    I don't feel sorry at all for those who voted for this. They voted to violate the establishment clause of the constitution and they voted to usurp government power to promote their religious beliefs while at the same time use the government to pronounce that beliefs that do not include the 10 commandments are wrong.

    The people who voted for this are morally disgusting.

    I only feel badly for those who voted against this.
    I doubt that more than 2% of the people that voted for this understand the issue. That's what is sad.

    Even if they are clueless on the constitution, I'd consider it a moral failing not to understand that it's wrong to use the government to attempt to elevate their religious beliefs above other beliefs. But having elected Roy Moore twice, I guess they have no problem behaving immorally.

    Sometimes I think of christianity as a cult for sinners, and Alabama is certainly well represented. Doing wrong in the name of god never stopped a good christian.

    I don't see what's so good about that.

    Thought this story was interesting, only because it involved Alabama.

    Some People Do Not Wish to be Christians.

    Local media have reported that Chau may have wanted to meet the tribe to preach Christianity to them.
