Senator Jason Rapert, R-Conway, said Tuesday that work on a new Ten Commandments monument is complete after the original memorial was smashed and destroyed only 24 hours after it was installed on State Capitol grounds earlier this summer.

All that must take place now is for the Secretary of State’s office to move forward with approving the re-installation of the new monument so that another dedication ceremony can be held for the controversial religious memorial to the 10 tablets of stone ascribed by God that Moses brought down from Mount Sinai, Rapert said.

“Actually, the replacement monument is already finished, and we are just now at a point where they are finalizing if the pedestal needs any further repairs or in how to replace some security post barriers that prevent somebody, obviously now that it has happened, we don’t want to create a situation where that happens again,” Rapert told Talk Business & Politics.    MORE
