Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, who gained political prominence in a series of legal battles over the display of the Ten Commandments, announced this week he will be a Republican candidate for governor in Alabama's state elections next year.
Moore outlined a five-point platform under his campaign theme - ”Return Alabama“ - that includes issues such as term limits, lower taxes, educational choice and talk about values and morality.
Moore's announcement has generated much conversation in the last week.
”I think he would make a good governor,“ Levon Agee Jr. said. ”He's a nice person so as far as I know. What we need is a new president.“
Wayne Howard said, ”I have to admire him for his standing up for what he believes. I think there are not enough of us taking a stand. If we did, we would still be saying the Pledge of Allegiance or the Lord's Prayer. I don't know enough about his platform to make an informed decision. I think his character would be a leader for the state.“
Ronny Martin said, ”I don't think that his religious stance should be his platform.“
Debra Brown said, ”I think it's good that he is running. He would make a great governor because of his stance on the Ten Commandments.“
