A stone monument of the Ten Commandments that sits on a street behind the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington and was the subject of controversy in the past has been toppled by vandals.

The 3-foot-by-3-foot granite monument weighs 850 pounds and sits out front of the headquarters of Faith and Action, a Christian outreach ministry. The group installed the tablets in a garden outside its offices in 2006, and the group's president said the tablets were angled so that justices arriving at the high court would see them.

Had it been a monument with the Qur’an on it, there would be 24/7 news coverage, demanding the beheading for the intolerant racist who did this.

Sign of the times to come people, it is only going to get worse.

Faith and Action is a wonderful group. They were arrested in Montgomery Alabama trying to stop the removal of the Ten Commandments monument in the court house. http://www.faithandaction.org/web/category/headlines/

Unless I’m reading the article wrong, it appears that this action occurred on private property.

I feel sorry for the perps as Christians love to get retribution for anyone offending their silly religious "cult"...my guess is the perps will be beheaded within the week.

Wait...do I have the right group of people here? Oh, that's right, Christians don't call for a jihad or beheading if someone defaces or defiles one of its followers' holy relics like another "religion" out there...silly me.

I dare these perps to do the same thing (roughly) to a local mosque and see how the act is received.

Yes, it is on private property and was paid for by donations (including mine).

It's a private property issue. Two predictions:
A) It won't be charged as a "hate crime", and
B) The perps vote Democrat (if they vote at all)

This country has become the home of godless, freeloading, America-hating pigs. A real freak show.

The ramp up against Christians in the last 3 or 4 weeks has been more and more alarming...not just against the West...Christians better band together and get ready to fight back big time.

You know America is in big trouble when the atheists proclaim that they are starting a “super PAC” to get their God Free candidates “elected”.

Its high time for Constantine to mandate his Edict of Toleration.

10 Commandments Monument Toppled in Washington

The stone tablet - face down on the ground ala Dagon - is merely stating the obvious:

Satan realizes his days are numbered and is pulling out all the stops. Unfortunately these misguided, and probably unsaved individuals do not realize they are pawns for the evil one.

Last days events going down. http://patburt.com/

What did God, Jesus, born again believers ever do to deserve this retaliation except shine the light of Truth throughout the world. I would imagine these evil doers didn’t pull this stunt in daylight

Dear God, please help us. . .in Jesus name, Amen.

Since DC has to have the most cameras, one would assume that they have video of the people doing it. I am surprised that it is not viewed live at all times since it is near the SC building.

It’s been said here before, every morning when I wake up and find that God had not buried this country in fire and brimstone; I marvel at His patience.

Oh, lighten up. The leftwing socialist/communist kooks are just showing us their tolerance. Again.
