Perspective on displaying the 10 Commandments

A great letter to the NY Times said:
I'm less bothered by government endorsement of religion than by the hypocrisy of having our government buildings shout "do not kill" and "do not bear false witness" while we start needless wars based on trumped-up evidence.
If government displays of religion had been pushed by Mother Teresa, I might accept them, but they're pushed by people who often contradict the very messages they want prominently displayed.
Such religious displays would actually serve a useful purpose if seen for what they are: not affirmations of righteousness but testaments to hypocrisy.
