Roy Moore's Ten Commandments Monument Begins Nationwide Tour

Roy Moore's Ten Commandments Monument

The Ten Commandments monument which was removed last year from outside Alabama's state judicial building begins a nationwide tour.

The stop of the the 5,280-pound granite monument is the courthouse in Dayton, Tennessee, where John Scopes was convicted in 1924 of violating the anti-evolution Butler Act.

Jewell Sneed is one of the 75 people who come to see Roy Moore's Ten Commandments monument says;

"I think it was awful for them to make them move it from the courthouse. That is what our country is based on, is God and the Bible. Why we want to take God out I don't know. I think we are headed for big trouble when we take God out of schools and everything."
