Supreme Court to consider Ten Commandments monuments

by Amanda Luker

Oct. 14, 2004 – The US Supreme Court said Tuesday it would consider whether displaying the Ten Commandments in government buildings is unconstitutional. The court has been reluctant to tackle the issue of separation of church and state for almost 25 years. Displays of the Ten Commandments can be found in town squares and courthouses, including the hearing room of the high Court itself. The justices took on two cases, one from Kentucky and one from Texas, in which Ten Commandment displays were challenged. Lower courts sided against the displays in Kentucky and in favor of them in Texas.
