Panel To Discuss Ten Commandments, Satan Monuments At Arkansas Capitol
LITTLE ROCK (KFSM) – A grounds commission will begin its review of proposals to set up monuments near the state Capitol.
The proposed monuments are of the Ten Commandments and Satan, according to KTHV.
Secretary of State Mark Martin has set the meeting in September with the Capitol Arts and Grounds Commission.
The Ten Commandments monument would be privately funded.
The Satanic Temple has asked the commission to approve its proposed Baphomet statue, which it has asked the state to place next to or directly in front of the Ten Commandments monument.
Martin’s office has also set up a hotline for the public to call in with comments about the proposed monuments.
