Oklahome Gov. Mary Fallin says the Ten Commandments monument on the state Capitol will remain despite an Oklahoma Supreme Court ruling that it is unconstitutional and should be removed.
In the very short run, resistance can be justified by the attorney general’s request for a rehearing of the case. But Fallin also is relying on a potential effort to amend the Oklahoma Constitution to allow the monument. That could entail a period of some months before a vote where she would presumably allow the monument to remain in defiance of the court order.
