On Tuesday, the ACLU of Louisiana submitted a request for public records explaining the nature and purpose of the display.while it is too early to tell what legal action, if any, that the aclu will in this matter we support their entrance into the fray -- albeit for different reasons.
“The taxpayers of Rapides Parish deserve to know that their elected officials will follow the law,” said Marjorie Esman, Executive Director of the ACLU of Louisiana.
“Religion is a matter for individuals and families, not for government. The Parish attorney has advised against this plan, and the Police Jury should follow the advice of its lawyer.” ~ read more

----ORIGINAL POST----gannett/the alexandria daily town talk: "rapides parish police jury votes to display ten commandments in courthouse."
graphic: one year bible blog
resolved that the rapides parish police jury is a body of godless, hypocritical, parasites;
incredulously, a police jury committee had the unmitigated gall to vote less than forty-eight hours after the polls closed on an "in perpetuity" tax that this same police jury had placed on the ballot -- which of course stupid, pathetic rapides parishians voted on themselves and upon the heads of their posterity.
an "in perpetuity" tax means that people who are not even born yet will be forced, by law -- at the barrel of a gun, to pay (and collect) this tax without ever being given the opportunity to have a say.
the founders of this country called that "taxation without representation; god calls it stealing. so an "in perpetuity" tax is totally opposed to the very principals upon which this country was founded, as well as what it used to mean to be a citizen of this country.
district "c" police juror jamie l. floyd is quoted as stating
"I have about eight months left on this jury, and I want to be able to tell my grandkids I took a stand and got the Ten Commandments on the wall of the courthouse," said District C Juror Jamie Floyd, who sponsored the motion along with District A Juror John "Buck" Lincecum. "If that's all I get done in these four years, that's enough for me and my family."has he thought about how he is going to explain to his, as yet (as far as we know) unborn grandkids, how he supported an "in perpetuity" tax that they will pay while never having the opportunity to vote for or against?
mr. floyd should consider the parable of the two sons.
then ... less than forty-eight hours after the polls even closed on this tax -- brought a motion to display the ten commandments when this very tax besides being anti-american is a violation of, including but not limited to: commandments 8; 9;10 and 4 -- 4 because this ungodly tax will be collected on the sabbath.
obviously, mr. floyd's mission on the police jury has been to make all authentic christians who have actually read the scriptures and can comprehend what they've read, appear to be a bunch of hypocritical idiots. mission accomplished!
be not deceived god is not mockednot only should the display of the ten commandments be banned from all governmental places but an "opening prayer" should be too.
whether its at the city council, school board, police jury, the legislature, etc., because these elected officials turn around and do the exact opposite of what was just prayed about.
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was. ~ 2nd timothy chapter two verses one through nine kjv
