Ten Commandments Amendment Cruises to Victory in Alabama

The constitutional amendment, allowing religious monuments in government buildings, will almost surely wind up in court.

Alabama voters overwhelmingly approved a ballot measure to allow the Ten Commandments to be displayed in schools and government buildings in the state.

By greater than a three-to-one margin, voters in the state supported the controversial ballot initiative that almost certainly will invite court battles over the First Amendment.

The amendment effort was led by by Dean Young, a Christian activist who once served as an aide to Roy Moore, the former chief justice who made national headlines in 2001 when he had a 5,200-pound granite monument of the Ten Commandments installed in the rotunda of the state courthouse.

Can someone explain how this is even a thing? Plus, how is this NOT a tyrannical majority forcing its will on the public, one of the very reasons there are protections afforded by the bill of rights?
