A stone monument of the Ten Commandments that sits across the street from the U.S. Supreme Court was toppled by vandals over the weekend.
The 3-by-3-foot monument, which weighs 850 pounds, sits in front of the headquarters of the evangelical Christian group Faith and Action.
“We’re confounded, absolutely mystified, how a collection of people could get away with this kind of damage,” said the Rev.
