Court rules that Ten Commandments Monument must go

The supreme court in the State of Oklahoma has ruled that the Ten Commandments Monument at the State Capitol must be removed.  The Ten Commandments Monument has been subject to campaign of opposition by Satanists in the Satanic Temple and other opponents on the grounds of infringement of the separation of religion from state in the USA, which resulted in the building of a statue to Satan, proposed to be built at the same location.

The court ruled that the Ten Commandments Monument violated the State provision of separation of religion from the state.  The supporters of the Ten Commandments Monument are considering their legal options to overturn the court ruling.

  1. This will make the “leaders” go even crazier. Not sure about the rank-and-file christians. The religious leaders and political candidates are trying to whip them into a frenzy but I don’t know if that’s working.

    • The state supreme court ruling was enthusiastic in support of the ban, so I think it does not matter what the religious leaders think, unless the ruling is overturned, the Ten Commandments Monument will go.
