Former Alabama Supreme Court Judge Speaks in Springfield

As Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, Judge Roy Moore placed a monument of the 10 commandments in the court building.

His refusal to remove the monument cost him his position.

On Wednesday, Moore visited Springfield and spoke about his strong beliefs in the relationship between religion and government.

KSMU's Matt Petcoff has the story...

Judge Roy Moore no longer interprets the law within governmental settings.

But, that doesn't mean the former Chief Justice for the state of Alabama goes without sharing his opinion.

On Wednesday, as a guest of Springfield attorney Dee Wampler, Moore spoke to a crowd of a couple hundred at the Highland Springs Country Club.

Moore's message revolved around his belief that the government, and the nation as a whole, is losing its connection with religion and god.

Moore says more and more of the country is forgetting the nation was formed under god.

Critics of Moore say he's too quick to mix religion and government.

Since his removal from the Alabama Supreme Court, Moore has traveled the country sharing his beliefs.

He has also recently released his third book, titled "So Help Me God".
