At the last meeting, the RCC – Legislative Committee took up the following resolution:
We, the below-signed sitting Commission of Robertson County, in consideration of our great Biblical history of Tennessee, both in our Tennessee Constitution and devotional activities in ourheritage, hereby acknowledge the importance of the Ten Commandments of Almighty God and wish to go on record in support of this Magnificent Document and state that we will defend our right to its display to the limit of our ability, against all enemies, domestic and foreign, public and private.
In the enacting of this Resolution, we hereby petition the God of Heaven to preserve the peace which He has so graciously extended to us by our ancient acknowledgement of the Ten Commandments and beg His continued protection and alleviation of ills which come to those who forget Him and His Law.
It passed the RCCLC with “no recommendation” so that the entire commission can consider the adoption of this resolution. This resolution will be considered at the April Regular County Commission meeting.
Now, as a citizen, you should consider this resolution in two parts, because that is the way in which this is being advocated.
What I mean by this: there are two proponents with two very different objectives.
One proponent merely wants merely for us to adopt this resolution.
The second proponent desires to have the 10 Commandments placed in our Robertson County Courthouse, or other public venue.
