FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- Opponents of a Ten Commandments monument in Fargo, North Dakota, have filed a civil lawsuit against the city, asking that the granite marker be removed.
The Red River Freethinkers accuse the city of "unconstitutional conduct."
The Freethinkers contend that their rights were violated when Fargo refused to allow them to put up their own monument near the Ten Commandments monument on city property. The proposed monument would say, "The government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion."
The Freethinkers lost an earlier attempt to have the Ten Commandments monument removed. Federal Judge Ralph Erickson ruled in 2005 that the monument celebrates both religious and secular ideals and does not violate the Constitution.
