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.

According to the court, the “obviously religious” symbol violates the state’s constitutional ban on using public property to benefit a religion.

The 7-2 ruling overturned a previous decision by a district court judge who determined that the monument could remain, reports KOCO 5 news.

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.
