Rather than talk about the value the religion, it might be more interesting to talk about the current case before the Supreme Court. Should they put the beat-down on the judges who posted the ten-commandments in their courthouses? Should the prominent Decaloge display in Texas be torn down? You can guess what the New York Times Op-Ed piece (registration required) has to say. But consider this: The 1st amendment says that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." AFAIK, no one is making a law mandating that "I am the one true god". This is simply a display. Would banning a display be prohibiting free speech?
