A decision has been made concerning the ten commandments monument on the grounds of the Texas State Capitol in Austin.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled the monument in Austin is constitutional but a framed display of the commandments in a Kentucky Courthouse is not. The ruling hinged on context and intent. The Texas statue is on display with sixteen other monuments in a historical setting.
"It had neither the purpose nor did it send the message that the state of Texas was endorsing religion, rather it was merely recognizing the role the ten commandments have played in development of our laws and civilization," said Attorney General Greg Abbott.
Justices ruled the Kentucky monument was not constitutional because its intent was to promote religion.
