Courthouse Celebrates Return of Ten Commandments

An eight-year legal battle ended with the return of the Ten Commandments to the courthouse in a Kentucky county last week. An overflow crowd at the county courthouse sang “Amazing Grace” and “God Bless America” to celebrate. The ceremony was less than a week after the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of appeals struck down a 2008 injunction by U.S. District Judge Joseph McKinley barring the Ten Commandments from public property on the grounds that its primary intent was religious. Two citizens and the American Civil Liberties Union sued over the display. []
