CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Wyoming County officials aren't going to remove a monument to the Ten Commandments from the courthouse lawn.
The American Civil Liberties Union's state chapter has questioned the monument's constitutionality. The ACLU says government property is being used to advocate one religion over another.
Wyoming County prosecutor Michael Cochrane tells the Charleston Gazette that he doesn't believe the monument promotes Christianity over other religions.
Cochrane says it promotes laws that are based on some of the commandments. He also says the Ten Commandments are recognized as a universal code of conduct by many people.
Cochrane says the monument will stay on the courthouse lawn.
The monument was paid for and installed by a group of church and business leaders.
