One of Montgomery 10 Commandments rally organizers speaks on court decisions

The Reverend Rob Schenck, author of a book advocating for the public display of the Ten Commandments and founder of the National Ten Commandments Project in Washington, DC. released this statement following the filing of opinions today by the US Supreme Court in two Ten Commandments cases:

"In regard to Van Orden v. Perry--we're grateful that God has heard the prayers of so many Americans and that common sense is returning to the US Supreme Court. The average American has known all along that there's noting wrong with displaying these timeless words, but it's taken this long for the Supreme Court to catch up. Perhaps we are seeing a turning away of judicial hostility towards America's Judeo-Christian heritage. We pray it is only a sign of better things to come.

"As to the Kentucky case--the court did affirm that not all displays of the Ten Commandments are unconstitutional and affirmed the Constitutionality of the display within the US Supreme Court.  While we are disappointed in the court's ruling on the Kentucky case, this fight is not over.  The Supreme Court's ruling left room for the State of Kentucky to be in court again in their fight to display the Ten Commandments."

Mr. Schenck was one of the organizers of large-scale demonstrations in Montgomery, Alabama, against a court order demanding that his good friend, former Alabama Chief Justice, Roy Moore, remove a monument of the Ten Commandments from the Alabama Judicial Building. Mr. Schenck was arrested defending the monument and was detained at the Montgomery County jail.
