There has been a lot of controversy over the Ten Commandments the last few years. In Alabama, Chief Justice Roy Moore has been removed from office for displaying the Ten Commandments in the court building.

I display the Ten Commandments in my office and I have been searching for a Ten Commandments tie to wear but as yet have not found one. I have located a copy of the Ten Commandments etched in Jerusalem stone however. Jerusalem stone comes only from the Holy Land. Because the plaque is real stone it is not cheap to etch and not cheap to ship. The Ten Commandments plaque is  9" by 4.75" and weighs almost two pounds. It is framed in antique gold and has a hook on the back for hanging.

We are not merely selling these, we are helping Christians who live and work in the Holy Land as well. The funds from the sale of these Ten Commandments Plaques are used to fund Religious Freedom Coalition activities in the West Bank including financial aid to Christian schools.

The plaque comes with a certificate of authenticity that it is indeed genuine Jerusalem stone. This Ten Commandments plaque is well worth $40.00 and there is no tax and no shipping fee! A wonderful Christ mas gift. Click here to order yours today !


Although the House adjourned at the end of last week Majority Leader Bill Frist kept the Senate in session over the weekend in an attempt to pass the President's Energy and Medicare Reform bills. Frist scored 50% by passing the Medicare Reform package which includes some prescription benefits for seniors and competition within the system beginning in 2008. He was unable to bust the Democrat filibuster on the Energy bill which failed to pass.

Senator Wayne Allard (R-CO) introduced the Senate version of the Federal Marriage Amendment (S-26) before leaving town for the Thanksgiving holiday. The Senate Federal Marriage Amendment (FMA) he offered is identical to the House version offered by Congresswoman Musgrave (R-CO). Many conservative groups are unhappy with that current language which they believe actually may promote "civil unions." On the other hand the Massachusetts Supreme Court has forced the issue and there is little time for debate. The Weekly Standard, which is very influential in the White House, has taken the position that passing a Federal Marriage Amendment is virtually impossible. ( See story ). Have you signed the marriage petition to Congress at
