No, people that don't believe in God would more than likely have a HUGE uproar about it

I don't think it really matters. If it wasn't for all the people making a big uproar about it (both for and against) the students that actually go to that school probably wouldn't even notice them. I know when I was in school, I don't think I payed much attention to what was hanging in the hallways.

Most of them have sense in them, I'm an atheist and I'll admit that, no matter what your religion you can't go wrong with "thou shalt not kill"

According to Galations 3, it would not do any good.

they will never be posted in public schools because too many people will have a problem with it

It's called the constitution, hammertime. No government institution is allowed to promote or espouse *any* religion over any other religion. If the commandments from Christianity can be posted, the main tenets of *all* religions should be able to be posted just as freely--and that includes the Wiccan Rede: "An it harm none, do what ye will," as well as the primary law of Satanism: "Do what ye will--that is the whole of the law." A government institution *cannot* promote any one religion over any other by order of the constitution, so in order to not be in breach of the constitution, either *all* religions' tenets are posted for display in courtrooms and schools, or *none* are.

Actually, if you leave out the god part and put in your teacher/parent/athoritiy etc... they seem like a justified set of rules. Ya know... dont steal, dont lie, respect thy parents, and so on. Dont f*ck your buddy's wife, it works out in the long run. Just take out the "i wont have any other god but the almight jesus" thats what they should do.

They're good commandments to live by, who cares where they come from?

I don't see why it is such an uproar except that there are people who can make money off of being offended.

Very true, nicky. That's what it's all about these days

they are indeed rules to live by. I agree, take out the part about having false gods and you're headed in the right direction. What's wrong with teaching kids rules?

For what purpose?

with good reason, there is no way that it's logical for PUBLIC schools to promote one religion that way.

By posting them up on the walls is not anything like sending you child to an entire class about religion. If you don't want to beleive in the stuff then don't. Big deal. Quit making a big deal about it.
