Shoppers are in for a huge surprise: Mall owner defends his new statue … nobody was expecting this

A Lewisville, Texas mall is about to get an 8-foot statue of the Ten Commandments and, far from seeing it as a controversial statement, the owner hopes it will “touch [the viewer’s] heart and give them new hope that day.”

Speaking to “Fox & Friends” on Saturday, Music City Mall owner John Bushman spoke of the positive impact displaying a “fundamental piece of God’s plan” can have on his customers and the community as a whole.

“We just feel like if we expose God’s word out to everyone that it might have an impact on people and be a positive thing for anyone,” Bushman said. “We intend to make this a family shopping environment for all families, and families I think all have a desire for the kid to grow up right, and if they see the Ten Commandments or are impacted by it, I think it’s a positive thing.”

Bushman owns several other businesses that also display the commandments, including shopping centers, hotels, and a restaurant, and he says that overall public reaction has been “very good.”

“We’re not denigrating anyone when we do this,” he said. “We’re certainly making the statement that this is our belief, and after all it is the fundamental piece of God’s plan. It goes from loving Him to loving our neighbor. It goes to love and peace.”

When asked how he would respond to critics, Bushman said, “We just hope they’re impacted positive by it.”

“We just think it connotes love and peace, and that’s what we all need more of in this world.”
