10 Commandments statue must be removed from state Capitol, Oklahoma Supreme Court rules

Oklahoma's Supreme Court says the Ten Commandments monument at the state Capitol must be removed because it indirectly benefits the Jewish and Christian faiths in violation of the state's constitution.
The court ruled Tuesday that the Oklahoma Constitution bans using public property to benefit a religion, and said the Ten Commandments are "obviously religious in nature."
Attorney General Scott Pruitt argued that the monument is nearly identical to a Texas monument that was found constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court. Oklahoma justices said the local monument violates Oklahoma's constitution.
Private funds were used to erect the monument in 2012. Since then, others have asked for space, including a Nevada Hindu leader, animal rights advocates, the satirical Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster and a group pushing for a Satan statue.
Gov. Mary Fallin's representatives said she is talking to Pruitt about the state's legal options about the statue's ordered removal. Pruitt's representatives said the attorney general's office will explore legal options after it is finished reviewing the Oklahoma Supreme Court's decision.
Pruitt released this statement:
“Quite simply, the Oklahoma Supreme Court got it wrong. The court completely ignored the profound historical impact of the Ten Commandments on the foundation of Western law. Furthermore, the court’s incorrect interpretation of Article 2, Section 5 contradicts previous rulings of the court. In response, my office will file a petition with the court for a rehearing in light of the broader implications of this ruling on other areas of state law. Additionally, we are requesting a stay of the enforcement of the court’s order until the court can consider the petition for rehearing. Finally, if Article 2, Section 5 is going to be construed in such a manner by the court, it will be necessary to repeal it.”

By swearing on the Bible in the Court House may benefit the Jewish and Christian faiths as well so maybe that practice should stop and on public property no less.

Maybe the law books need changing as well. They have been using the Ten Commandments in their laws such as you can't (lie) to law officers and in court, the law says you can't steal, you can't kill/murder, and some states may still have the law against Adultery.

Why are they using our Religious Laws in their laws books and in public buildings no less.

Where are you ACLU when we need you? Why should States get to pic and choose which of our Religious Laws they want to enforce? Why should they get to use any of them. They are not suppose to promote any Religious Laws are they?

I pointed this out so the ACLU can go after all the states for this same violation.

If I'm an Atheist then why should some state tell me I can't lie and steal. The state is forcing me to follow their Religion.

Judges these days sure do make things confusing with their decisions.

I hope to soon see most make-believe Judges go to prison for illegal imprisonment and murder as they are impersonating government officials and are only Corporate employees. They are sending people to death and prison. It's like an employee of Tupperware doing these things. I've seen no Tupperware employees doing these things.
