Someone drove across the lawn at the Oklahoma Capitol building and rammed into the controversial six foot tall granite monument erected there depicting the biblical Ten Commandments.
The monument, which has sparked considerable controversy in Oklahoma since it was put there via private funding in part by State Rep. Mike Ritize in 2012 was smashed into several pieces.
The Ten Commandments In Better Days
The perpetrator abandoned the vehicle and fled on foot.
While some groups like the American Civil Liberties Union have argued that the religious scripture posted by the government building violates the separation of church and state, others have celebrated it.
Who could it be… who could strike down a monument to The Word…. Could it be Satan?!
This past year The Satanic Temple out of New York raised $28 thousand dollars to create a Satanic statue featuring the demon Baphomet with two children which they hope will be placed next to the Oklahoma Ten Commandments monument. They argue if the Ten Commandments are allowed to be placed on the State Capitol steps, than their religion needs to be represented as well.
