The cowboys are here to show their support for the Ten Commandments Monument.

Earlier this year, the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled that the monument should be removed from the Capitol grounds.

After much debate, it was moved on Oct. 6.

On Friday, Gov. Fallin accepted the plaque and took part in a prayer with the cowboys. She also thanked them for standing up for Christian values in Oklahoma.
