The advertisement in The Paper read ‘Memorial Park South Announces The Installation Of The World’s Largest Statue Of Moses And The Ten Commandments – Visit Memorial Park South To View This Important Work Of Art’. Since it was located in Oakwood-Flowery Branch off Falcon Parkway near 12Stone, we decided to check it out after church this past Sunday.
And after wandering around the cemetery a few minutes, we found the statue on the back side of their acreage overlooking what appears to be an under construction mausoleum …
Just to give you a little size perspective my grandson struck a pose next to the statue … and if you’re wondering … yes, the Bible says the Ten Commandments were written on tablets on two tablets …
I will admit it is a beautiful statue and there are many beautiful statues of other saints of the Bible throughout the cemetary.
So you may be wondering what is ‘the irony behind the Moses statue’?
In a day where the courts are constantly and consistently ruling that the Ten Commandments cannot be displayed on the public square and if they are, the courts are ordering them to be removed; there is great irony in the fact that the largest statue of Moses and the Ten Commandments in the world is found and has been voluntarily placed on the back side of a cemetery in a little north Georgia town to promote the sale of six burial plots?
The other irony … and you may not be able to see it too clearly in the photo … the top of the Ten Commandments tablet is absolutely covered with bird poop … no need to explain the irony in that.
