At the Atlanta, Georgia, Christian Coalition gathering in support of displaying the Ten Commandments in public places.

For those of you unfamiliar with the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, it reads as follows:

Sooooo, where is the irony here? I do see the people excercising their first amendment rights, but I don't see any irony...

I guess they got confused.

The judge and the 10 commandments? Hmm. Could be ironic, but the rally itself suggests that there is still freedom to speak.

I have no idea what is going on in this photo. Do you need to be American to get this? 1

So the 1st ammendment prohibits state sponsored religion. Why is that ironic?

Sorry - don't get it

I don't really know what the title means and how it fits to the photo. An amendment is a change to something right? If there is irony here I am too silly to get it :-) So I'll take your word for it.

I live in Montgomery, Al. so this photo for me really hits home. I find irony in a nation that takes God our of it then wonders where things went wrong. Nice idea and well done for the topic !
