ACLJ | The Parade of Horribles
Imagine if everyone exercised their religious liberty. What a horrible world that would be, right? Sekulow asserts that the Satanists and the Wiccans already have a right to meet for religious purposes. This is the same Jay Sekulow who neglected to mention that the Mojave Desert Cross case began when the federal government denied a Buddhist's request to erect a shrine on federally owned land in the vicinity of the cross. Instead, Sekulow carried on as if the horrible, godless people of America attacked the Christian Cross without provocation. Again with the borderline dishonesty.
ACLJ | Context of the Ten Commandments
I find Sekulow's assessment of the proper context within which to display the Ten Commandments very interesting. I thought he was going to say that if you were teaching theology and you have up quotes and laws from other religious texts, then it should be no trouble to post the Ten. Instead he believes there should be no trouble with the law if the Ten are posted alongside the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence. This is an example of the belief that the Ten Commandments is among America's foundational documents. Despite its influence among our nation's founders, I would not categorize it that way.
