Roy Moore earned an appointment to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. During the Vietnam War he served as a Military Police Company Commander. Soldiers under his command called him "Captain America". The name of "Captain America" was not necessarily meant as a compliment, but as a description of Captain Roy Moore who closely followed military regulations and who promoted discipline in the ranks.
Concerning the Ten Commandments in the Alabama Supreme Court: "I knew that this monument would be difficult for them to understand," he wrote. "And I wondered if I could stand the pressure of being sued and how my fellow justices would react to such a situation."
As Circuit Judge in Etowah County, one of his first acts was to make a small wooden plaque of the Ten Commandments that was displayed in his courtroom. Concerning the Ten Commandments in the Etowah County Courtroom, "I knew there would be political and spiritual consequences," "On the other hand, I reasoned what a hypocrite I would be if I failed to acknowledge the God who was responsible for my new job."
In the book, Judge Moore quotes extensively from historical documents and figures, such as Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, which he uses to prove his position.
During Roy Moore's early life, his father moved the family around following after construction work. Durng early childhood, the family spent several years in Texas. In the first and second grades, Roy Moore changed schools 6 times.
The family moved back to rural Alabama and did some farming. "We plowed with mules. Cut wood with a crosscut saw." When Roy Moore was in high school, the family did not have an indoor toilet. To earn pay for food in high school, Roy Moore spent time cleaning tables. His classmates admired him and elected him president of the student body.
In the ninth grade, Roy Moore saw a movie about the United States Military Academy. "It just aroused something in me." He set a goal for an appointment to West Point. His parents encouraged him, he worked diligently on his studies, and prayed for a miracle. The miracle happened and the appointment to West Point became reality. "I remember very distinctly my daddy hocking his toolbox to get the $300 to get me physically to the academy," Moore said.
Roy Moore's father was a very hard working man, who would give the shirt off his back to help others. He was a firm believer in Jesus Christ, and was a role model to his family of his faith in Christianity.
Judge Moore believes the greatest problems in America, are caused by judicial activism caused by the courts. The problem is the courts, and that's why this Constitution Restoration Act is the solution. To remedy the problem, Judge Moore and his legal team put together the "Constitution Restoration
Act. A bill which would restrict the courts through the authorization of Article III of the
Constitution. Congress is clearly given the power to restrict the jurisdiction of the federal courts. Using the authority of Article III, this bill would restrict the power of federal courts to weigh in religious-expression cases like his. Judge Moore testified before Congress in September, 2004, and explained the Constitutional background of the act.
