Michael Tate Reed – Alleged Serial Destroyer of Ten Commandments
A video camera at the Arkansas Capitol dome recorded a Dodge Dart ramming into the new 10 Commandments monument destroying it. The three-ton granite monument that had been installed less than 24 hours before its violent, pre-dawn demise on the southwest lawn of the state capitol in Little Rock. And this isn’t the first time in 2012 Reed did the same thing to another monument in Oklahoma.
Reed appears to allude to the Oklahoma toppling incident in a Facebook post before the Arkansas statue was rammed.
“I’m a firm believer that for our salvation we not only have faith in Jesus Christ, but we also obey the commands of God and that we confess Jesus as Lord,” he says in the post. “But one thing I do not support is the violation of our constitutional right to have the freedom that’s guaranteed to us, that guarantees us the separation of church and state because no one religion should the government represent.”
Later, he says he’s “back at it again,” and asks for people to donate money to help repair his car.
