The Supreme Court today issued it’s long-anticipated ruling in McCreary County vs. ACLU which dealt with whether displaying the 10 Commandments in a public building such as a courthouse is constitutional.
While the display was disallowed in the case before the Court, the justices determined that some displays (such as the one in their own court) are constitutional while others are not. The Court, rather than providing a clear guideline for such displays, said that they needed to be evaluated on a case by case basis.
This will probably continue to be a contentious issue until the Court provides clear guidelines on what constitutes an appropriate display under the Establishment Clause. It’s a safe assumption the ACLU use this ruling as a springboard for intimidating other governments to remove their 10 Commandments displays.
