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.

    I live in Arkansas and I’ve watched the coverage of this nut case on the local news. He pulled the same stunt in Oklahoma. He’ll likely be incarcerated for this one, though it may be in a mental facility somewhere. One of his neighbors said that he was a nice enough guy but whenever he got started talking about anything that stirred him up, there was no shutting him up. The state has already ordered another monument and it should be delivered shortly.

    Put up bollards let him hit those. Or better yet, involuntary admission into a high security facility for psychiatric care of his schizoaffective disorder before his voices tell him to run over people. There’s too many frickin’ loons running around loose as it is.

    There is nothing in the Constitution about the separation of church and state. It just says the FEDERAL government cannot create laws to establish or favor one form of religion over another. The states can do what they want. If a state wants to put up monuments relating to religion then so be it. That’s the 10th amendment.

      True. The statement that gets quoted the most was from Presetident Jefferson to a Baptist (I believe) church group and stated that the separation (ie. non-government intervention/support) was “so self-evident” that it should never be an issue. (My paraphrasing, I will look for the original document.)

      So be ready for a Muslim and Satanic and other monument to be placed right next to the 10 Commandments. This is exactly why there shouldn’t be any religious monuments on government grounds. Not sure why Christians don’t realize if you allow one, you must allow all. It’s just a bad policy.

      Protest if you feel it’s wrong. But if it is not in your State (ie. jurisdiction) or on Federal property, keep your actions limited to verbage. This guy is committing crimnal acts and needs to be incarserated and forced to pay compensation; even if he’s nuts.
