VA School System Will Repost 10 Commandments; Had Removed Them in Dec. Due to ACLU Threats

A southwest Virginia school system has decided to repost copies of the Ten Commandments in its schools as part of a display of historical documents, the Christian Broadcast Network website reports today (June 9, 2011).

Giles County Schools removed the displays in December 2010, after the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) threatened legal action.

The ACLU says that posting copies of the Ten Commandments violates the separation of church and state, and that it will file a lawsuit.

Nonetheless, the Giles County School Board voted 3 to 2 to put the commandments and other documents back up.
