    Supreme Court takes Utah case involving religious monument

    I don't see how this religion can be denied the right to display their 7 beliefs, if the 10 commandments are already displayed in the state park.
    Freedom of speech?
    Seperation of church and state?

    I agree. I don't see how they can possibly deny this one if they're alreayd displaying the 10 commandments.
