Cool, now that the Supreme Court of the US is majority conservative, and religious.

You do realize that this is in no way a "christian" church that wants to display this monument. If they allow this monument, then all others will need to be allowed, including pagan, Islamic, even atheist monuments.

When it comes to public property, it's all religious iconography allowed, or nothing.

What is wrong with the world today is fundamentalist Christians and Muslim thinking they should be able to push their agenda onto everyone.

How do you think the people of Pleasant Grove would do if a Monument pushing the laws of a Muslim fundamentalist religion was placed in this park....?

Religions were a good thing until the became the "Perfect Self Rationalization" for a cult mentality that thinks They and only They have the right invisible Sky Daddy.

If the world does end in a global war it will be caused by Fundamentalist Christians and Fundamentalist Muslims who never found the ability to live together because of their cult mentality

You really should take up reading the articles you're commenting on because once again you're staking out a position that we all know that you really don't support based on what's actually said in the story. I can only imagine the high holy heck you'd be raising if the Church of Summom wanted to erect a monument to the "Seven Aphorisms of Summum" right there in your little backwater of Florida. They may be religious, but about as non-Christian as you're going to get.

I do not have a problem with religious expression, or the display of monuments donated to the city/county/state by private citizens that reflect their private beliefs, as being an example of the government allowing the free exercise of religion.

Government and government properties are not supposed to be religion free, just not advocating/supporting any religion, and not stopping any religious expressions.

I am sorry to burst all of your bubbles with your thinking that this is just another situation where you can bash religion...but it's not. Read up a little before making your statements on an issue you know OBVIOUSLY know nothing about. This case has to do with a park that made a statement YEARS ago saying that this particular park would only allow monuments that reflected the history of the town or had been donated by service groups that had contributed to the city and it's history. A group named the Eagles donated the monument with the 10 commandments on it years ago and was accepted because they had been apart of the cities history and served the city, NOT because of it's religious content. THAT is why that monument is there and some random group that comes in and says they want their monument there, who hasn't contributed to the city and has nothing to do with the city, didn't receive permission.
There. Now that you know a little bit more on the subject,and you can see that there is more to it, you can leave your religious biases for another case.
