STATE NEWS — Governor clarifies Ten Commandments opinion

“American Family Association of Michigan President Gary Glenn said the organization was enthused by (Gov. Jennifer) Granholm’s initial remarks and sent out an initial statement saying they would work to bring a traveling exhibit of (the Ten Commandments) to the Capitol. Association members also said they would work to raise funds to build a permanent (display) in the rotunda. ‘We were disappointed to see how quickly she capitulated to pressure from anti-religious organizations and the (American Civil Liberties Union), who have been her political support,’ Glenn said. Wendy Wagenheim, spokeswoman for the Michigan Chapter of the ACLU, said the organization was happy to hear that Granholm does not believe the commandments should be displayed in the rotunda.”
