I agree with it. Oklahoma clearly can not keep the Ten Commandments monument on state capitol property. And supporters can't cite the Texas case for keeping it. This is because the Texas 10 Commandments monument is a small part of a monument garden (17 monuments and 21 historical markers on 22 acres), not a stand alone statue. It had also been there since the 60s for its historical significance.

I'm glad my state rep and senator don't appear wanting to get mixed up in this controversy. And I believe it won't hurt their chances at winning reelections one bit.

Agree, but part of my post was deleted, so I'll try again.
My question was why can't the State deed the statue and a small part of surrounding land to a private individual?

Let me know which day they're out there to remove it and I'll make sure I post up in a tree and have a little target practice with the .22!

That's just down right shocking! I never thought you were sober enough to climb a tree!

Better is that some church or individual set up a space to move it to so its not right in front of a government building. It's message is religious so its setting should also be. I'm sure there's plenty of churches in OKC who would host it. But the point is that it does NOT belong on the capital steps.

I see the old one as unknowingly having a reason to be there so when the car ran into it it didn't go right through the hundred year old walls of the statehouse. I'd rather the state spend money on a neat old building than a chunk of metal which belongs in a church.

Have your beliefs and your religion but it does NOT belong sitting near the door of the statehouse.

What about the US folding money with the words IN GOD WE TRUST you're carrying around? You might want to get rid of that, too.

The motto I dread ever seeing is "In Allah we trust." The dead horse cemetery is huge, since beating on the carcasses is a never ending situation. Any hot topic soon dooms the old gray mare.
