Cocke County Sheriff Armando Fontes has placed the 10 Commandments on display in the county's courthouse, making him the 25th sheriff in Tennessee to request the framed document from a conservative activist, WBIR.com reports. The religious document is accompanied in the frame by copies of the Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution. Under a new Tennessee law that took effect this spring, cities and counties can display the Ten Commandments as an historical document alongside other historical documents.
