Readers Respond: Getting Christian Support for Removing the Ten Commandments from Government

Be the first to respond


Too few Christians in America support removing Ten Commandments signs or displays from government buildings. Almost no evangelicals support this and in no Christian sub-group does the number go over 18%. That's why support among Americans generally for removing the Ten Commandments from government buildings is only 18% — and 60% say they are "strongly opposed" to doing that.

So how can we change that? We won't shift the numbers very far without convincing more Christians to support keeping government secular and neutral in religious matters, but what will it take to achieve this? Is there even anything that can be done at this point?
