Saline Co. Atheist Society submits 'wall of separation' monument for state capital grounds

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- The Saline Atheist and Skeptic Society has submitted an application to the Secretary of State’s office for the Arkansas Capitol Arts and Grounds Commission to be reviewed ahead of their September 13 meeting. 

This meeting should now include submissions for a Ten Commandments monument, a Satanic Temple Baphomet statue, and now the secular community’s Wall of Separation monument. 

“The founding fathers knew that separating religion and government was a good idea, which is why they placed the concept in our 1st Amendment,” said Thomas in a press release.  “In looking for a way to participate on the lawn, a physical, decorative brick wall placed between the religious monuments and our Capitol building seemed fitting.”

The wall, which will be eight feet in height, will be financed through a brick-by-brick campaign that will "encourage citizens, both religious and non-religious, that value the wall of separation concept to join in."
