NASH COUNTY, N.C. — Inside the Nash County Courthouse, the Ten Commandments have been on display for about 100 years. Now, the future of this display is uncertain after Monday's U.S. Supreme Court ruling.
The first ruling says displays, such as the one outside the Texas state capitol, are allowed on government land as long as they are for a historical purpose. The second ruling, however says, some courthouse displays, such as two in Kentucky, violate separation of church and state.
