Judge Roy Moore & Foundation to Defend Alabama Town Signs

MONTGOMERY, AL — The Foundation for Moral Law, a national religious-liberties organization, has agreed to defend the Town of Sylvania, Alabama, which recently received legal threats from the atheist group Freedom From Religion Foundation for town welcome signs that include the phrase “One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism.”
Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, founder and President of the Foundation, stated:
“The Freedom From Religion Foundation has an agenda to remove any acknowledgement of God or religion from the public square and are trying to bully towns like Sylvania with threatening letters that grossly misrepresent the Constitution. Sylvania refuses to be bullied by the anti-religious sentiment of the FFRF. The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution stands for freedom of religion, not freedom from religion, and we look forward to representing Sylvania in this important matter.”
Despite the fact that the Town has never received any objection to the phrase on the welcome signs, the Wisconsin-based atheists at Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a threatening letter, dated April 17, 2012 (http://ffrf NULL.org/uploads/legal/SylvaniaAL NULL.pdf), to the former mayor of Sylvania claiming the signs were “reprehensible,” “egregious,” and a “blatant violation of the Constitution.” FFRF has demanded the phrases be immediately censored from all of Sylvania’s welcome signs.
Although the then-mayor removed the phrase from the signs, the Town voted last week to restore the phrase back to the signs. The Foundation for Moral Law has agreed to provide free legal defense to the people of Sylvania against any action taken against their welcome signs.
The Foundation for Moral Law, a national non-profit legal organization, is located in Montgomery, Alabama, and is dedicated to restoring the knowledge of God in law and government through litigation and education relating to moral issues and religious liberty cases.
