They're ba-ack

Apparently, the 10 Commandments have reappeared in the rotunda of the Alabama Judiciary Building. This time, however, the Commandments are just one part of a larger display that honors the origins of the Western legal tradition.

Richard Cohen, president of one of the three organizations that sued over Judge Moore's original monument seems to think this new monument comports with the Constitution. Cohen had this to say, "Unlike Moore's monument, it does not appear to have the purpose or effect of promoting religion."

No word yet on possible suits by other organizations.
