Announcing a new development in an historic legal case.

An appeal has been filed in Ryan v Bisig, in which appellant Ryan disputes the final judgment of the lower court, that his constitutional right not to be required to send his child to a religious school was circumvented by the trial judge.  This appears to be a case of first impression in Kentucky on interpretation of Section 5 of the Kentucky Constitution as it related to Ryan’s right not to be required to send his child to a Roman Catholic religious school to which he is conscientiously opposed.

Kentucky HB 70 Is Law After Legislature Overrides Governor's Veto!

The Camp Quest lease of a Baptist summer camp spurs legislative efforts in Kentucky to exempt churches from public accommodation laws.

House Bill 70, which allows churches to discriminate against humanists, gays, and other minorities, passed the Kentucky Legislature, was vetoed by the Kentucky Governor, but then the veto was overridden by the Kentucky Legislature, so it became state law on July 15, 2000!

TEN COMMANDMENTS FOR FREE

GET GOOD FOR NOTHING

There is a great pooling of ignorance just now over the so-called "Ten Commandments," found in the "Holy Bible," with many holding the incorrect belief that they form the basis of the laws of our nation. This is not true of course because our nation is a democracy and democracy is not mentioned in the Ten Commandments or anywhere else in the Bible.

Unfortunately, many also hold the dangerously incorrect view that humans cannot live a moral life without this set of rules, and a few seem willing to use somewhat uncivilized means to insure that those rules are posted where everyone can see and benefit from them, no matter what the law says.

So, to help save the world, we here present the Decalogue in its entirety. Numbering, absent in the Bible, has been supplied in the traditional fashion.

Those who feel they cannot refrain from robbing, murdering, raping, stealing, etc. without this Bronze Age code to guide them can now have their very own copy by printing out this thoughtfully offered document in ready- to-print-and-frame form, which can be easily enlarged or reduced as desired.

Readers can now "Hang Ten" everywhere they can find wall space to do so.

If everyone has their own copy to read or worship, and every child has one to put on the front of their school binder, we should not need to have further fuss over such debated issues as unlawful postings in schools, court houses, and other public places. Some may want to paper their homes with them.

And, if the theory of those who want them displayed everywhere is correct, then crime, immorality, and all nature of bad things should soon disappear.

Readers can print all of the copies they want and distribute them freely. (pdf version)
