Churches asked to help pay bill for Ten Commandments lawsuit

The U.S. Supreme Court struck down their plans to display the Ten Commandments in courthouses.

So what's the best way for officials in Pulaski and McCreary Counties to pay a $456,000 legal bill they now owe in the case?

Christian radio host David Carr has asked churches in those counties to donate $1,000 each to help pay the bill.

He's also asked pastors to donate $100 each.

Pulaski County officials say they support the effort.

"If that happened, we'd come up with most of the money to pay off the debt probably," Pulaski County Judge-Executive Barty Bullock said.

Pulaski County officials say they've received some donations already.

They'll also consider borrowing money to pay for the legal bill.
