What Happened to Roy Moore's Ten Commandments Monument?

A reader writes in to inquire, in response to yesterday's item on Judge Roy Moore's presidential bid and my Atlantic profile* of "Roy's Rock" (the nickname for his Ten Commandments monument), "What ever happened to the famous monument?" It's a great question. Does anybody know the answer? Shoot me an email.

UPDATE: The monument resides in the CrossPoint Community Church in Gadsden, Alabama (Moore's hometown). Picture and eye-popping headline here. Special thanks to commenter BrianSierk for tracking down the answer.

*Apologies for the funky rendering. We used a different publish system back then that doesn't seem to recognize section breaks in the article.
