These 10 beneficial laws were given by the Creator God to show us how to live a better life now and please God forever.God gave the 10 Commandments from Mount Sinai, accompanied by smoke, earthquakes and the blast of a trumpet to emphasize the importance of these laws.Introduced by Republican Representative John Bennett, HB 2177 allows for public buildings to display the Decalogue alongside other historical documents including the Magna Carta, the Mayflower Compact and the Declaration of Independence."Every county, municipality, city, town, school or any other political subdivision is authorized to display, in its public buildings and on its grounds, replicas of historical documents including, but not limited to, the Ten Commandments, Magna Carta, Mayflower Compact, Declaration of Independence, United States Constitution, Bill of Rights, Oklahoma Constitution and other historically significant documents in the form of statues, monuments, memorials, tablets or any other display that respects the dignity and solemnity of such documents," reads the bill."The Ten Commandments, Magna Carta, Mayflower Compact, Declaration of Independence, United States Constitution, Bill of Rights, Constitution of the Great State of Oklahoma, and other such historically significant documents are treasures that should be displayed proudly and resolutely in public buildings and on public grounds."HB 2177 also states that if any such display is the subject of a lawsuit, "the Oklahoma Attorney General is authorized to prepare and present a legal defense of the display."Republican Representative Rick West, a cosponsor of the bill, said in a statement published by local media on Wednesday that including the Decalogue in the group of displayed documents was consistent with American history."Our founding fathers were religious men who took into account Judeo-Christian beliefs when they formed this great nation, and many of the Ten Commandments are already contained in our country's system of laws," stated Rep.West."It only makes sense that we would include such an important piece of our past as part of the historically significant documents."HB 2177 comes months after Oklahoma voters rejected a referendum proposal that if passed would have amended the state constitution to allow for Ten Commandments displays on public property.Have to wonder about them using your own knowledge.Violent firing of the ball into the sea of singles, you need to advertise yourself the same question.
