Motivated by what he views as an assault on free speech by the ACLU, a Georgia man has launched a campaign to distribute thousands of Ten Commandments signs across the nation.
Robert Frey, a 33-year-old “average guy who’s fed up and wants to do something,” has set a goal of selling 100,000 signs, suitable for front yards, through a website, TheRevolutionWillBeLive.com.
“By joining together in this spiritual battle we can give the ACLU a nightmare of fits when it realizes that the more it and its ilk try to destroy America, the stronger we will be, the louder we will become,” Frey says on his website.
He says for each 24″ x 24″ sign sold, $1 will be donated to the American Center for Law and Justice, a Virginia-based group defending Ten Commandments displays in many legal cases around the country.
The project is run under Frey’s Enterprise Network Solutions, which he maintains as a for-profit firm to “retain its ability to speak freely on political issues such as the Ten Commandments.”

Robert Anderson got the idea to distribute copies of the Decalogue after attending a rally in St. George to show support for the Ten Commandments and Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore’s fight to keep a display of the laws in the rotunda of the state’s judicial building.
I just thought if it’s not me, then who? If it’s not now, then when?” Anderson told the Salt Lake City Deseret News.

Meanwhile, a Ten Commandments display was removed from a Montana courthouse lawn Wednesday, effectively ending a 4-year-old lawsuit by the ACLU.
As WorldNetDaily reported, in Wisconsin Wednesday, a federal judge set aside an earlier order declaring a Ten Commandments monument in La Crosse to be unconstitutional and has granted a motion clearing the way for the ACLJ to represent the owner of the monument, the Fraternal Order of Eagles.
A new trial has been set for Feb. 17, 2004.
Last month, Alabama’s Chief Justice Moore was suspended for violating a federal judge’s order by refusing to remove his Ten Commandments monument. The 5,300-pound display was moved to a storage room. Moore faces a misconduct charge and could be removed from office.
Frey said, “Now, instead of worrying about a single granite display of the Ten Commandments in the rotunda of an Alabama courthouse, we can watch as the ACLU and its deceived followers go absolutely crazy over the thousands, if not millions, of Ten Commandments displays cropping up all over the American landscape.”
