Defy Tyrannical Judicial Decrees -- Keep the Ten Commandments!

Boulder, CO -- The America First Party applauds Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore's courageous actions in defense of our nation's Constitution, the sovereign rights of the state of Alabama, and our Judeo-Christian heritage. We condemn in the strongest possible terms the outrageous ruling of Federal District Court Judge Myron Thompson. We also condemn the cowardly actions of the US Supreme Court and Alabama Attorney General Bill Pryor. We call upon all patriots to stand firm in opposing Judge Thompson's ordered removal of the Ten Commandments from the rotunda of the Alabama Supreme Court.

John Pittman Hey, the party's National Secretary, declared: "Justice Moore is completely within his rights as a judge and as a citizen, to celebrate the very foundation of Western moral standards and Alabama state law by erecting this great monument to the Ten Commandments. Judge Thompson's order is not only an attack against Justice Moore's prerogatives as the highest judicial officer of the state -- it is an assault against our Constitution, religious freedom, and the Alabama voters who elected Justice Moore."

Romelle Winters, the party's Press Secretary, commented: "The Federal Judiciary has shown its true colors with this all-out attack against our nation's Judeo-Christian heritage and the Constitution. From the District Court all the way up to the Supreme Court, not a single judge will stand up for the First Amendment. At every level, we continue to witness a sustained and unrelenting attack by our Courts against the rule of law and the Constitution they have each given an oath to support. If we are to restore liberty and the Constitution, it appears we are going to have to get some new judges."

Dan Charles, the party's National Chairman Emeritus, added: "The First Amendment was written to protect the people and the states from Federal intrusion into religion -- that's why it reads, 'Congress shall make no law..' Nowhere in the Constitution is there any prohibition against what Justice Roy Moore has done. In fact, the First and the Tenth Amendments expressly protect his display of the Ten Commandments. We call upon all those who have pledged to uphold the Constitution to defy these tyrannical judicial orders which attempt to overrule the Constitution and the rights of Justice Moore."

The cowardly betrayal of the Constitution by Alabama Attorney General Bill Pryor is particularly disturbing. Mr. Pryor, who has been nominated to the federal bench by George Bush, has announced he will help enforce the illegal orders of the Federal Court. His actions no doubt are meant to pander to the liberal Democrats who are blocking his appointment in the Senate confirmation proceedings.

Trey Golmon, Ballot Access Committee Chairman, commented: "Mr. Pryor is willing to sell out the Constitution and the rights of his state and its citizens in exchange for a lifetime appointment to the Federal Bench. That's not the kind of judge we need. Leave it to the Republicans to nominate men of such low moral caliber, lacking in reverence for our Constitution and our Judeo-Christian heritage. We hope Mr. Pryor never makes it to the federal bench, and we demand that President Bush nominate men and women with integrity and honor who will take seriously their solemn oath to defend the Constitution."
