Under cover of darkness and with security present, the Oklahoma Ten Commandments monument was removed last night for placement elsewhere

The statue should sue under RFRA for an exemption to that whole Article IV nonsense.

HAVE NO FEAR


Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin has promised to work on an amendment to the state constitution that will allow public resources to be used for religious displays.

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has vowed to ensure that public prayers can occur during public school sporting events.


I can think of no more important issues for my government to address.

So, you're saying that Oklahoma might actually have to pay for the Lucifer statue. Awesome!

You heathens just don't get it, as long as you properly idolize a statue of some stone tablets, God will fix all the other problems. That is the problem with modern peoples, they are always trying to fix things themselves. If they would just sit around marveling at statues, God would take care of them.

I thought you might want to know that an anagram of "Governor Mary Fallin", is "O, Mr! Rely on Vagina! ROFL".

No?

Ah well.

They're not idiots -- they got this far in politics, didn't they?
So they have to know that this stuff is dead on its face and they're just wasting buckets of money in court costs as the inevitable (and successful) challenges just wend their way through the court system.

Strike that -- they're not wasting money at all, since this is just advertising money for the inevitable campaigns for Congress on the WE STOOD UP FOR GOD platform.

The Church of Satan is now my favorite organization of professional trolls. They have succeeded where the ACLU failed.

What kind of monument will they construct for my apparently new religion of Veganism? I imagine anything they put up will eventually, if not right off of the bat, start to stink something awful.

It will probably be something like Ronald McDonald being fed to hogs.

At this point I'm just wondering if the Christians need all of these symbols around all of the time to assist them as they pray for the guts and courage to be less insecure. The perpetual "I want my symbols here and there and everywhere!" smells like a confidence issue. Are Christians perpetually anxious because the Jews and the Hindus repeatedly whoop them when things like education and wealth are evaluated?

I wonder if I could get professional sports declared a religion, then use this ruling to outlaw public money being spent on temples arenas?

Was it really necessary to remove it "under the cover of night" and "by a heavy security presence"? Seems a bit of overkill.

I'm pretty sure noone has ever reported works being done during night time hours as anything other than "under the cover of night". It probably reminds journalists of their dreams of being successful novelists.

It would have been much cooler if a Kaiju Moses had shown up to remove the monument. Something like this:

It already is; it just needs a little push.
During Deflategate around here, the only thing missing was the rending of garments and tearing of beards. We had the bloodletting and gnashing of teeth covered.
