The events unfolding in Alabama have once again brought to the forefront of everyone's mind the issues concerning the First Amendment and the Ten Commandments.
As I am sure your readers know, I was the plaintiff in Mercer County who sued to have the Ten Commandments removed from the courthouse there. This case is on appeal in Cincinnati. Since that case was filed in November 2001, my way of thinking about a lot of things has undergone a drastic change. Almost one year to the date that the lawsuit was filed, I felt an undeniable urge to convert to Christianity.
Many people wondered if this would change my opinion of the Ten Commandments in the county courthouse. I thought long and hard about this and consulted the Bible for guidance. What I found might surprise many Christians.
