The Thomas More Law Center announced on Tuesday that the Society of Separationists failed in its efforts to remove a Ten Commandments monument that has stood since 1971 in a public park in Pleasant Grove City, Utah.
Utah federal district court Judge Bruce S. Jenkins dismissed the lawsuit brought by the Separationists against the City and several of its officials.
According to a press release from the TMLC, Judge Jenkins ruled that the display of a Ten Commandments monument on public property does not violate the Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution.
He noted that the Ten Commandments are an "acknowledgment of one historic source of guidance and direction, one time-honored source of standards of human conduct."
