Per an AP story, the South Carolina attorney general, in a 10 page
opinion, has ruled that public schools may place the Ten Commandments
on display. He also concluded that school boards may begin meetings
with prayer. He stated the Commandments must be part of an exhibit to
teach about law, history or culture. Students may display the
Commandments as a free-speech right but the state cannot endorse them.
From his report: "A public school is not a place of religion. But
religion has a constitutional place in the public schools."
Sounds a lot like the opinion in Harvey v Cobb County from the 11th Circuit,
or even Judge Price's ruling in James v ACLU of Alabama. Remember, he told
Judge Moore the same thing.
