A granite monument of the Ten Commandments that sits across the street from the U.S. Supreme Court was toppled by vandals sometime over the weekend.
The monument sits in the front yard of 209 Second St. NE, the headquarters of Faith and Action, an evangelical Christian group led by the Rev. Rob Schenck.
The 3-foot by 3-foot granite sculpture weighs 850 pounds.

850 lbs?! Must’ve been atheist dykes.
And there will be some who cheer this, but hen wonder why today’s youth can be so disrespectful when they vandalized or disrespect something sacred to Libs.
No, no, no. It was an expression of liberals against Christianity - and since liberals did it, it’s totally okay.
Is it just me, or do I feel a revolution coming ???
That’s symbolic. Everything is symbolic to the left. They want to topple the Christian/Jewish foundation of our civilization.
Of course. Thanks for the correction. heh
Maybe it was some of those gay blacks that go around playing the knockout game.
The forked tongued legions of Satan, or Democrats as they’re known to the media, were busy beavers.
The revolution already happened and we lost, people are starting to notice it now.
Kids raised with no moral fiber. All is left is savagery.
Faith and Action had a difficult time getting permits from DC to put this monument up a few years ago. They will put it back. If anyone wants to help they have a website.
How do they know it wasn’t Ostrogoths? Vandals always get all the blame ...
Here is the story behind the monument. http://www.faithandaction.org/web/category/headlines/
they objected to the proscription against coveting thy neighbor’s ass...
I guess I’ve always assumed there were surveillance cameras on DC monuments.
“Kids raised with no moral fiber. All is left is savagery.”
To the left commiting political terrorism is considered a show of moral fiber. After all, they are attacking icons important to the “hate-filled, intolerant, homophobic, baby-killing right wingers.”
Today they are phyically attacking the symbols, tomorrow they will physically attack the people who revere them. Mark my words.
Curious to see if this was a targeted attack, or if it was teenagers being stupid. Either is inexcusable.
Since the monument weighs 850#, I'd likely lean towards the former. However, having done my share of incredibly stupid things as a bored teenager, I could see the latter as a possibility.
Stupidity can be rectified, usually with a required application of a generous amount of sweat and elbow grease. If it was a targeted attack, though, the fix isn't so easy.
Oops... didn’t notice that it’s a private monument and not public!
I think so. Good words.
Near Philadelphia, a church had a number of religious statues decapitated between 2 & 4 AM last Thursday, Sept 19. Wonder if the two are connected, maybe teen “flashmob”?
Wow - good intel. I would say every ‘Baby Jesus’ is going to be a target during this year’s Nativity...
Perhaps Islamists did it.
They’re doing it in every other country.
No, we have only just begun to fight.
That was mere foreplay. Where they have burned books, they will end in burning human beings.

Cribbed from a quote website, though I thought it was Thomas Mann, perhaps he quoted Heine somewhere in his writings.
