In Oklahoma Today . . .


From June: In a 7-2 decision, [the Oklahoma Supreme Court] found that the statue violated Article 2, Section 5 of the state’s Constitution, which says: “No public money or property shall ever be appropriated, applied, donated, or used, directly or indirectly, for the use, benefit, or support of any sect, church, denomination, or system of religion, or for the use, benefit, or support of any priest, preacher, minister, or other religious teacher or dignitary, or sectarian institution as such.”

Thank God. Oh, wait... Thank... Uh... I guess just "thanks."

Why do religious folks feel everyone should have to share in their fairy tale.

It's the law whether we like it or not.

As the son of a Baptist preacher and raised very conservatively.....

I fully agree with this. Otherwise... would we be OK with a statue of the Koran at the court house.... or any other non-christian religious statue? The allowance of the ten commandments or christian article is mixes church and state... but because we are mostly Christian, we have overlooked it.

This really is long overdue and understood.... but understandably going to hurt feelings who don't see the big picture of other religions invading our government.

Yep! That did it! The State of Oklahoma and possibly the country was saved today!! I mean, it's obvious how our country is getting better every day thanks to all these great improvements coming from the liberals.

ISIS would have just blown it up and beheaded whoever installed it.

Score one for Liberty! No religion should be sponsored by the state. Of course the weak-minded won't see things this way.

Oh heck! I was really looking forward to having my monument placed on the grounds, close to the Commandments. Because if you let one do it, you have to let all do it. Dang it!

I think it was because Satanists wanted to put up the goat-head statue or something akin to it...?

Just erect a piece of marble with nothing on it to satisfy the atheists.
