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.

Yeah, people have become so thin-skinned, nosey, and opinionated of late.

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.
