Well, that didn't last long

Newly erected Arkansas Ten Commandments monument destroyed

A new monument in the US state of Arkansas listing the Ten Commandments has been destroyed less than 24 hours after it was unveiled.

A suspect is reported to have driven his car into the structure early on Wednesday while filming on his mobile phone and posting footage on Facebook.

Yeah, he's bonkers. However, he's got good taste. This is the second piece of Christian idolatry he's smashed up.

to chip in and buy this man a used army surplus tank. These little excursions off road have to play hell with his car. Seems like the least we could do.
