Making a Stand

A friend sent me this story about a couple in Indiana who put up this granite display of the Ten Commandments on a busy intersection. It's right in front of a CVS Pharmacy which connects to a busy plaza with many other stores in Kendallville, Indiana. It is bolstered on the side by a US flag and surrounded by attractive landscaping.

What effect do you think this type of display is having? Does this infuse a positive conversation into the community, or do you suppose it goes unnoticed? The couple own the property it sits on--and they are looking for property on other busy intersections in Mishawaka and other cities to purchase for additional displays of the Ten Commandments. Good investment? Or waste of money?
