LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A prominent atheist activist organization is seeking to place a “no gods” display on the grounds of the Arkansas state capitol following the approval of a Ten Commandments monument proposed to be erected at the location.
As previously reported, Sen. Jason Rapert, R-Bigelow, had proposed the monument, which will be overseen by the Secretary of State and funded by private money. Rapert’s bill was approved in the House and Senate in March and April, and was subsequently signed by Gov. Asa Hutchinson.
