Alabama chief justice Roy Moore still won't remove that huge granite Ten Commandments thing from the state judicial building, even under court order and threats of fines.

You should know that Alabama has a $675 million budget deficit, a shortfall that presumably threatens police protection and clean drinking water and state child protective services and so on. But, as Fox News pointed out last week, Alabama has spent $125 million defending Moore's Ten Commandments monument, and "is spending $25,000 a day of taxpayers' money on the case," according to Moore himself.

You think that's what Jesus would do?
