"The battle over the 10 Commandments monument monument I brought into Alabama
s Supreme Court is not about a monument and not about politics. The battle is
not even abouty religion, a term defined by our founders as the duty we owe to
our creator and the manner for discharging it. Federal Judge Myron Thompson, who
ordered the monument s removal, and I are in perfect agreement on the fact that
the issue in this case is: Can the state acknowledge God? "
- Chief Justice Roy Moore
