Atheist Groups Sue to Remove Ten Commandments Monument from Arkansas State Capitol


(Worthy News) - Two atheist groups have filed a lawsuit against the state of Arkansas for a Ten Commandments monument erected in April after a man destroyed the first one by ramming it with his car last summer.

Three years ago, Arkansas passed a law allowing the monument to be built. The Ten Commandments marker was placed on the grounds in June of last year and according to NPR, lasted less than 24 hours before Michael T. Reed II ran into it with his car. Reed is currently being held in the Arkansas State Mental Hospital, according to radio station KUAR.

A new marker had just been installed on the Capitol grounds last month with barricades to protect it. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
