In a recent segment on ABC’s “The View,” the liberal panel of co-hosts took aim at Louisiana’s bold move to display the Ten Commandments in public schools. The decision by the Bayou State has sparked controversy, particularly among those who claim it violates the so-called separation of church and state.

Whoopi Goldberg, known for her left-leaning views, kicked off the discussion with her usual skepticism, questioning whether the move is mere political theater or if the state genuinely believes it will stand up in court. “Is this theater? Or does he think this is going to stand up in court?” she asked.

Sunny Hostin, another liberal voice on the panel, confidently declared that Louisiana’s decision is bound to face judicial review, citing precedent from the Supreme Court. “I think he really does think it’s going to stand up in court. Because if you’re going to follow the rule of law, then you really need to follow the US Supreme Court,” Hostin said, referencing a 1980 ruling that deemed similar displays unconstitutional.

Hostin continued her fearmongering, suggesting that Louisiana is banking on a supposedly “reactive, very partisan Supreme Court” to overturn precedent. “We should be very afraid of that, because we’re now an upside-down world,” she proclaimed, painting a dire picture of judicial chaos.

Goldberg, ever ready to challenge conservative values, argued against the idea that America was founded on Christian principles. “If you’re putting the Ten Commandments, does that mean we’re putting the Quran in? Does that mean we’re going to put in the writings of Buddha?” she asked, implying a slippery slope that ignores the historical and cultural significance of the Ten Commandments in America’s heritage.

Sarah Haines chimed in, asserting that posting the Biblical principles in schools would constitute an endorsement of Christianity, which she claimed violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. “The school posting it becomes a stance or an endorsement of sorts. And I think that is inching into a very problematic place,” Haines argued.

However, what the panel conveniently ignored is the historical context and cultural importance of the Ten Commandments in American society. From the founding fathers to the principles enshrined in the Constitution, Christian values have undeniably played a significant role in shaping the nation. The outcry from “The View” reflects a broader trend among liberals to erase these roots and push for a more secular, value-neutral public space.

The Ten Commandments are more than just religious text; they are a cornerstone of moral and legal frameworks that have guided Western civilization for centuries. Displaying them in schools is a reminder of the ethical foundations that underpin our laws and societal norms. It is not an endorsement of a particular religion but a recognition of the values that have historically contributed to the common good.

In an age where moral relativism and secularism dominate public discourse, Louisiana’s decision to display the Ten Commandments is a courageous stand for the enduring values that have shaped America. The outcry from “The View” is predictable but ultimately misguided. Rather than fearing the influence of these timeless principles, we should welcome their reminder of the moral and ethical foundations that have made America great.

As the debate continues, it is essential to remember that the Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. The Ten Commandments in public schools are a testament to the values that have helped forge the nation’s character, and their presence should be celebrated, not condemned.
