Circuit Upholds Constitutionality of Ten Commandments Monument

Attorney Steve Fitschen is applauding a federal appeals court that has upheld the constitutionality of a Ten Commandments display in a northwest Washington city.

The case involves a six-foot granite monument inscribed with the Ten Commandments that sits near the Old City Hall in Everett, Washington. The local chapter of the Fraternal Order of Eagles donated the monument to the city in 1959 — and no one complained about it for more than 30 years. In its ruling in Card v. City of Everett, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found the display does not have a solely religious purpose.

Steven W. Fitschen, president of the National Legal Foundation, says the case shows the true agenda of liberal groups. Americans, he argues, should not have to abandon their religious heritage in order to appease someone’s political agenda — an agenda he says is not even hidden.
