The United States Supreme Court has rejected Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore's appeals in the Ten Commandments case.

Thus, the ruling that the monument be removed from the Alabama State Judicial Building and that Chief Justice Moore be suspended stand. Judge Myron Thomposon's ruling that it is unconstitutional for a state to even acknowledge God now stands unopposed.

Associated Press, of course, remains eminently neutral on the matter. The first paragraph from their story (written by an Anne Gearan) reads:
The Supreme Court refused Monday to enter the long-running fight over an enormous monument depicting the Ten Commandments and the renegade judge who wants to put it back on display in an Alabama courthouse.
The "enormous" monument installed by the "renegade judge" stands about waist high and about 2 1/2 feet square.
