Ten Commandments monument in Rush Springs

Ten Commandments monument in Rush Springs

RUSH SPRINGS, Okla._A month after the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled the Ten Commandments monument should be removed from the state Capitol grounds, Rush Springs has set up their own Ten Commandments at the main intersection in town.

The Ten Commandments monument in Rush Springs is on private property and the city government says they have no problem with it sitting at the busy intersection. Duane Gibbs says his church asked him to place it in front of his business shortly after the state Supreme Court ruling. Gibbs says it has nothing to do with the ruling.

Locals seem to support the monument saying it is good to have it placed in a part of town where everyone will see. Gibbs also says because Rush Springs is a religious town he does not think this will be a problem, and that the monument will stay up for a long time.
