Developing: Giles County Removes Ten Commandments from School Displays UPDATE: The Parties Respond

A source has confirmed to Bearing Drift that the Giles County School Board, in consultation with the Liberty Counsel, has decided to remove the controversial display of the Ten Commandments from the county’s public schools. The decision was based upon an estimation of the county’s chances of success in the courts and the prohibitive cost of defending the county school system from the lawsuits being filed by the Freedom from Religion Foundation and the American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia.

This story is developing and more information will be provided as it becomes available.

Update: The Freedom from Religion Foundation and ACLUVA respond [1]to today’s action, while the Liberty Counsel is refusing [2]to comment at this time.
