New Ten Commandments Display at Capitol

Mongtomery, AL – A Ten Commandments display put together by Governor Bob Riley opened in an exhibit room at the Capitol. The plaque was praised by some church leaders who support displays of the commandments in government buildings.

Riley had the display built after supporters of a Ten Commandments monument that was removed from the state judicial building presented him with a plaque bearing the commandments last week.

Riley's display at the Capitol included the Ten Commandments among other historical documents. Chief Justice Roy Moore, who was suspended for refusing to comply with a federal court order to remove his commandments monument, says a display like Riley's was unacceptable.
