Ten Commandments

Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore brought his fight to keep a granite monument of the Ten Commandments in the Alabama Judiciary Building to a Mobile church Sunday night.

Moore told the crowd that the separation of church and state that bars placing the monument in the state building "is a most confused doctrine."

Moore moved the 5,300-pound monument into the lobby of the judicial building two years ago.

Three attorneys sued him calling the monument offensive.

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals recently upheld the ruling which said the monument is an unconstitutional endorsement of religion by government.

Moore has said he will appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

His speech last night at Dauphin Way Baptist Church drew standing ovations at several points expressing it's not wrong to acknowledge God in our public institutions.
