Atheist Forces School to Ditch Ten Commandments Monument

A Pennsylvania school district capitulated to the demands of a militant atheist who filed a federal lawsuit demanding the district remove a Ten Commandments monument erected on a public high school campus. New Kensington-Arnold School District agreed to give the massive monument the heave-ho, ending a lawsuit filed in 2012 by self-avowed atheist Marie Schaub. Ms. Schaub claimed the 6-foot-tall stone monument posted outside Valley High School was a religious symbol and therefore was a violating of the U.S. Constitution.

“It’s unfortunate that many people in my community don’t understand or appreciate the separation of church and state, but I hope this settlement serves as an important lesson,” she told the Valley News Dispatch. Ms. Schaub also claimed the monument was offensive to herself and her daughter. I can only imagine which commandment she found to be more offensive? If I was a betting man I’d say it was either the one about coveting thy neighbor’s ass or the one about graven images. Anyway, the school district has 30 days to extricate the monument from the front lawn — and it also has to fork over $164,000 in legal fees.

“We’re very pleased,” Freedom From Religion Foundation attorney Patrick Elliott told the Valley News Dispatch. “It means that the Constitution is being followed by the school district.” FFRF is a group of perpetually offended atheists, agnostics and free-thinkers based in Wisconsin. They intentionally bully and intimidate small towns and communities in their quest to eradicate Christianity from the public marketplace. They are truly an unpleasant bunch of people, folks. Supt. John Pallone told the local newspaper they agreed to settle the lawsuit “in order to take the high road.”

Hopefully these idiotic decisions will be reversed under trump. Where the hell in any legislation that broad Christian views which are foundation of the country can't exist on public property? If they are going to go down that road the every effort must be made to ensure that Islam does no get one cent of government money ever.

The constitution reads "freedom of religion". not freedom from religion. Too bad we have so many illiterate judges.

There is absolutly nothing in the U.S. Constitution about the separation of Chruch & State it just prophibits having a established relegion like making school kids read the Koran or practice Sharia Law

By having a monument representing only one or some religions and not others, a public school is showing favor or bias towards said religions. That is the point of a secular institution not having religious monuments, or else members of other religions or sects (like Muslims) could justify a demand to have an Islamic monument built right next to a Christian one. Better to have no religious monuments outside a so-called secular state school.

The constitution reads 'the government shall not establish a religion' like the British King Henry the 8th did. That is totally different to allowing the followers of Allah any public space just because the Christians do. The US is still basically Christian/Judeo country after all. Try and establish a Christian or Jewish community in any Islamic country and the house for you get when it comes to placing monuments or places of worship. Muslims refuse to integrate so let's return the favor and refuse their efforts to convert us.

I am an atheist and I am very much offended by the actions of some who claim to be atheists.
The Ten Commandments is a guide to proper behavior, I do not object to its religious portions and I think it should be publically displayed much more than it is !

The ten commandments may be foundational of Judaism and Christianity but they are not limited to that. If we regard truth/reality as god then the first two make sense, and if we regard love/universal goodwill as the offspring of truth/reality/god then the third makes sense, and the rest are prime codes for good living. The last one, thou shalt not covet (be envious of others), if broken, makes one into a lefty. Leftist anger and hatred is driven by jealousy, so the last commandment is particularly irritating to them. Lefties think they are being righteous by hating those who have more than others. Truth too, is something lefties hate. Leftist psychologists teach there is no such thing as truth, only individual perception. And as there is no truth there is no true goodness, only judgement values. And they don't like the traditional and natural family unit with a male father and female mother, they want that definition changed to include unnatural same sex parents. So it is no wonder that lefties hate the 10 Commandments. Lefties hate truth, genuine goodwill, nature, and are driven by jealousy fuelled hatred.

Lefties are out of touch with reality. They are quite insane.

I find it interesting that as long as there are not too many lefties within a population then lefties may go through life being 99% out of touch with reality and still get by in the world, appearing for the most part like sane people. Reality and those in touch with reality act as a sort of supporting scaffold upon lefties, keeping them upright and appearing normal and even sane. Until on such occasions as lefties obtain unbridled power and get together in great numbers unrestricted. Then they start forcibly oppressing others in thought, speech and action, even mass killing of anyone unlike themselves.
