IN THE NEWS: DAYTON, Tenn. — The Ten Commandments monument banished from Alabama's state judicial building began a national tour on the back of a flatbed truck on Saturday — starting outside the courthouse where the teaching of evolution was put on trial almost 80 years ago, Fox news reported. This caused Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore to be removed from office when he refused to remove the monument. The ACLU won the battle and the monument was removed. I tell you there is a war against Christians in America.
