The Oklahoma Supreme Court has ruled that a 6 feet tall granite monument inscribed with the Ten Commandments must be removed from the grounds of State Capitol because it somehow benefits Christians and Jews. This overturns a 7-2 district court ruling saying the monument could stay. More on the story here and here.
Oklahoma Supreme Court Has Ruled The Ten Commandments Must Be Removed From the State Capitol

Also known as Lovettsville Lady, I am a Republican activist in the wilds of western Loudoun County.
If people were as interested in living by the Ten Commandments, as they were in seeing them put up in public, or taken down from public, my, what a better place the world would be.
I think just about everybody knows where to find a copy of the Ten Commandments.
Instead of talking about where one can read the Ten Commandments, how about talking about living by them?
So build a bunch of light weight full size replicas of the monument. Then the state’s churches can have volunteers stand silently along all approaches to the capitol and let the manned monuments speak for themselves.
True story: the legislator who paid to have the statue erected in 2012 was my family doctor when I was growing up. I lived a few hundred yards away from him, and used to go to his house for local GOP meetings.
