The Ten Commandments Posted Proudly in the US!

Cherokees vote to display Ten Commandments
'We are sovereign nation and can pretty much post anything we want'


"We aren't saying you have to abide by the Ten Commandments," Kephart said, according to the Smoky Mountain News. "We are simply displaying God's Ten Commandments. That's what He expects from each and every individual. If you break that, it is between you and God. It is not between you and the tribal council; it is between you and God."

There is no First Amendment issue involved, and even if the American Civil Liberties Union wanted to make one, it can't. The U.S. Constitution does not apply to Cherokee, nor to any other Native American tribe for that matter, according to Cherokee's Attorney General David Nash.

"We are a sovereign nation and we can pretty much post anything we want in our council chambers," said Kephart. "For once the federal government is not going to tell us what to do. We can feel good about it because we are standing up for God. The more it becomes controversial, the more we need to stand firm."


Read the whole thing.

YAY! Cherokee! They have managed to embarrass our ENTIRE judicial system with ONE BOLD MOVE!

The motion passed unanimously.


Anyone interested in faking their "Native American" identity? Oh- that's already been done..........
