Ten Commandments

A group called The Christian Defense Coalition has announced its plans to hinder any possible removal of the Ten Commandments monument from the State Judicial Building.

They held a news conference yesterday to announce an "around-the-clock protest" to begin with a prayer vigil on the steps of the court building at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Protesters say they will kneel around the building and in front of the monument to prevent its removal.

Chief Justice Roy Moore lost two last minute pleas for a stay yesterday.

The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Moore had failed to ask for a stay within the legal time frame after it ruled against him July 1.
