    "The real reason we can't have the Ten Commandments in the courthouse: You cannot post "Thou shalt not steal', "Thou shalt not commit adultery', and 'Thou shalt not lie' in a building full of lawyers, judges, and politicians. It creates a hostile work environment."

    That's like saying punishment doesn't deter crime. I don't agree that that's the real reason.

    The real reason for not displaying the Ten Commandments is because "they" don't want to be accountable to God.

    No God. No Truth. No absolute standards of conduct. No accountability.

    What a shock some folks are in for! :'(

    I think the real reason was to keep government's paws off the freedom of religion.
