Finally, an explanation

Someone beat Roy Moore to the punch.

Did you ever wonder why many of the Ten Commandments monuments at the center of the ongoing debate about the constitutionally permissible relationship between religion and government were installed in the first place? To the likely dismay of the former Alabama chief justice, who never met a piece of granite that couldn't help him make a buck or two, it appears the monuments were little more than cogs in a promotional machine for Cecil B. DeMille's movie The Ten Commandments.

How dare that guy exploit religion for personal gain a half century before Moore could do the same thing. Just goes to show that you can never trust those long-haired Hollywood types.
