Arkansas is getting closer to re-erecting the 10 commandments statue that was illegally installed on public property. (That 6,000 pound statue was destroyed by a schizophrenic Christian driving a Dodge while quoting “Braveheart.”)
Erecting these monoliths is a huge waste of money. Their purpose is nothing other than for Christians to virtue-signal and rally around their politicians during the inevitable manufactured controversy, while they raise a middle finger made of granite to everyone else who doesn’t hold their beliefs. The primary message the statues broadcast is “We the Christians have more power than anyone else,” and that they have special privileges and have a defacto exception from having to follow secular law, which other religions must follow in the area.
