The editorial “Vance for Justice” gives me cause to write. My only difference with Judge Vance is that he is a Democrat. Enough said.
However, you writers for the newspaper have a one-track mind about Roy Moore. I object to the bad-mouthing your editorials do to Roy Moore. Moore did not violate any law by putting that monument in the Alabama Supreme Court Building. Did you know there are three displays of the Ten Commandments, two on the Supreme Court outside, and one in the building?
The monuments Moore put in the building had about 12 other famous statements made during our nation’s founding by George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Samuel Adams, along with statements from our Declaration of Independence.
You stated that Moore’s campaigning suggests he plans to again allow his fundamental religion beliefs to trump the law. Your editorial states there is much wrong with him substituting his personal beliefs for the law!
Now please tell me how did Moore break the law? Separation of church and state is simply a propaganda much publicized by the media and other people who did not investigate the statement for truth when Judge Myron Thompson ruled that Moore had violated the Constitution by placing the Ten Commandments in the Alabama Supreme Court Building. Does Thompson not realize that the Ten Commandments are the foundation of civilized man? Cicero the Roman statesman said “Man cannot live without the law of God.”
In fact, Cicero also said man’s law is always evil.
