The Countdown Is On: Only 23 Days Until Oral Arguments In The Ten Commandments Case

Feb 7, 2005

We are currently in the process of preparing the Reply Brief for the Supreme Court Ten Commandments case of McCreary County v. ACLU of Kentucky. The brief directly counters the arguments put forth by the ACLU in their response to our initial brief. This writing period is critical for the success of the case, since the Reply Brief is the last document the Supreme Court will receive before oral arguments on March 2.

On our web site, we have posted the other briefs that have been filed in this case. Amicus briefs have been filed by the U.S. Attorney General's office and twenty-six states in support of our position. You can also read briefs that were filed supporting the extreme position of the ACLU and its allies.

With only 23 short days left before oral arguments, now, more than ever, we need you to get involved in this historic case and become a "Defend The Ten" prayer partner. Please click on, click on "BECOME A 'DEFEND THE TEN' PRAYER PARTNER" and make a commitment to lift this case up in daily prayer.

Today, we have some specific prayers requests:

(1) Please pray for clarity and direction in crafting every argument in the Reply Brief;
(2) Please pray for Chief Justice William Rehnquist. He is undergoing treatment for thyroid cancer.

You can count on us to keep you informed of specific prayer items during this countdown to March 2. We are grateful to those who have already responded to our call for prayer. May the Lord be glorified in all that we do.
