MONTGOMERY, AL — Judge Roy Moore and the Foundation for Moral Law (http://www NULL.morallaw NULL.org/) sent a letter of support today (http://morallaw NULL.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/FML-letter-to-Autauga-Super-Agee-10 NULL.31 NULL.12 NULL.pdf) to Autauga County School Superintendent Spence Agee encouraging him to continue to allow Marbury High School cheerleaders to display signs at football games that include Bible verses on them. A radical atheist group from Wisconsin, the so-called Freedom From Religion Foundation, sent a recent letter complaining about the signs (http://prattville NULL.wsfa NULL.com/news/news/190920-ffrf-marbury-high-school-stop-displaying-illegal-religious-banners).
Judge Roy Moore commented:
“The Freedom From Religion Foundation is an atheist organization seeking to remove the knowledge of God from our land. To say that cheerleaders at Marbury High School cannot encourage their football team with expressions of faith is ridiculous. These bullish tactics may result in some Americans giving up their rights, but we at the Foundation for Moral Law are prepared to defend these students at all costs.”
In the letter, Judge Moore urged Autauga County to “to ignore the sound and fury of radical atheists and instead protect the religious liberty of Marbury cheerleaders, football players, and other students.” The Constitution should not be used to censor students expressing their faith. After all, said Judge Moore, “The First Amendment protects freedom of religion, not freedom from religion.”
Judge Moore offered the legal services of the Foundation and assured Autauga County that “we at the Foundation are ready to go the distance in this battle for religious liberty.”
The Foundation for Moral Law (http://www NULL.morallaw NULL.org/), a national religious-liberties legal organization located in Montgomery, Alabama, is dedicated to restoring the knowledge of God in law and government through litigation and education relating to moral issues and religious liberty cases.
