House of Representatives passed the Ten Commandments (10C) Defense Act Amendment by a vote of 248 to 180. This act called for the 10C to be posted in every public school room, courtroom and government building across our nation.[i] Supporters in Congress claimed that “God’s Laws” formed the basis of the American legal system. . .Yet, posting the 10C is a really bad idea, unless our goal is a medieval Christian theocracy.
