Roy More in a church? I think the roof would fall in!

Moore got national media coverage several years ago because he ordered prayers in his courtroom and kept putting "Ten Commandments" monuments in his courthouse, violations of the prohibition of government established religion.

From the Wiki entry on him:

on December 7, 1999, Moore announced from his Etowah County courtroom that he would enter the race with the hope of returning "God to our public life and restore the moral foundation of our law". His campaign, centered on religious issues, arguing that Christianity's declining influence "corresponded directly with school violence, homosexuality, and crime"
