Supreme Court Hears Kentucky Case
Washington, D.C. – The case surrounding the Ten Commandments postings in two Kentucky courthouses will make its way to the U. S. Supreme Court this week.
On Wednesday, justices will consider whether the displays in McCreary and Pulaski Counties constitute unconstitutional government establishment of religion. The case also includes a similar monument in Austin, Texas on the state capitol grounds.
Many conservatives warn that if the states lose the ruling would force the removal of similar objects from memorials and public spaces across America.
Dozens of demonstrators are expected for rallies and prayers outside the courthouse in Washington while the case is being argued inside. A decision isn't expected until June.
