Ten Commandments Ruling

Residents in Pulaski and McCreary counties will no longer see framed copies of the 10 Commandments in their courthouses, after the Supreme Court's ruling in the case.

In two sharply divided decisions, Justices ruled against displays of the 10 Commandments in Kentucky courthouses, saying they violated the doctrine of separation of Church and State.

But the Court ruled in favor of a 10 Commandments monument at the Texas state capitol because it was set in historical context with other monuments.

The debate started six years ago in Kentucky in Pulaski and McCreary counties, when a framed copy was put up in both courthouses.

After the High Court's decision, the copies will not be put back up on the walls.

People in both Pulaski and McCreary counties were thinking about having a celebration on July 4th if the Court had ruled in favor of the 10 Commandments.
