Now watch, after hearing someone rant about the *rural minority* pushing around the rest of the country, some God hating atheist will file a lawsuit to demand his own way.

Pushing forward, draining the swamp, and deporting those who don’t like it.
Time to roll.

Say what you will about Roy Moore, but recall that it was his insistence that he be able to display the 10 Commandments in his court as Chief Justice back in the 80's and 90's that got him thrown out before he ran for the same office later and got re-elected.

Multiple vettings and re-elections, and not one hint of sexual impropriety.

Why ~600,000 (R) voters did not show up to vote to get him into the US Senate, when the Alabama populace voted like this a year later now with the full force of Alabama's Constitution is a mystery to me.

Moore was Kavanaugh-ed before there was a Kavanaugh, but Moore was a dress rehearsal for the kind of shenanigans would be brought against a perfectly righteous, upstanding, accomplished and innocent individual.

Moore's Higher mission won in the end although he proved to be a casualty in battle, accused falsely and ridiculed in the end by those who should have been his friends.

FReegards!

There’s no mystery. Mitch McConnell’s GOPe scuttled him.

(1) "Every person shall be at liberty to worship God according to the dictates of his or her own conscience.""

If I’m reading this correctly, the above provision from the referenced amendment gives anti-Christian factions a loophole to define Christianity any way they want to imo.

Corrections, insights welcome.

That is only part of it.

Remember the voting booth irregularities, and Republican Secretary of State's refusal to secure the votes for recounts when evidence of involuntary vote switching was very apparent, and to investigate the crime. If they use the kinds of voting machines that could be hacked externally it is little wonder they have the liberal (D) in there now.

Maybe Jeff Sessions can redeem himself and run for his old job again, for what ever worthless service he was to Trump these past 2 years.

FReegards!

We are being overrun by transplants in northern Alabama due to jobs being available. Certain counties up here are getting close to even in once very conservative districts.

They also don’t know how to drive. I want them to go home.

The ten commandments are the basis of Western civilization. Everyone needs to study them.

"in a manner that complies with constitutional requirements,"

So what does that even mean?

We plan to relocate to NE AL as retirees who are conservative to the bone!

We have the same problem in Florida.
Not only is it the blue-hairs and the Jersey/NY drivers, we have the millenials (left lane campers)to deal with!

Thanks for the post.
But which version; Jewish, Catholic, Protestant?

For thoughtful examination, see this:
https://fisheaters.com/10commandments.html

“... So we have 16 verses and Ten Commandments (this we know because of Exodus 34:28 and Deuteronomy 4:13 which speak of the “Ten Words” of God). How to group these verses and Commands? Here’s how different groups have handled this:...”
