Roy's Rock

Couldn't just resist it :-(!

You might have heard abt the controversy involving a Ten Commandments Monument installed by Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore in the Court complex. A fed court has ordered him to remove it - deciding that it is a violation of constitutional separation of Church and State. Well, today, Justice Moore has declared that he would continue defying that order.... but the funny part is that he is claiming a first amendment right to acknowledge God. Well, even a nincompoop at law knows that the Bill of Rights protects citizens and not the state, which Justice Moore represents. Had he installed this monument in his private property, no one would have questioned. But he has installed it in the court premesis. If he were not the CJ, and just a private citizen, this would amount to trespass. Either way, he is in the wrong.
