Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore's absurd and self-interested defense of the imposition of (21 tons of) the ten commandments on the state's judicial system was an offense against the best values of this nation. But this poem, which he delivered recently before thousands, is an offense against the English language: While truth and law were founded on the God of all Creation, Man now, through law, denies the truth and calls it "separation." No longer does man see a need for God when he's in full control, For the only truth self-evident is in the latest poll. But with man as his own master we fail to count the cost, Our precious freedoms vanish and our liberty is lost. Children are told they can't pray and they teach them evolution, When will they learn the fear of God is the only true solution? Our schools have become the battleground while all across the land, Christians shrug their shoulders—afraid to take a stand. Fortunately, his fellow Justices demonstrated in a ruling today a stronger grip on the law: Writing that they are "bound by solemn oath to follow the law, whether they agree or disagree with it," the justices said in a signed statement that the State Supreme Court must abide by a federal court order mandating the removal of the 5,280-pound monument of the Ten Commandments that Justice Moore had installed one night in 2001. A federal judge had ordered Justice Moore to have the monument removed by midnight last night, saying the granite block, known as Roy's Rock, violated the separation of church and state. The associate justices, who acted before Justice Moore arrived for work this morning, ordered their building's manager to erect a partition to screen the monument from public view in the lobby, which was done. But when Justice Moore arrived, according to people who have been in contact with him today, he ordered the manager to take it down and threatened to jail the other justices.
