Ten Commandments plaque torn down in Ohio by unhinged Democrat lawmaker

Express.co.uk reports: The Freedom From Religious Foundation (FFRF) said the Ten Commandments display “violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment” and it should not be displayed as it prohibits the worship of other gods”.

The letter also said: “The government has no business telling citizens which God they must have, or that they have any God at all.”

The group welcomed the plaque removal and said that the park can now be a welcome space for all people.

FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor said: “We commend the city for taking swift action to correct this violation.

“Removing the bible plaque ensures that Murphy Park can be a welcoming space to all citizens.”

CEO of the Barnabas Fund, which works for persecuted Christians, Hendrik Storm told Express.co.uk the city should “reconsider its decision” as the Ten Commandments are simply a “basis of morality”.

Mr Storm said: “The Barnabas Fund is saddened to hear of the city of Steubenville, Ohio, removing a plaque of the Ten Commandments following pressure from a pressure group, Freedom from Religion Foundation.

“The United States of America was founded upon and guided by Judeo-Christian principles and these form the moral basis of the American Constitution.

“Furthermore the Ten Commandments were well-known by all the founding fathers, and were assumed to be the basis of morality, and not an endorsement of religion by the State.

“Consequently it was etched in many places in the building that houses the US Supreme Court. Laws cannot be passed requiring particular religious beliefs as per the Constitution, but this does not negate having a basis of morality anchored in the Ten Commandments.

“We urge the city to reconsider its decision.”

Earlier this year, a Minnesota courthouse removed a plaque outline God’s laws following from a complaint from the same organization.

States Propose Orwellian Law Mandating State Home Invasion On Home-School Families

(TeaParty.org) – Lawmakers in some US states have proposed legislation that would require home visits for families with homeschooled children, posing a terrifying threat to parental authority and freedom in general.

Iowa HF 272 requires homeschool families who do not report to their school district in conducting their home education to submit to “health and safety visits” quarterly by “the board of directors of a school district.”

If parents decline, the proposed law says, “the juvenile court or district court upon a showing of probable cause may authorize the person making the home visit to enter the home and interview or observe the child.”

The law doesn’t explain why a school district would conduct “health and safety visits,” nor is “probable cause” defined.

But the party performing the visit on behalf of the school district would be a mandatory reporter, and the district can collaborate on the mandated home visits with the Department of Human Services, which in turn can collaborate with the state’s Department of Education.

A similar bill calling for a home investigation of homeschool families was recently introduced in Illinois. The visits there would be performed by the Child Protective Service Unit of the Department of Children and Family Services.

Iowa state Rep. Mary Mascher, a Democrat, introduced the bill, which is one of two introduced thus far during this legislative session requiring home visits for homeschool families.

Public schools do not exist to determine the “health and safety” of a child, they exist to provide children with an education.

In fact, plenty of public schools pose serious risks to the “health and safety” of children, whether that be increased risk to seasonal and contagious illness or the incidents of violent crime that plague the nation’s inner city schools.

This law is eerily reminiscent of the socialist systems many lawmakers in Washington would like to mimic here at home. There is nothing more authoritative than the state forcing their way into the home.

Homeschooling is a way a rapidly growing number of parents have found to combat the state-sponsored ideological indoctrination taking place in the public school system, and these authoritarians can’t stand that parents are finding a way to fight back and take their children’s educations, and minds.
