Oklahoma Supreme Court Rules that Ten Commandments Monument ‘Isn’t History’ and Must Be Removed from Capitol Grounds

Oklahoma’s state supreme court has ruled in a lopsided 7-2 decision that the monument to the Ten Commandments must be removed from the capitol grounds in Oklahoma City, OK.

This new decision reverses a lower court ruling that allowed the monument to remain standing.

The Oklahoma Supreme Court has ruled that a monument to the Ten Commandments must be removed from the state’s Capitol in Oklahoma City.

The state’s top court cited a clause in the Oklahoma Constitution that it says prohibits promotion of religion.

…The court also rejected the concept that the Ten Commandments were historic in nature. In its decision, the court insisted that “the Ten Commandments are obviously religious in nature and are an integral part of the Jewish and Christian faiths.”

The Ten Commandments are not historical? Since when?
