If Brogdon wants to waste his money on it then he should go for it. Hope he leaves enough room on it for a name, date of birth, and date of death because it will wind up as a headstone. It will eventually removed from the capital because it will be proven to be a religious document and not a historical one. It will be an open and shut case. I hope he also has to pay to have it removed plus the court costs that the Oklahoma taxpayers are going to incur for the obvious infraction on our rights.

Oh great. Well, I guess you guys won't mind if we put up a copy of the Qur'an next to it then, since we are going to start spewing religion from our state government.

Keep your religion to your $@#! self.

Keep it out of the government area. Religion is a personal belief and should not be allowed anywhere near politics and our government.

Yeah we wouldn't want "the sheeple" to get confused over church and state since they're already confused
with daily life.

It's funny how people get upset about the ten commandments. Folks, God doesn't need a momument, that is what the mountains, and beautiful sunsets represent. Just know this, as you spew your hate over anything acknowleging that God exist, He knows you exist, and even though you deny him or deny the reverence He deserves, He has a purpose for you and the plans he has set in motion for you are good and not evil. Think about this, when certain groups that you probably support, ask to stop the hate, try heeding that advice. I am not even going to get into goverment monies that are way more wasteful than a momument expressing appreciation for our founding fathers who modeled our laws and constitution from this historical document. I love you folks even if you eventually have the precious stone removed.

Contrary to the belief of many people, prayer is widely permitted in U.S. public schools. Students can pray in school busses, at the flag-pole, in student religious clubs, in the cafeteria, in the corridors, etc. Alternatively, a student can come early to class, sit quietly, and pray silently. However, a U.S. Supreme Court decision ( Engel v. Vitale; 1962) ruled that prayer is not normally permitted in public school classrooms when a class is in session. It would violate the principle of church-state separation which, according to the Court, is inferred by the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The separation principle is extended to public schools as an arm of the government.

I am proud to be in a state where fear does not play a part in our everyday life. I bet every atheist just before they die says or thinks to themselves "OH GOD."

This country was founded on the idea that my God my be different from your God. Now our tax payer money s going to go to lawyers fees to defend this monument.

And to the moron that wants prayer in school, I hope your kid(s) get a Wiccan teacher. Your kid will learn more about the true origin of 'christian' holidays than they ever would otherwise.

I'm Catholic and I would prefer to pray with my kids and teach them religion myself. If I wanted them to pray in school or learn religion in school, I would send them to a catholic school. I went to a catholic school as a kid, but some of my other siblings went to public school. They received a better education.

For the morons that don't read much, you will find the Ten Commandments engraved on the wall at the Supreme Court. Nuff said.
