Judge Roy Moore sued for 10 Commandments

The following is a poem written by Judge Roy Moore from Alabama.
Judge Moore was sued by the ACLU for displaying the Ten Commandments in his
courtroom foyer. He has been stripped of his judgeship and now they are
trying to strip his right to practice law in Alabama. The judge's poem
sums
it up quite well.

America the Beautiful,
or so you used to be.
Land of the Pilgrims' pride;
I'm glad they'll never see.

Babies piled in dumpsters,
Abortion on demand,
Oh, sweet land of liberty;
your house is on the sand.

Our children wander aimlessly
poisoned by cocaine
choosing to indulge their lusts,
when God has said abstain

From sea to shining sea,
our Nation turns away
From the teaching of God's love
and a need to always pray.

We've kept God in our temples,
how callous we have grown.
When earth is but His footstool,
and Heaven is His throne.

We've voted in a government
that's rotting at the core,
Ap pointing Godless Judges;
who throw reason out the door,

Too soft to place a killer
in a well deserved tomb,
But brave enough to kill a baby
before he leaves the womb.

You think that God's not angry,
that our land's a moral slum?
How much longer will He wait
before His judgment comes?

How are we to face our God,
from Whom we cannot hide?
What then is left for us to do,
but stem this evil tide?

If we who are His children,
will humbly turn and pray;
Seek His holy face
and mend our evil way:

Then God will hear from Heaven;
and forgive us of our sins,
He'll heal our sickly land
and those who live within. (2nd Chronicles 7:14)

But, America the Beautiful,
if you don't - then you will see,
A sad but Holy God
withdraw His hand from Thee.

~~Judge Roy Moore~~

Very nice poem. I think they are really going overboard in this issue. If someone didn't like seeing the 10 Commandments in the courtroom, all they had to do was ask him to remove them. A law suit and having his career stripped from him is WAY too harsh.

I always thought that in order for you to sue someone, that person would have to had wronged you in some way or is in debted to you. By displaying the 10 Commandments, who has he wronged?

I think it did go to court, and he was told to remove it, and he refused.
But I agree.. what the heck. If you don't like it, don't look at it.

It goes way beyond "feelings". This issue is all about politics! Specifically "political correctness" to be exact. Wars are won by winning individual battles and setting precedents such as this. I admire Judge Roy for his faith in his principles.

If I remember correctly, it was because he had a monument erected outside of the courthouse with the 10 commandments....a direct violation of seperation of church and state.

He was taken to court, ordered to remove the monument, and refused.

So not only did he violate separation of church and state laws, he also refused to follow a direct court order....he intentionally threw his career away. While I don't think he should be sued over the issue, he's clearly unfit to judge others.

He is one of the few fit to be a judge

Separation of Church and State has been taken out of context and reshaped so that it can be used by heathen to bring in socialism to our government. This man stood up for what this country is built on and is paying a price that will be well worth it come judgment day. We all have a chance to make our own bed and yes we will all have time to sleep in it. The attack on Christians is out of hand but not for long stay tuned as eternity is knocking at our door.

I hate to break it to you, but our country was NOT built upon the individual placing his own desires above the law. Roy Moore is a common criminal who willingly and with full knowledge of his actions, chose to break the law.

Yes, seldom is anything ever black or white.

First off, I agree, the whole thing about suing over a 10 commandment display of some kind is ridiculous.

On the other hand as BrainSmashr has pointed out, a ruling was handed down and a 'judge' of all people refused to follow the 'law'. That can't be a good thing

Welcome to the boards there BrainSmashr.

The laws of this predominantly Christian nation are indeed rooted in the Ten Commandments. It is no coincidence that many crimes are sins, and vice versa. People of non-Christian faiths are welcome here, just as non-english speaking people are welcome here...but the United States is above all else a Christian, english-speaking nation. Unfortunately, righteous folk must sometimes pay a heavy price for doing right. Judge Moore a criminal? Says who, the slack-jawed, whinyass, politically correct ACLU lawyers? Spare me! This man deserves better.

Christian nation are indeed rooted in the Ten Commandments.

Thank you Al for you thoughts. I agree and think that one day that the nation as a whole will have to come back to terms with our beginnings. It will take something larger than 9/11 so maybe 08 will wake up Christians in America of all Christian faiths.

Although I happen to agree with you Al, I wonder if Judge Moore should have obeyed the order from that other judge, removed the 10 commandments, then worked hard to change the law so he could put it back. It is only when there is no hope of changing the law that breaking the law is acceptable, like our forefathers did at the Boston Tea Party. So an important question for me is, did the good Judge Moore exhaust all hope in changing the law? I do not know the answer, but if anyone could change a law IMHO, it would be a judge! If he can't achieve results without breaking the law, then what chance do normal folk like you and I have?

The U.S. Constitution
U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson
and a 3 judge panel of the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals

The issue here isn't the man's religious beliefs, it's his willingness to openly disobey the law and direct court orders.

As this thread on this board displays, people are going to make of this what they will.

I for one, can agree with everything Al said earlier.

However, there is the 'thing' about him "openly disobeying the law and direct court orders".

In a perfect world, I would go back in time and would of had this whole thing thrown out of court (the initial ruling to have him remove it). Then he would have never 'disobeyed' the law.

The things people find to take to court in the first place just boggles my mind sometimes.

That is so wrong. This country is founded on Christian principals and the Ten Commandments are the base root of the entire legal system. The people that want to tear that down are the same people that would have socialism take the place of our Republic. It will never happen but it will get close before the correction comes and when it does there will be a major house cleaning.
