Of laws & lawgivers

The Fayette County commissioners' proclamation on the Ten Commandments, as reported on Dec. 14, 2012, ignores the fact that Muhammed and the Quran, as well as pagan lawmakers, also adorn the Supreme Court.

We are a nation of laws and lawgivers, Judeo-Christian and otherwise. James Madison and others researched all ancient laws to come up with our Constitution. That is part of our history.

It seems that lawgivers prior to Moses realized that stealing, bearing false witness, killing, dishonoring parents, etc., were not good for society. It is time that Americans stop bearing false witness to our past and the good laws and lawgivers that came before us. In a sense in doing so, we take God's name and the names of our forefathers in vain, dishonoring them and stealing from those lawgivers before and after Moses, who deserve our respect and gratitude.
