Freethinkers try to force their viewsThe Freethinkers sure are close-minded and really against allowing people to think freely. The Ten Commandments monument doesn’t force you to be a Christian and nobody is forced to even look at it. The monument being on city property doesn’t injure anyone in any way and certainly doesn’t indicate an endorsement of religion.
Just about every one of our laws is based on the Ten Commandments, so it’s fitting to have this monument where it is. I say to the so-called “Freethinkers”: stop trying to remove our historical monuments and forcing your beliefs and thinking on others. The “freethinking” that you supposedly support is what you are trying to deprive others of. There are better things to worry about in this country than a monument that’s been there for 50 years.
