The Foundation for Moral Law in Montgomery, Ala., hosted the 2010 Alabama Secession Day Commemoration. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the event featured speakers tied to the League of the South, a neo-Confederate hate group that considers slavery “God-ordained” and advocates for “the cultural dominance of the Anglo-Celtic people and their institutions.” The Foundation for Moral Law’s president is defrocked Alabama Chief Supreme Court Justice Judge Roy Moore, who is more commonly known as the “Ten Commandments judge.” In the dead of night on July 31, 2001, Moore placed a 2½-ton stone monument with the Decalogue carved on it in the rotunda of the Alabama Supreme Court building, where he then presided. Moore was thrown out of office in 2003 by Alabama’s Court of the Judiciary after refusing to remove the monument, as he was ordered to do as the result of a federal lawsuit brought by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Moore is one of the attorneys representing 35 Kentucky State Senators in the Kentucky Homeland Security lawsuit. For further information, you may link to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Southern Party of Georgia, a blog with video from the event, and dailypaul.com. The event was held at Moore’s Foundation for Moral Law. The event claims that it was not sponsored by Moore’s foundation, but the foundation received all proceeds from the event.
