Ten Commandments Display

     RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The American Civil Liberties Union is suing
a Virginia school board for posting the Ten Commandments,
contending that the display violates separation of church and
state.
     The ACLU of Virginia filed a federal lawsuit against the Giles
County School Board on behalf of an unidentified Narrows High
School student and the student's parent. The lawsuit says the
display unconstitutionally promotes a specific religious faith and
serves no secular purpose.
     It seeks removal of the Ten Commandments from school walls and a
ban on their further display.
     After removing the Ten Commandments during the last school year,
school board members voted in June to display them again alongside
other historical documents.
