The poll is in the left hand upper corner. The main story is unrelated.

So far the no's are winning - keep up the good work.

I was going to post that I voted no on the poll, but felt that it should have stated more clearly that it referred to the 10Cs being displayed alone, and not some display alongside various other ancient historical law documents.

But then I thought on some posts I've seen here before, specifically those arguing against the statements that our laws are based on christianity, and breakdowns of the various commandments and how they relate to today's secular laws.

And I think it doesn't matter how the poll is phrased...even in a historical collection display, I don't think now that the 10Cs should be included at all, because so few of them are not religious oriented...only if you just displayed the obvious few, like "Thou shalt not kill", would it belong in a group celebrating the history of law.

as a personal religious display in your yard, its fine. in government property, it shouldnt exist. the 10 commandments have no relation to the bill of rights.

I agree with that statement.

Also, since that poll is a "Question of the day," I apparently missed it, since the question that's up now is about recall elections.
