Chief Justice Roy Moore was forced from the bench after he refused to follow a court order and remove his Ten Commandments monument from the state judicial building in Montgomery.
A decade later, Moore is reflecting on the ordeal that caused a national debate about the separation between church and state.
Once again Alabama's chief justice, Moore continues to maintain that putting the Ten Commandments monument on public display was the right thing to do.
Moore won re-election to the state's highest court bench in November 2012 following failed bids for governor and president.
"You know, when I look back, I was proud to uphold the law, the Constitution of the United States and the First Amendment," Moore said, "which states basically we must acknowledge God to have a moral basis for our society and to retain that freedom of conscience which every person in this state and in this country recognizes is very important."
The final chapter ended with a denied appeal to the United States Supreme Court.
