Re: The Tens of Commandments

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof

The opening phrase of the first ammendment clearly limits the ammendment's scope to Congress and the making of laws. How does this ammendment have any bearing on whether a court or any other public building can display the ten commandments? It's not as if Congress has passed a law that requires all courts in the republic to display the ten commandments--that would clearly be unconstitutional.
