Abstract:     
The U.S. Supreme Court recently heard two Ten Commandments cases, one from Kentucky and one from Texas. Shortly before agreeing to hear these cases the Court refused to grant certiorari in Glassroth v. Moore, the controversial case involving a Ten Commandments monument weighing more than 5000 pounds that the former chief justice of Alabama, Roy Moore, placed in the rotunda of the Alabama Supreme Court building. At the heart of all three cases is a conflict over the meaning of the First Amendment.
