Two Giles County families have come forward to pursue legal action against the Giles County School system for the posting of the Ten Commandments in its schools.
Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-president of the Freedom from Religion Foundation, confirmed the Wisconsin-based group is planning to go forward with legal action.
She said the lawsuit would likely be filed through the American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia and the Freedom from Religion Foundation’s attorney would act as co-counsel.
However, Gaylor said nothing has been filed yet and the language is being perfected.
The group and the ACLU plan to seek a protective order to keep the families’ names confidential.
Gaylor said the families have students in Giles County Schools and came forward in the last few weeks.
It is really hard to state how much damage the culture wars have inflicted on this country. Rather than issues that matter, so much energy is pumped into crap like this rather than things that really matter. ED Kain just had a long post up on the problems with current education reform, and the issue will get little to no media attention. This story, however, will be all over the news.
The really appalling issue is not whether or not the Ten Commandments are present in schools. The problem is that if they are, most of the damned kids can’t read them.
