In Flathead County Montana.

This will not go well for the truck driver.

Probably something about governments pushing a religion on you.

maybe a large, "God is great" inscription in Arabic script would help.

Might very well have something to do with this:

The Associated Press reported in 2011 that the Kalispell City Council was asked to take possession of the statue and six others that included historical texts from the Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence at the courthouse. Together, the monuments formed a “cornerstone of law” display.

The council declined, fearing a lawsuit on First Amendment separation of church and state grounds.

The AP reported that the Fraternal Order of the Eagles had given the Ten Commandments statue to Flathead County in 1950. At that time was placed in front of the courthouse.

The group took possession again prior to 2011 when the monuments became the target of a legal challenge.

Workers later moved the monument to the courthouse’s southwest corner during a courthouse renovation.

Not a truck driver but someone with a pickup. Driving a pickup does not make you a truck driver.

As a humorous aside I recall a while ago the then governor of Montana declaring the pickup truck the state animal.

He looks so nonplussed in his mugshot.

May I present Anthony Craig Weimer, hero to radical neo-iconoclasts.
