When the courts of this country banned the posting of the Ten Commandments in classrooms and public buildings, Fr. Shamon wrote The Ten Commandments of God. He looked at each of them and asked the question, Why? Why must I pray? Why must I honor my father and mother? Why can't I steal, and so on? Fr. Shamon shows that the Ten Commandments are rooted in common sense and good judgment, basically justice and rights, and defend the dignity of man and woman and are geared to protecting parents, life, spouse, property and reputation. A nation committed to law and order is committing civil euthanasia by outlawing the Ten Commandments from the public forum. This book gives a powerful argument for the return of the Ten Commandments to our nation.
