Constitutionality of Ten Commandments Questioned

Is it constitutional to display the Ten Commandments on public property? For the first time in 25 years, the U.S. Supreme Court is trying to answer that question.

The case centers on a monument on the Texas Capitol grounds in Austin and Ten Commandments displays in Kentucky courthouses. Demonstrators from both sides of the issues gathered outside the Supreme Court in Washington D.C. Wednesday. That's where Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott testified on the state's behalf. Abbot says, "Having served as a supreme court justice myself on the Texas Supreme Court, I know first hand it is a losing game to try to predict which way a judge may lean or what their inclination is based on their questioning."

The justices are expected to come back with their ruling in the next 90 days.
