The Freedom from Religion Foundation action taking place in Connellsville against the Ten Commandments monument may have a simple solution outside the courts. The school district could hold a benefit auction for the few square feet of ground underneath and the monument. The winning bidder would be bound, even if it is just $1, to sign the deed and title over to the Fraternal Order of Eagles or to a similar group or church that will take the deed and preserve the monument.

It would no longer be on public land and the suit would become baseless. The school district is off the hook and has a few extra dollars in its pocket. The expense of moving the monument is avoided. Legal fees are avoided. The monument is preserved and no longer occupies government-owned property.
