A man on the top of the list of news-makers for 2004 for his stand on the 10 commandments came to Broken Arrow Monday night, speaking to a packed house.

Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore made headlines when he was forced off the bench because he refused to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments from that state's judicial building. It was that controversy that brought him to the First Baptist Church in Broken Arrow.

Moore says what bothers him most is the idea that he would be unfair as a judge to a non-Christian. "You're not judged on your beliefs. I can't access your beliefs. You're judged according to what you've done, whether you're a Jew, a Christian or an atheist, it doesn't matter to a court."

Moore says he makes about 2 or 3 speeches every week around the country. He'll be in New Mexico Tuesday.

His book titled, "So Help Me God" is due out in March.
