Ten Commandments Controversy Continues

Sep. 4 - A judge is expected to rule Thursday on a motion to dismiss a lawsuit involving the Ten Commandments monument.

Three Alabamians filed the suit to get the monument put back in the rotunda of the state building. They claim their Constitutional rights were violated when the monument was moved to a storage last week.

Attorney General Bill Pryor made a motion to dismiss the case. Judge Myron Thompson will rule on that motion today. Meanwhile, Chief Justice Roy Moore is still planning to go before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Wednesday on NBC's Today Show, Moore said his fight for the Ten Commandments is not about personal gain. "This is not about politics, it's not about religion and it's not about me. It's about whether or not this country can acknowledge God."

Moore will soon go before the court of the judiciary for a trial-like hearing to face charges filed with the Judicial Inquiry Commission.
