PA Group Erects 2nd 10 Commandments Monument



A southwestern Pennsylvania community group has erected a second Ten Commandments monument — this one in front of a church — in the wake of a lawsuit by an atheists' group challenging a similar monument on public school grounds.
 
Thou Shalt Not Move was formed by a local businessman and a pastor after the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation sued to remove a monument at the Connellsville Area School District. That federal lawsuit is still pending. The group raised enough money by selling Ten Commandments yard signs to buy 14 granite monuments it intends to place at various sites in the community about 35 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.
 
The first was erected in front of a fraternal club last month. Sunday's was placed in front of the St. Paul AME Church in nearby Uniontown.
