Alabama's "Ten Commandments judge" is pleased to return to the state Supreme Court.

Moore, Roy (AL Supreme Court)Roy Moore is known nationally as the Alabama Supreme Court chief justice who was kicked off the court for refusing a federal court order to move a Ten Commandments monument from the courthouse. Moore ran for the office again and won in the primary in spite of being outspent.

"We opposed about $3 million with about $600,000 and won by over 80,000 votes in the general," he details. "That was a pretty good win."

Judge Moore says a slate of Republicans was seated on the court by voters, and he believes they will strive together to uphold the U.S. and state constitutions. He adds that unless God is a part of the process, one cannot fully appreciate the Constitution's restraint of powers.

"You have no way of appreciating the nature of law in general -- i.e., that there are moral laws that the state is bound to and we have no basis for freedom of conscience if we do not acknowledge God," Moore notes.

"So all those things combined together are very important reasons why we must understand what God's relationship is with our courts, with our law and with our country."

He asserts that people formulate their own definitions of right and wrong when they do not understand where the concepts originated.
