Recently Roy Moore reclaimed his position as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, a post he was forcibly removed from because he refused to take down a monument of the Ten Commandments in defiance of a federal order. Not going to get into the dispute over the monument but look at some of the comments that Judge Roy Moore has made that back up this point of ethics and God.

In 2003 Judge Roy Moore said, "To deny God would be to recognize man as sovereign and would be a violation of the first commandment as well as the First Amendment. Judge Thompson's order, running counter to the Supreme Judge of the World, is null and void."

He also said in 2003, "The law of God will remain forever. This case is ... about the acknowledgement of God. Indeed, we must acknowledge God because our constitution says our justice system is established by God. For him to say that I can't say who God is, is to disestablish the justice system of this state."

Again in 2003, "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."

Again in 2003, "Acknowledging God is the source, a moral source of law."

Upon his removal from office in 2003, "God is sovereign and shall remain so despite what the Supreme Court and the federal courts of this land say. I have obeyed the rule of law by not following the unlawful dictates of man."

Upon being sworn back into office a few years ago he said, "We've got to remember that most of what we do in court comes from some Scripture or is backed by Scripture."
