Keep the Ten Commandments Monument at Valley High School!

 

This historic monument of the Ten Commandments, donated in 1957 by the Fraternal Order of Eagles, should remain in its current location at Valley High School. The monument has stood in its current location for the past 55 years and is a piece of history in the community. The monument was not paid for with tax dollars, rather was donated by the New Kensington Aerie Fraternal Order of Eagles with the support of Cecil B. DeMille, who had directed the film The Ten Commandments the prior year. We feel that this monument is constitutional, as it represents historical value and not purely religious value.

 

It would be a great injustice to the city of New Kensington and the New Kensington-Arnold School District, it’s citizens and students, past and present, and its surrounding neighbors and communities to remove a piece of history from its intended location.

      Wisconsin groups don't have the right to make Pennsylvania policy even using Hatred of Freedom of Religion as a reason to remove a historical document.

      I am signing this as I feel it has a right to be there. I am not a religious person, but believe it has a right to be there. If you don't like it, look the other way. .
