Alabama’s golden calf

Alabama’s golden calf

From D.J. Mitchell

Down in Montgomery, they’ve got their own problems.  Chief Justice Roy Moore was suspended for refusing to remove a 5,300-pound monument to the Ten Commandments from the courtyard of a government building.  Moore’s reasoning: to do so would be to “remove God.”

It’s unfortunate that such ignorance rises to the highest levels of (in this case) state government.  After all, one of the things the Ten Commandments tells us is that no monument is God– not even one to the Ten Commandments.  By taking such a position, Judge Moore has desecrated the very commandments he claims to revere.

Judge Moore has been suspended pending resolution of an ethics complaint against him, with the Christian Coalition of Alabama of course bemoaning how horrible it all is.
