NASHVILLE The Ten Commandments are being stripped from public buildings
across our country. So why are they still posted over the heads of our
Supreme Court Justices every time they hold court? They are posted there,
insists New York Times best-selling author Pat Robertson, because it's
where they belong. His new book, The Ten Offenses: Reclaim the Blessings
of the Ten Commandments,
asserts that America was founded as a Christian
nation and that recent efforts to deny or revise that fact are dangerous
to our society.

Pat Robertson believes there is a battle raging for the soul of America.
He writes that courts run amok, fueled by secular allies, are eroding
America's spiritual foundations. As a consequence, the historic blessings
and benefits of the Ten Commandments are being spun as a great offense
to our religiously diverse culture. Nothing, insists the author and
broadcaster, could be further from the truth.
"Religious pluralism thrives in America as a result of our Christian
heritage, not in spite of it," says Pat Robertson, veteran broadcaster
and best-selling author. In The Ten Offenses, Robertson calls
Americans to reclaim their spiritual roots to reaffirm the central
role of God's fundamental laws before it is too late.
Some of the controversial questions Robertson tackles in his new book
- Was America really founded on Christian principles including The
- Does being a "Christian nation" result in oppression or
freedom for people of other faiths?
- Why are some people so offended by The Ten Commandments now
since they have been posted in public places for more than two centuries?
- Do the Ten Commandments have relevancy to current culture?
- Why have Supreme Court judges ordered the removal of The Ten Commandments
from public areas while they still have them posted in their own court?
- If Supreme Court justices do not have the constitutional authority
to remove Bible reading, prayer and the Ten Commandments from public
life, why are Americans letting them do it?
- What blessings will America forfeit by removing the Ten Commandments
from our personal and public lives?
Byron Williamson, President and CEO of Integrity Publishers, believes
Robertson's new book is both timely and needed. "Pat Robertson
is offering a wake up call, supported by historical data and current
headlines, which Americans need to hear. His sound research and reasoned
call for action are vital reading for people everywhere."
