Where are the Eagles Ten Commandments Monuments?
Little Rock, Arkansas    On June 26, 2017, the State of Arkansas went thru with its plan to erect a six foot tall Eagles look-a-like Ten Commandments monument on its capitol grounds in Little Rock.  The ACLU had previously indicated that it planned to file a lawsuit alleging that display of the monument would violate the First Amendment.    However, Michael Tate Reed, of Van Buren, Arkansas, drove his vehicle into the monument less than 24 hours after it was installed, toppling it and breaking into pieces. According to State Senator Jason Rapert (the mover behind the original monument), a replacement monument has been ordered. Peyette, Idaho     The JM Center received an email from Reginald Finley on May 28th notifying the Center of an Eagles monument in front of the Peyette, Idaho Police Dept. (at the City Hall building).  The Center has now identified 18 Eagles Ten Commandments monuments in Idaho -- the most of any state.  (The location of 15 Eagles monuments remain to be identified. See HELP find 15 Eagles monuments on this page,)

New Kensington, Pennsylvania      On March 21, 2017, the New Kensington Arnold School District removed its 1957 Eagles-donated Ten Commandments monument from Valley High School.  The monument is in the process of being relocated to the Mary Queen of Apostles School. This is a good choice since the 1957 monument mostly closely resembles the Catholic version of the Ten Commandments and Mary Queen of Apostles is a Catholic school.

Sue A. Hoffman bears false witness against me in her book In Search of God and the Ten Commandments (2014) by accusing me of an “insatiable desire to destroy every monolith.” (P. 92) Instead, I advocate for the removal of religious symbols on public property consistent with the Estabishment Clause of the First Amendment.
