High Court Passes on OK Ten Commandments

Ad Feedback

The U.S. Supreme Court has decided not to get involved in a Ten Commandments battle in Oklahoma.

The high court left in place a lower court's decision to remove a Ten Commandments monument from government property.

Last year, a three-judge panel of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the monument on the lawn of the Haskell County Courthouse in Haskell County, Okla., endorses religion and must be removed.

"Whoever was the judge in this, I feel sorry for him on Judgment Day," Haskell County Commissioner Mitch Worsham said of the circuit court's ruling.

The Supreme Court's decision is not unprecedented. In 2005, the court said in two cases that deciding whether the Commandments can be displayed on government property is a case-by-case matter.
