When asked about the display of the 10 Commandments when I was Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Alabama, I often begin by explaining that it was not about the 10 Commandments, it was about the Acknowledgment of God. Federal Court Judge Myron Thompson recognized that when he said, "The Issue is, Can the State Acknowledge God?" He answered that question in his final opinion when he stated, "While the Chief Justice is free to keep whatever religious belief he chooses the State may not acknowledge the sovereignty of the Judeo-Christian God and attribute to that God our Religious freedom."

Judge Thompson's order was simply an unlawful order which contradicted not only the Constitution of the United States but every State Constitution to include that of Alabama which acknowledges the existence of God.

How many more babies must die, how many institutions like marriage will be destroyed, will our right to own guns be taken from us before we realize that Judges are not above the law that they are sworn to uphold. Maybe that's what Ronald Reagan meant in 1984 when he said, "If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, we will be a Nation Gone Under."
