COURT SAYS OK TO BAN TEN COMMANDMENTS FROM BALLFIELD

        SAN FRANCISCO (CWNews.com) - A federal appeals court ruled on Monday that a California school district could refuse an advertisement at a baseball field from a businessman who wanted to post the Ten Commandments.

        A panel of the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously agreed that the First Amendment does not protect advertisers who want to post religious messages. The court said the baseball field was open only for a limited public purpose: education, and held that the Ten Commandments would not advance that educational purpose. It also held that the school district's policy was to avoid all controversial topics and thus could not be sued for singling out Christians.
