Christian Legislators Put Up Ten Commandments Monument in Oklahoma… and Misspell ‘Sabbath’

Earlier today, a Ten Commandments monument was placed on the grounds of the state Capitol building in Oklahoma City:

The Republican-controlled Legislature authorized the privately funded monument in 2009, and former Democratic Gov. Brad Henry signed the bill into law.

The bill’s author, Rep. Mike Ritze, and his family paid about $10,000 for the monument’s construction.

“I think it’s a beautiful work of art, and it’s identical to ones in Texas, Utah and 200 other monuments that have been in place for years,” said Ritze, R-Broken Arrow.

Ritze, of course, insists this has nothing to do with religion. And he said it with a straight face. Amazing.

While a lawsuit may be filed over this, I find it amusing that whoever created this “beautiful work of art” couldn’t even manage to spell the word “Sabbath” correctly.

Maybe they should’ve asked an atheist to edit the writing on it.
