To the editor:
According to his book, "Why the Ten Commandments Matter," Time Warner Book Group, New York, N.Y. 10020, 1960, the late Dr. D. James Kennedy states on page 7, " Recently the U.S. Supreme Court let stand a ruling forcing a small town in Indiana to remove a monument featuring the Ten Commandments in front of its city hall."
It goes on to say, " ... I am so pleased with the courage and conviction of Alabama Chief Justice Roy S. Moore, who placed a granite monument bearing the Ten Commandments in the rotunda of the state supreme court building. Both his courage and conviction were put to the test in 2003 when a federal judge ordered him to remove the monument. Moore refused to do so, citing the obligation imposed on him by his oath of office, and he paid the price. He was removed from office by the state judicial body, an action he has appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court."
I have heard of no removal of the order of the particular federal judge or the U.S. Supreme Court but the title of Chapter Nine of Dr. Kennedy's book is " If You Can't Do the Time, Don't Do the Crime," which could tell us whether or not to obey that judge at the present time.
