    An Oklahoma commission voted on Tuesday to remove a privately funded granite monument of the Ten Commandments from the State Capitol grounds, after a judge ordered its removal by Oct. 12.

    The Capitol Preservation Commission, which oversees art displays in public spaces, voted 7-1 to authorize the Office of Management and Enterprise Services to remove the monument.

    The Oklahoma Supreme Court in June had ordered the monument, which was erected in 2012, removed because the state constitution bans the use of state property for the benefit of a religion.

    A judge earlier this month gave Oklahoma until Oct. 12 to remove the 6-foot-tall (1.8-meter) monument, denying a request from state Attorney General Scott Pruitt to leave it in place. The monument has strong support of Oklahoma's Republican leadership.

    John Estus, a spokesman for the Office of Management and Enterprise Services, said it was unclear where the monument would be placed.

    Oklahoma Representative Mike Ritze, a Republican, paid $10,000 to erect the monument, which sparked petitions from other groups for room to place their own monuments on Capitol grounds including New York-based Satanists and the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

    The state Supreme Court's ruling in June prompted some conservative legislators to look at impeaching the justices or amending the Oklahoma Constitution.

    Couldn't have been more clear.

    lies all lies.

    if they were really that concerned about religion they would stop having defendants swear that their testimony is true and stop saying the pledge of allegiance in the schools.

    None of those questions require a prime mover.

    its a special kind of hubris to require a prime mover; most people merely chose to acknowledge or deny one.

    It has become fashionable to denigrate those who chose to follow the practices of Christianity. The crowd will always shift in its ideology, but there are some simple human characteristics that endure. For some reason we choose to be "spiritual". What's right; what's wrong? We'll never be able to prove it in our mortal plane. I'd choose to believe that those who choose to improve the human condition through their "spirituality" will have the best chance at eternal reward, whether for their own selfish reward for their own spirit or for their everlasting genetic legacy on this earth.

    When I get cancer, I will choose not to believe it. But, instead, believe that Yahweh Sabaoth, Lord of Armies, is going to let me live in his cloud kingdom.

    Let's see if that works out for me.

    Obviously, you don't understand. It's OK; I'm not hunting recruits. You believe what you want.
