This is ridiculous. The fact is, the commandments shouldn't be displayed in the courthouse on the merit of whether a majority of people agree it should or shouldn't, they shouldn't be displayed because it's illogical and, in this society, illegal. There's no need for this informal vote.
The biblical 10 commandments are discriminatory and if taken literally, go against religious liberty. It's not American to "prohibit worship of other gods or to have a certain one." Same for "prohibiting graven images" or "making a specific day a holy day". Those rules are the opposite of religious liberty. Not allowing people to take a certain gods name in vain is the opposite of freedom of speech, and thus its not what America is all about.
Nope, the 10 commandments can be on your body, your clothes, your house, heck, carve them into your yard and wallpaper them on your business. But the government-run entities should be neutral when it comes to religion. The government should either post all the religion's sets of rules or none. "No religious tests" is part of our constitution and the spirit of that rule goes beyond how we elect people. Same for the first amendment.
