Thy government shalt not show preference to any religion or faith.
That's how the ACLU feels about a downstate Illinois town's proposed monument to the Ten Commandments.
"I'm not a crusader; I'm just somebody trying to do something for our community. If we aren't reminded of these things that we have, we will see them gradually slipping away," Kessler said, according to the Associated Press.
The idea was not approved officially, but Marion Mayor Bob Butler gave it his full support and is determined to put the plan into action.
The American Civil Liberties Union has threatened to sue the city should the project continue.
Butler is unfazed, calling the ACLU "crazy" for thinking a lawsuit will make him "back off."
After all, thou shalt not let a little thing like Separation of Church and State get in the way.
