Ten Commandments Monument Raised in Arkansas Capital

al.com

Workers have installed a Ten Commandments monument outside Arkansas’ Capitol, two years after lawmakers approved a measure permitting the statue on state grounds.

The 6-foot-tall monument was placed on the Capitol grounds early Tuesday. Opponents of the monument have said it amounts to an unconstitutional endorsement of religion and have threatened to sue.

Plans for Arkansas’ monument sparked a push by the Satanic Temple for a competing statue of Baphomet, a goat-headed, angel-winged creature accompanied by two children smiling at it. Efforts to install that display, however, were blocked by a law enacted this year requiring legislative approval before the commission could consider a monument proposal.

Arkansas’ monument is a replica of a display at the Texas Capitol that was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2005.

  1. The First amendment says “Congress” shall make no law—- . What that clearly means is that religion is left to the States. It is amazing how this has been twisted.

  2. One of these Communist drove their 2016 Dodge Dart into it breaking it into pieces at 4:47 am less than 24 hours after it was installed.

    It weighed 6,000 pounds, so I hope this Satanist did a lot of damage to his car.

  3. Too bad many of our folk in Arkansas don’t understand that the sixth law actually means “do not adulterate” as in do not mix your blood with the blood of other races.
