POTEAU, Okla. – A Ten Commandments monument that supporters want to put on the lawn of an Oklahoma county courthouse has been installed outside a bank for the time being.
More than 200 people turned out for this week's unveiling of the monument at Community State Bank in Poteau.
Le Flore County commissioners initially agreed to put the monument on the courthouse lawn. But they later decided to wait for a Supreme Court decision on a similar monument in neighboring Haskell County.
Haskell County commissioners are appealing a ruling that a monument on the courthouse lawn in Stigler is an unconstitutional endorsement of religion.
