ACLU LOOSES FIGHT FOR TEN COMMANDMENTS TO BE REMOVED!
In 2006, Dixie County, Florida passed an ordinance that allowed citizens to erect a display on the county courthouse’s steps. So, a Christian man paid to have a 12,000-lb stone display of the Ten Commandments set up. Not surprisingly, some atheist or otherwise anti-Christian member of the ACLU who allegedly lived all the way in North Carolina whined and complained about the display and filed a federal lawsuit against the county for breaking that “wall of separation” between Church and State. And of course, the ACLU helped this anonymous person out by representing him (or her).
However, under Article III of the Constitution, in order to file a lawsuit challenging the Constitutionality of a law, the plaintiff has to show that he has standing; that is, he has to show that whatever law he is contesting harms him in some way. So, this North Carolinian concocted a story about how he was planning to buy some property in the Dixie County area, and it pained him to see the Ten Commandments on display when he went to the courthouse.
That was his standing. And thanks to a liberal Supreme Court decision back in 1968, a precedent was established allowing a plaintiff’s standing to be justified by some religious concern. So, in this case, the plaintiff’s standing was on religious grounds. (Get it?)

If more churches would stand up to these city and county governments they would soon back off. Most of them are afraid of law suits but the law is on their side. The other side is just trying to manipulate you into agreeing to soemthing you do not have to.
The same with the IRS - it is all about intim1dtion hoping you will give in, pay fines and they are as happy as a lark. The minute you tell them take me to court we have done nothing wrong, they will then back off and try to get you to just pay a lower fine. NO - Absolutely Not!
