to do so, the next sound we hear may be that of a hammer and chisel on the Ten Commandments in the Court's own building," LaRue concluded.
