America at Large

The Ten Commandments, Religious Convictions, and 'The Greater Good"

MONTGOMERY, AL -- As of Nov.13, The Holy Bible will be the only place Alabama residents will be able to see the Ten Commandments. A state disciplinary court removed Roy S. Moore, Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court who displayed granite Ten Commandments monument outside a federal building from office Thursday.

Federal Authorities had removed the monument earlier, bringing an end to a bitter struggle that began in August when Moore was first asked to move the monument.

So for now, he's out of a job. The council has even given thoughts to even disbarring Moore.

There are many ways Americans can look at the results of this. At one side, the Christians can say that Moore never turned his back on God, and he never denied his existence. On the other hand, if you're looking at it from a social standpoint..What about the Muslims? Non-believers? Buddhists? This country is known as a "melting pot," therefore, you just can't isolate one religion to portray in U.S. Government facilities.

Maybe the council thought that this would open the floodgates for monuments of the Koran, or the Menorah. What Americans need to realize is that we must respect everyone, and if our convictions affect others, then we must find a way to work around it. Maybe he should have put a Ten Commandments poster in his office, right beside the family pictures, the college degree, and any other award he may have won and maybe no one would have said anything.

Hey, we've all worked in, or know someone who has worked in a cubicle at work, so you know how one could look-cluttered with all your stuff, party pics, calendars, a Far Side comic strip and your address book.

What I'm trying to say is that we all have our own beliefs, and it's only when we indirectly impose them on others, (I say that because I don't think he was trying to do anything else) then maybe we should make a change in ourselves for the greater good.

So when you comment on the Ten Commandments ruling, think about it, even if our currency does have engraved on it "In God We Trust."

Is it political hypocrisy? or a decision that moves with the change in times? Either way, everyone will have their own opinion and no one will not be wrong, because there are many answers to justify your thoughts.

What do you think?

You can now email me at Leave your full name, age, and where you're from when you give your comments. I will be sure to respond in my next column. Good, bad, I welcome it all.
