The purpose of Our Conscience weblog is to facilitate a greater discussion and understanding of church and state separation in our community and in others. Underlying this is the value that each individual should be allowed to follow the dictates of his or her own conscience without influence, coercion, or direction from the State when it comes to matters of religion.

U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit: La Crosse, Wisconsin Ten Commandment Land Sale Upheld

Our Conscience

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit issued an opinion today that upholds La Crosse, Wisconsin's decision to sell a portion of its public park (and the Ten Commandments it sat on) to the Order of Eagles, which had originally donated the monument to the City.

Of course, this is just a nice way to circumvent the law. You can't have the display in a public park so simply sell the land it sits on to a private entity that wants the monument displayed.
