Okla. AG: Ruling Against 10 Commandments Monument Was 'Wrong'
The state Supreme Court ruled that the Ten Commandments monument at Oklahoma's state Capitol must be taken down, because it benefits Christian and Jewish faiths.
Oklahoma's highest court said that the Ten Commandments chiseled into the granite monument are "obviously religious in nature and are an integral part of the Jewish and Christian faiths."
Scott Pruitt, the Oklahoma State Attorney General, said on "Hannity" tonight that the Supreme Court should re-hear the case, because he thinks they made the "wrong decision."
He said they've filed a petition with the court for the case to be reheard and the court has requested briefs in response to his petition.
"When you look at the precedent of the court itself, they have cases that stand for the proposition that this monument is constitutional," Pruitt added. "We had examples of this nationally and this monument has been modeled after something in Texas, the federal courts have said that it’s constitutional."
Pruitt asserted that what "the state Supreme Court did in Oklahoma yesterday is say that the First Amendment protections provided by the U.S. Constitution are insufficient and that the state of Oklahoma should take a different approach."
He also said this argument is part of a larger debate about what the First Amendment truly protects.
