Court Considers Religious Displays

3-2-05 - SUPREME COURT (AP) The question of whether a Ten Commandments display on the Texas Capitol grounds goes before the US Supreme Court today.

Opponents say the monument's an unconstitutional official endorsement of religion. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott contends it merely acknowledges the nation's legal heritage.

The US Supreme Court also hears arguments today on whether Ten Commandments displays should be allowed on in Kentucky courthouses.

The justices' ruling, expected by late June, could affect thousands of Ten Commandments monuments and displays nationwide.
