My Atheist Response to Giles County Schools' 10 Commandments Brouhaha

Over the last couple of months, the public school system of Giles County, which neighbors mine, has been in the news for it's defiant, unconstitutional posting of the Christian "10 Commandments" on the walls inside all of it's school buildings. The latest development is that they've voted to remove them again at a meeting yesterday morning, a month after they voted to hang them back up during an evening meeting on January 20th that was mobbed by pissed off parents, preachers, and the rest of their "Christian community." That spectacle followed the decision in December to remove the 10 Commandments (which had been up for 10 years), following a parent complaint and the advice of the school district's attorney.
