Are the 10 Commandments Universal?

Rev. Barry Lynn says in a PBS Newshour debate about the Alabama judge who installed the granite statue of the 10 Commandments:

the Constitution of the United States is not based on the Ten Commandments. At least four — in many versions five of the Ten Commandments are explicitly religious. They have got nothing to do with the secular law. They have issues to do with how many Gods there are, should we make graven images, what day should be the Sabbath. These are very contentious religious issues but they are not the foundation stones of the American legal system.
