-- A recent Supreme Court ruling in the U.S. declared that public displays of the Ten Commandments in a Kentucky courthouse were unconstitutional. What may appear as a major setback to the Ten Commandments has, in fact, resulted in a massive coordinated response from some of America's top religious leaders.
The Ten Commandments represent the moral foundation of this great and blessed nation," states Ron Wexler, President/CEO of the newly formed Ten Commandments Commission (TCC). "Sacred laws that this nation was founded on are being assaulted and denigrated daily by an army of secular champions determined to destroy every vestige of America's rich spiritual heritage."
Over the past several months lawsuits and Supreme Court rulings have forced the removal of Ten Commandments displays from schools, city halls, and other public buildings across America.
"We've seen destructive lifestyles applauded and promoted in schools and public venues even as prayer, Scripture, and expressions of faith are ridiculed and banned," explains Wexler.
To combat the erosion of the Ten Commandments in society, Wexler is meeting with Jewish and Christian leaders in Canada to formulate a coordinated response. The September 9-19 strategy sessions will discuss how churches, synagogues and various religious ministries can affirm and maintain the Judeo-Christian moral tradition in society.
Also at the forefront of the movement to restore the Ten Commandments to society is Pastor Myles Munroe, Chairman of the TCC.
"We are very disappointed in the Supreme Court's ruling against the Ten Commandments," says Munroe. "Recent court rulings represent a divergence from the founding Judeo-Christian principle of the sovereign divine supremacy, and they threaten the very fabric and foundation of the pillars of our society."
