According to Michael Novak of American Enterprise, the founding fathers would approve of a monument to the 10 Commandments being placed outside a judicial building.
Novak testified as an expert witness at the 10 Commandments trial in Alabama last week. He was called by Chief Justice Roy Moore, who placed a monument of the commandments at the state Supreme Court building.
"I point out that the Senate of the United States, the House, the President, have all made statements like this or actions like this that
do it in other branches of government," said Novak. "But it is the judiciary which is especially charged with protecting these rights. Therefore, the ground of them and to recognize what that ground is."
A lawsuit brought by the ACLU and Southern Poverty Law Center is trying to force removal of the monument. The presiding judge has not yet issued his ruling.
