1of 14 Ten Commandments monuments in Connellsville installed at local club



CONNELLSVILLE, Pa. - Members of a grassroots group in Connellsville installed the first of 14 Ten Commandments monuments in front of a local club on Saturday.

The Thou Shalt Not Move group was formed after the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation sued to remove a Ten Commandments monument at Connellsville Junior High School.

The group sold yard signs to raise money for the new granite monuments.

The first monument will be placed outside the Fraternal Order of Eagles on South Arch Street.
