Oklahoma just got told it must remove the TEN COMMANDMENTS “Statue” on State Capitol grounds. The link says it all.
Yesterday morning, Conservatives were discussing on television the legitimacy of the ruling, some saying that we need to protect freedom of religion, the First Amendment, etc., and that it should stay. One suggested that private citizens could buy the maybe 10′ square area it sits on and say “it’s on private grounds now.”
HERE’S THE RUB: What’s to stop Muslims from constructing a model of the Koran and purchasing a bigger spot to set it on “privately owned” land? Clearly, this buying land isn’t the point, either. The point is:
If Christians insist on the 10 Commandments being there, how CAN they stop Hindus and Buddhists and Muslims from putting their koran (or whatever) up? CAN THEY BE STOPPED?
I saw this coming years and years ago; If WE insist, we open the door to THEM.
UPDATE: Well, after I’d written this yesterday morning, Megyn Kelly covered this last night, made exactly my point about “If we keep OURS there, surely THEY have to be there, too” and, lo and behold, she had a satanist on saying that a representation of the devil ought to be next to the Ten Commandments, too. And, it was a satanist who drove a car into the original Ten Commandments display and destroyed it, prompting someone else to pay for reinstalling the thing.
Got any thoughts on this? Is there any way to protect the Christian representation and not allow others?
