Thou shalt not place a Ten Commandments monument on Oklahoma Capitol grounds.
This was the ruling of Oklahoma’s Supreme Court Tuesday concerning a 6-foot-tall granite monument featuring the biblical Old Testament laws.

Attorney General Scott Pruitt is not happy about the decision. He says the monument is historical, not religious, and is almost identical to a Texas monument the U.S. Supreme Court found constitutional.
