Texas cowboys ride 100 miles to protest Ten Commandments removal

When it comes to upholding American values, God bless the U.S. military … and cowboys.

A group of Texas cowboys rode 100 miles on horseback this week to take a stand against the removal of a Ten Commandments monument from the Oklahoma state Capitol grounds earlier this month, according to Fox News.

Members of the Texoma Cowboy Church in Wichita Falls, Texas, made the trek to hand-deliver a stone tablet engraved with the Ten Commandments to Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, on Friday. The action was in response to the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruling that the monument violated a state constitutional ban on the use of public funds or property for religious purposes.

“We’re riding for the law of God today,” said church leader, Rev. John Riggs. “We fully believe that this country was founded upon the principles of God’s word. It breaks our hearts to see where this country is headed and to see the removal of the law of God from our land, from our buildings.”

Refreshingly, Fallin spoke of the importance of Christian values while receiving the tablet.

“You’re certainly standing up for our Christian values and the Ten Commandments, which is very important to the state of Oklahoma,” Fallin said, calling the Texas cowboys “good neighbors.”

The tablet will be displayed in her office, Fallin said.

The Republican governor is leading an effort to give residents an opportunity to vote for an amendment to the state constitution that would lift the ban imposed by the high court. The state legislature is GOP-controlled.
