Courthouse Confusion

Would someone please explain to me how this can be displayed in a court house…

Sacramento, CA A painting of the United States sinking into a toilet now on display in the cafeteria of the state Department of Justice has raised the ire of the state Republican Party, which is demanding that Attorney General Bill Lockyer remove the image.

…but not these?

Veterans and supporters watch as Paul Worthington, commander of the local American Legion post, hangs a copy of the Ten Commandments in the McCreary County Courthouse on Oct. 10, 2000.

Not only that,… but on June 27, 2005 The Supreme Court Justices forbid copies of the 10 Commandments on walls of courthouses but allowed 10 Commanment Monuments on the lawn of courthouses.
