MOORE APPEAL IN COURT'S HANDS
Commandments Case Will
Set Huge Precedent
Till heaven and earth pass away,
not one jot nor one tittle shall pass from the Law (Matthew 5:18)
Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore's appeal to prevent removal
of the Ten Commandments monument he erected in the Alabama Judicial
Building two years ago was heard Wednesday by a three-judge panel
of the 11th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals in Montgomery. The
panel will now deliberate and issue their ruling, which could
take days or months.
- Dr. Herb Titus, one of Moore's attorneys, argued that the
Ten Commandments are the basis for both the Declaration of Independence
and the U.S. Constitution. "God
is officially acknowledged as the source of law and liberty,"
- Judge Moore argued that it is permissible to acknowledge
God just as our founders often acknowledged God and the Bible.
Moore plainly intended the monument to commemorate the "moral
foundations of law" and the "sovereignty of God over
the affairs of men."
- One judge, openly hostile, said that if the Commandments
were allowed, courts across America could be decorated with taxpayer-funded
murals of the life of Christ and the Crucifixion or block-letter
signs asking, "What would Jesus do?"
- If the panel rules against Moore, another date will be issued
by which Moore must remove the monument. Whatever the ruling,
there will be an appeal to the full Court of Appeals and then
on to the U.S. Supreme Court, but there is no guarantee the Supreme
Court will take the case.
- Speaking to reporters after the hearing, Moore warned that
if he loses every public affirmation
or reference to God, given time, will be expunged from American
Moore's case underscores our desperate need for God-fearing
judges in the State and Federal courts. Rev.
Rob Schenk, Director of the Ten Commandments Project, said, "Moore
is right! This is truly a watershed case. It will determine the
future trajectory all such cases."
