Given that the building in which the Supreme Court is housed wasn't built until the 1930s, I am not sure of the relevance of your comment is to the question of whether or not the United States was founded on Christian principles. Moreover, you have asserted that the Ten Commandments are above the front doors of the Supreme Court, but the photograph that you have included does not back up that assertion (in fact, the text under the frieze that you have shown is "Equal Justice Under Law," which has nothing to do with the Ten Commandments). In fact, a quick Google seems to indicate that the only reference to the Ten Commandments in any of the art or architecture in the Supreme Court is a depiction of Moses in a courtroom frieze that also includes many other ancient lawgivers, such as Hammurabi (who significantly predates most of Jewish history), Confucius (who has nothing to do with any of the Abrahamic religions), and Menes (whose dynasty in Egypt began more than 5000 years ago, again significantly predating most of the Judeo-Christian tradition). I should also note that none of this information is hard to find, and you don't have be an expert to access it---a very cursory internet search got me a Wikipedia article that is pretty well cited, and this delightful virtual tour of the courthouse, both of which are sufficient to counter your claim. Honestly, you should be ashamed to spread such misinformation. We live in a time when it is quite easy to check your assumptions against reliable sources. There is no excuse for such a willful display of ignorance.
Finally, you completely failed to address any of the points made by either myself or kudayta. You claimed that the US was founded on Judeo-Christian principles. We countered that (1) the constitution specifically denies this and (2) the founding fathers explicitly founded the nation on other principles. You addressed neither of these statements.
- You are incorrect in your assertion that the Supreme Court building references the Ten Commandments over the entrance.
- Even if it did, the recent vintage of the building does nothing to support your assertion that the country was founded on Christian beliefs.
- You have done nothing to counter the actual objections made to your original statement.
- You should be ashamed of yourself for maintaining such willful ignorance.
