(EAGNEWS) — CONNELSVILLE, Pa. – A Pennsylvania junior high school is moving a Ten Commandments stone monolith from its campus after a $64,000 court battle resulted in a judge ruling the display unconstitutional.
“It doesn’t matter what the cost was, it was a fight that needed to be fought,” David Show, organizer with the group Thou Shall Not Move, told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “That’s something that should not be a problem in our schools.”
Show and others rallied to keep the 3,000-pound Ten Commandments stone monolith at Connellsville Junior High after Connellsville Area School District officials initially covered it with plywood in response to a complaint from the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation in the 2012-13 school year, according to the news site.
