Support Signs Pop Up for Religious Monuments

Some Indiana residents are protesting challenges to having Ten Commandments monuments on the lawns of courthouses by planting plastic commandment signs outdoors.

Vincennes beauty shop owner Karen Bruggeman decided to sell the plastic signs in March after learning that the Indiana Civil Liberties Union had filed a federal lawsuit demanding the removal of a Ten Commandments monument from the lawn of the Knox County Courthouse.

The group argues that displaying the Ten Commandments on the courthouse lawn violates the separation of church and state.

Since the lawsuit, Bruggeman has worked steadily to fill orders for the $10 plastic signs. She expects to sell her 1,000th sign next month.
