Statement by The Foundation for Moral Law and former Chief Justice Roy Moore

Today the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its first decisions regarding the public display of the Ten Commandments in 25 years. Instead of seizing this monumental opportunity to clarify its murky Establishment Clause jurisprudence by returning to the bedrock of the actual words of the Constitution, the Court has further confused the issues through split decisions and a myriad of judicial opinions.

 It took the Court ten different opinions to determine whether or not the Ten Commandments are constitutional.

“The issue is and remains whether or not we can acknowledge God under the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States Constitution,” former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore said. “Clearly, history, logic, and law dictate that we can. This court is simply ignoring the words of the First Amendment and ruling by their own feelings. When you deny God, as this Court is doing, you slowly lose your rights to life, liberty, and property.”

According to attorneys for the Foundation for Moral Law, had the Supreme Court bothered to examine the words of the Establishment Clause, these cases would have been easy because it is obvious that these displays of the Ten Commandments are not “law[s] respecting an establishment of religion.”

Thus, these displays are perfectly permissible under the text of the Constitution, just as Chief Justice Moore’s monument was, despite the Court’s claims to the contrary.

 The end result of these decisions is that it is now easier for a Ten Commandments display on public property to be struck down than it is for one to be permitted. These cases demonstrate that the time is now for people to stand up for their inalienable right to acknowledge God, and the Foundation for Moral Law remains steadfast in its purpose to support that right.
