10 Commandments...HOW DARE YOU! Koran....It's all good....its about DIVERSITY!

[Q]A Koran installed in the lobby of police headquarters has raised concerns about a breach in the constitutional wall separating church and state, and underscores the influential role religion plays in the culture of the department[/Q]

[Q]The Koran is displayed atop a brass pedestal and ensconced in a glass cube in front of the official police seal near the Hall of Heroes. Its installation coincides with the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.[/Q]

[Q]Donna Lieberman, the New York Civil Liberties Union executive director, said no matter what its intentions are, the city can not violate the separation of church and state.

"I think that the government, including the Police Department, cannot engage in religious promotion," she said. "There's a vast difference between promoting religion and in educating police officers about religions so that they understand and are sensitive to various values and beliefs."[/Q]

I will now return to my self imposed exile......

I'm for removal too. Either it's complete separation of church and state or not.

The debate over where the line is drawn continues to play out from the controversy over saying the Pledge of the Allegiance in schools to President George Bush's faith-based initiatives.
Remove him.
