The biblical 10 commandments are discriminatory and if taken literally, go against religious liberty. It's not American to "prohibit worship of other gods or to have a certain one." Same for "prohibiting graven images" or "making a specific day a holy day". Those rules are the opposite of religious liberty. Not allowing people to take a certain gods name in vain is the opposite of freedom of speech, and thus its not what America is all about.

Nope, the 10 commandments can be on your body, your clothes, your house, heck, carve them into your yard and wallpaper them on your business. But the government-run entities should be neutral when it comes to religion. The government should either post all the religion's sets of rules or none. "No religious tests" is part of our constitution and the spirit of that rule goes beyond how we elect people. Same for the first amendment.

Chris Carroll listed Autism Society of MIDDLE Tennessee (ASMT) as a local resource for people in the greater Chattanooga area. As all the readers surely recognized, ASMT is a Nashville-based chapter serving middle TN and is also not in the business of providing diagnostic, evaluation, or therapy services for people. While ASMT is a fantastic organization, it's not a relevant, nor a local resource in this case.

I'm unsure why Autism Society of America -East Tennessee Chapter (ASA-ETC) or the Chattanooga Autism Center (CAC) were not listed instead? These are similar organizations to ASMT, but are local. Both are great organizations/programs and work together, and the CAC is a program of the TEAM Centers. To clarify, neither provide evaluation or therapy as the Outpatient Clinic does. They provide education and support to parents looking to create programs beyond what is provided clinically.

A quick web search found several children's hospitals who benefit from Lawn Mower Racing fundraisers. Here's one of many:


"**Benefit [lawn mower] Race for Shriners Childrens Hospital (All proceeds go to The Shriners Childrens Hospital.) "
