Oklahoma quietly removes 10 Commandments

A Ten Commandments monument that stood on the lawns of the Oklahoma Capitol was removed quietly in the dead of night in order to avoid sparking protests.

The state paid a contractor about $4,700 to take down the monument after the Oklahoma Supreme Court found it violated a law that bars placement of monuments that show preference for “any sect, church, denomination or system of religion” on public property, the Daily Mail reported.

The monument, which was funded by private dollars, was approved for placement at the Capitol building by state lawmakers in 2009. Bruce Prescott, a Baptist minister, complained the statue’s presence violated the state constitution, and demanded its removal.

Contractors hired by the state took down the monument about 10:30 p.m. Monday, and sent it to the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs’ office down the road from the Capitol, said John Estus, with the Office of ...

I thought SermonAudio had a thread on the 10 commandments monument that was destroyed in Arkansas? It actually received quite a bit of press.

An Arizona independent film studio has donated $25,000 to help replace the recently destroyed Ten Commandments tribute monument on the Arkansas state capitol grounds.
Pure Flix, an independent faith and family entertainment studio based in Phoenix, gave the contribution to the American History and Heritage Foundation at the Arkansas State capitol on July 6.

The "pastor" is a member of the cooperative Baptist association and they're for everything from late term abortion to gay marriage. They are a separatist sect who want nothing to do with religion or the historical basis of the mosaic law and founding of our own judicial system. So the Oklahoma judicial system sides with a sect leader, it's a piece of granite that has the Ten Commandments on it. And there are Christians in Syria who have been beheaded and their bodies are crucified. The enemies of faith in this nation are wimps. And we are feeling sorry for ourselves, way too often.

“I’m not opposed to the Ten Commandments. The first sermon I ever preached was on the Ten Commandments. I just opposed to it being on public property.” - Prescott

Lisa, I skipped over the article, but read it after noticing your comment. Now, isn't that interesting! Just surprised to see someone in his position being the voice screaming for constitutional justice on this particular matter.

And the spasm
Between the potency
And the existence
Between the essence
And the descent
Falls the Shadow
