    In an unexpected triumph of commonsense jurisprudence, the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled earlier today that the Ten Commandments monument is in violation of the State Constitution’s strict ban on using public property to promote religion.

    No public money or property shall ever be appropriated, applied, donated, or used, directly or indirectly, for the use, benefit, or support of any sect, church, denomination, or system of religion, or for the use, benefit, or support of any priest, preacher, minister, or other religious teacher or dignitary, or sectarian institution as such.

    Huge props to lead plaintiff Bruce Prescott and the entire legal team at the ACLU. It is truly wonderful to hear that our Blaine Amendment finally has some legal teeth.

    Now let’s all get to work to keep it that way.
