Thou shalt not kill

FBI statistics tell us more than 900 people have been shot and killed in the United States since the Dec. 14 school shooting in Connecticut. Yet there are people who take offense to the presence of a historical monument — the Ten Commandments pillar outside Valley High School — that proclaims killing is wrong.

The Ten Commandments are not just a lot of irrelevant restrictions that interfere with the freedoms upon which this country was founded. On the contrary, we continue to look to God — the Founding Fathers' source of inspiration and ours as well.

Perhaps people who object to our godly heritage should consider moving elsewhere.
