It's bigger than just the 10 Commandments

If you think Alabama Cheif Justice Roy Moore's stance in favor of the 10 Commandements monument just a lot of noise about nothing, think again.

Statement: Chief Justice Roy Moore - Rotunda State -Judicial Building - Montgomery, Alabama -August 14, 2003

First, this is not about the Ten Commandments!

Quoting from the Court’s Order dated November 18, 2002:

“But in announcing this holding today, the Court believes it is important to clarify at the outset that the Court
does not hold that it is improper in all instances to display the Ten Commandments in government buildings,
nor does the Court hold that the Ten Commandments are not important, if not one of the most important,
sources of American law.”

Judge Thompson specifically declared the issue to be “... can the State acknowledge God?”. He then found
my actions to be wrongful because I acknowledged the God of the Holy Scriptures as the source of our law.

The Court said simply that to recognize God is unconstitutional. Herein lies the problem!

Stay tuned!!
