Well at least the Federal Government is secular (and Alabama's not a sovereign nation)-  

It's worth pointing out that the Federal Judiciary (of our fair United States) is still clearly secular. Today Roy Moore, the former Chief Justice of Alabama who had refused to allow a federal court order demanding a removal of a granite monument to the 10 commandments from the court house, was removed from office by the Alambama Court of the Judiciary for ethical lapses (although Moore would probably call it just a novel reading of the Constitution). While the court struck a blow for the objectivity of the judiciary in the face of, possibly conflicting religous obligations (imagine a man coming before Moore who'd desecrated a cross) Moore is apparently more personally popular than ever. Perhaps he'll run for Senate?
