This is great. I hate that it was destroyed in the first place but it’s good to know someone as successful as Troy Duhon and Bob Katz are paying attention to things like this going on in the country.
They decided to donate $25,000 freaking dollars to rebuild and reinstall the Commandments monument that was destroyed at the Arkansas state capitol just weeks ago. And with that, the total donation via private funds is $55,000 — which shows how much people care about this and care about their Christianity.
As written for The Daily Caller Joshua Gill:
Film executives donated $25,000 Thursday to rebuild and reinstall the 10 Commandments monument on the grounds of Arkansas’ state capitol.
Executive producers of the “God’s Not Dead” film franchise, Troy Duhon and Bob Katz, presented the donation to Republican Arkansas State Sen. Jason Rapert at a news conference, alongside representatives from media groups.
The $25,000 donation brings the total of private funds raised for the rebuilding of the monument to $55,000, according to Arkansas Online. Mike Berry, deputy general counsel for the First Liberty Institute, also attended to explain the legality of the monument.
“The law is clearly on the side of the 10 commandments monument, however, and so any lawsuit that anybody tried to bring to try to force the removal or destruction of the 10 commandments monument would be fruitless,” Berry told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
The ACLU threatened to file a lawsuit against the installation of the 10 commandments monument less than 24 hours after the original was installed.
Michael Tate Reed of Van Buren, Ark., beat the ACLU to the punch, however, when he filmed himself ramming his truck into the monument, shattering the statue to pieces. While the ACLU has not yet issued a statement about the second monument, Berry said he is confident the group will have no legal standing to challenge it in light of SCOTUS’ ruling in Van Orden v Perry, which upheld the legality of the 10 Commandments monument at the Texas state capitol.
