Sense & separation

Although I agree with Kenneth Firestone regarding the necessity of morality (“Restore U.S. values I,” Jan. 26), government schools displaying the 10 Commandments have nothing to do with that fact. On the contrary, such an action defies the moral principle of separation of church and state.

Contrary to Mr. Firestone's statement that a court ruling against the theocratic monument would be “criminal,” it is the school district that is acting unlawfully and squandering taxpayer money in this situation.

Selling the property that the monument is located upon, as suggested by Thomas Methven (Restore U.S. values II), is a sensible solution that will cease diverting money from the fundamental purpose of a school district: education.
