Chief Justice Roy Moore is fighting a federal court ruling ordering him to remove the commandments from the rotunda of the Alabama Supreme court. An appellate court said if it allowed the display.. every government building could be adorned with a cross, menora or statue of Buddha depending on who was in charge.
Elizabeth Sanchez/reporting: Across the country Federal Courts have ruled on the separation of church and state and have not always agreed. Here in Texas the ten commandments are on display on the capitol grounds.

And in Phoenix, a ten commandment monument also sits on state property while in Philadelphia a similar plague remains in a courthouse. And there are law suits to get rid of them all.
Philip Jauregui, Moores attorney You have one first amendment in this nation yet it is being interpreted in different way from court to court to court.
Justice Moore is gonna continue to fight. He says its more than just about the ten commandments.
Justice Moore Alabama will never give up its right to acknowledge God, the acknowledgment is the basis of our justice system. A federal district judge has threatened to fine Alabama if its not removed by next week. Its a matter that will most likely end up in the hands of the U S Supreme court.
