WASHINGTON -

A stone monument of the Ten Commandments that was toppled by vandals in Washington is upright again.

The 3-foot-by-3-foot monument that weighs 850 pounds sits out front of the headquarters of Faith and Action, a Christian outreach ministry, which is located behind the U.S. Supreme Court. The group said Thursday that the tablets, which were pushed face-down by vandals in September, were brought upright Wednesday by a crew of stone masons.

The group installed the tablets in a garden outside its offices in 2006, and the group's president said the tablets were angled so that justices arriving at the high court would see them. Courts nationwide, including the Supreme Court, have wrestled with public displays of the Ten Commandments.

The group plans a re-dedication ceremony on Oct. 29.
