In response to the article entitled “Christ and the
Constitution,” I would like to point out a few fundamental errors.
I would first like to address the title. The Ten Commandments were
given to use quite a while before the son of God (Jesus Christ).
The writer of this article seems to forget that the Christian
religion is not the only religion that finds faith in the Ten
Commandments. Obviously, the majority of U.S. citizens who would
wish to have the monument stay are Christian, but I think it is
more important to look at the Ten Commandments verses religion.
It is written that God was the creator of the Ten Commandments.
God brought his power down from heaven and carved them out of
stone, keeping in mind that Jesus Christ was far from making his
appearance. Now let us look at who created religion, man. It was
not God (the father) who created religion and it was certainly not
Jesus Christ. I am hardly saying that the belief of any God should
be forced upon anyone; citizens need to make that choice for
themselves. I, however, do not see why the monument was such a
large issue. Are people that intolerant of God? I am just waiting
for someone to put a restraining order on God; “religious doctrines
are not allowed within 50 feet of this individual.”
Maybe I am just unable of comprehending why citizens feel so
threatened; the Christian religion is not going to be taking over
our country anytime soon. It’s ironic when people say this country
was not founded on God, when God created our world.
