An Update

To the previous post. The Decatur Daily also has a story on Republican Supreme Court candidate Jean Brown. Mini-Moore beat her in the last election by calling her all sorts or nasty names for upholding Roy's ouster from the court. Her take on the last election:

"Because I stood up for the rule of law there were people who said I could not have been a Christian," Brown said. "I searched the Bible, and I could not find anything that said I should defy the law." Instead of finding a biblical directive to violate the law, Brown said, she found the opposite. "Jesus submitted to civil authority and it led to his crucifixion," she said. "I never saw him defy the law."
