More and more states in the USA are distancing themselves from the Ten Commandments. The State of Oklahoma decided to remove a plaque from its capital in the middle of the night, apparently to avoid protesters:
October 6, 2015
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.http://www.wnd.com/2015/10/oklahoma-quietly-removes-10-commandments-statue/#f0IzH0cRB0Q3h4wL.99

This does not bode well for the USA. .. read full article
