The Roy Moore-10 Commandments monument-God Bless America ROADSHOW

(CBS/AP) A veterans group, with the blessing of ousted Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, plans to move his Ten Commandments monument out of storage at the state judicial building this evening to take it on a national "God Bless America" tour.

The granite monument has been out of public view for nearly a year after Moore lost a court fight over its display. It will be hauled to rallies for three months by American Veterans Standing for God and Country, with the first rally to be held July 31st in Dayton, Tennessee.

The president of the veterans group says they're mounting the tour because the Ten Commandments are the foundation of American law. Moore, who's preparing to file an appeal of his ouster with the U.S. Supreme Court, says Americans "need to be reminded of our moral foundation" during the national debate over gay marriage.

1. I wonder if he would consider running for Pres...
That would create a real dilema, do you love god or do you love your country... :smoke:

7. I would personally campaign on his behalf
Just to create confusion in the ranks.

Delightfully subversive.

3. What's the point of a tour?
People can just open up the Bible and read both versions of the commandments. Are people supposed to worship at the monument or something?

4. Maybe they can screen "America's Heart And Soul" as a bonus attraction
It might even equal the turnout of hundreds - yes, literally hundreds - of people who saw it in the theaters.

5. This is Saturday Night Live material. The right has gone insane.
Don't you love how 'one's' moral foundation should be everyones moral foundation. Fuck off Moore. Shove the 'tour' and the 10 commandments up your judicial ass.
