Remember former Judge Roy Moore? He used to be Alabama’s Supreme Court chief justice, and he lost his job after refusing to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments from the state courthouse. This was after he was ordered to do that by a federal judge.
What a rebel.
On November 13, 2003, Alabama’s Court of the Judiciary unanimously removed Moore from his post as Chief Justice. In the years preceding his election to the Alabama Supreme Court, Moore had successfully resisted previous attempts to have a display of the Ten Commandments removed from the courtroom where he was employed.

“He not only stood up for his faith, he stood up against the tyranny of government,” he said.
Now then, what’s more logical than trying to become the head of the very tyrannical government you detest?
Here’s a commandment for you, Roy: Thou shalt not win.
Moore is less.
