Oklahoma Supreme Court Rejects State's Attempt to Keep Ten Commandments Monument

Tuesday, July 28, 2015 | Tag Cloud Tags: ,

(Worthy News) - The Oklahoma Supreme Court has rejected a last ditch attempt by the state to keep a Ten Commandments monument next to the Oklahoma Capitol.

Monday, the court turned down a request from the state to reconsider its June 30 ruling calling for removal of the 6-foot granite statue.

The monument violates a section of the Oklahoma Constitution prohibiting state property from being used to further religions, the court said. The original ruling and the denial of a rehearing came on 7-2 votes.

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has argued there are historical and secular aspects to the Ten Commandments that should allow the monument to stay. [ Source ]

  1. Actually, this turned out to be a blessing for the Lord and for Oklahoma. That decision caused the unveiling of an 8 foot tall, bronze, statue to Satan (I kid you not) to be moved from Oklahoma to Detroit. "The statue had been planned for the state Capitol in Oklahoma City until Oklahoma’s Supreme Court banned a monument of the Ten Commandments on Capitol grounds." DETROIT (WWJ/AP)

  2. I remember in the early 90's when they were doing this down South and the alarms began to sound then but everybody who was saying anything then was discounted. In fact, they were calling the people pointing it out alarmist's.

  3. Last week I asked our senator to simply deed the little plot it's on to me and let me put what I want on it....... of course it would be the commandments....
