OKLAHOMA CITY, Oct. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, Liberty Institute, who along with Oklahoma's Attorney General, represents the State of Oklahoma in the Ten Commandments case, condemns the violence an unknown assailant perpetrated last night on the Ten Commandments monument in Oklahoma, which an Oklahoma judge ruled constitutional last month. While Liberty Institute is not authorized to communicate on behalf of the State of Oklahoma, Hiram Sasser, Liberty Institute's Director of Litigation, issues the following statement on behalf of Liberty Institute:
"We are shocked and saddened that someone would engage in such a hostile and violent act against a passive monument. We are hopeful the ACLU and the American Atheists who have brought two separate lawsuits against the Ten Commandments monument will publicly condemn this senseless act of violence against a passive monument."
