Statement by Chief Justice Moore

Let me begin by stating that:
I am very disappointed with my colleagues on the Court who have decided to act in response to Judge Myron Thompson’s Order, to exercise authority under Section 12-5-20 Alabama Code to remove the monument of the Ten Commandments from the rotunda of the Alabama Judicial Building.
But the fight to defend our Constitutional right to acknowledge God must and will continue!
Very soon we will file a petition for writ of certiorari before the United States Supreme Court to resolve clearly our inalienable right to recognize God under the First Amendment.
The people of this State elected me as Chief Justice to uphold our Constitution which established our justice system “invoking the favor and guidance of Almighty God”.
To do my duty I must acknowledge God. That is what this case is about.
“Can the state acknowledge God” a direct quote from Judge Thompson.
Judge Thompson’s Order states that the acknowledgment of God crosses the line between the permissible and the impermissible, and that to acknowledge God is to violate the Constitution.
Not only does Judge Thompson put himself above the law but also above God as well.
I have been ordered to do something I cannot do – violate my oath. I hear others talk of the “rule of law”
If the “rule of law” means to do everything a judge tells you to do, we would still have slavery and the Declaration of Independence would never have been written.
The “rule of law” causes those who strongly oppose Roe v. Wade because it is the taking of human life and the slaughter of millions of innocent babies,
to condemn innocent babies to death because they do not understand our organic law the Declaration of Independence which states that “we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
The “rule of law” in 1858 declared that slaves were property simply because a judge said so.
Dr. Martin Luther King is proof enough that great men do follow the rule of law and not the rules of man.
I say enough is enough and we must “dare defend our rights” as our State motto declares.
No judge or man can dictate what we believe or in Whom we believe.
The 9th and 10th Amendments are not a part of the Constitution simply to make the Bill of Rights a round number.
The 9th Amendment secured our right as a people.
The 10th guaranteed our right as a sovereign state.
I was dismayed and angry to learn that while I was away someone had placed a shroud around the Ten Commandments.
Before the Federal District Court here in Montgomery sets a bust of the Greek Goddess Themis. You won’t find federal authorities scurrying around to conceal that bust behind a screen.
And neither should we hide the truth any longer.
I will not violate my oath, I cannot forsake my conscience, I will not neglect my duty and
I will never deny the God upon Whom our laws and Country depend.
