my someday mother inlaw sent me this...very interesting. Dont think im trying to push my christian values off on you guys, the the last thing i would ever do.But its interesting and some of you might remember him and his story in the news.
Some of you may be wondering what Judge Roy Moore has been doing since he was removed from the bench for refusing to remove the 10 Commandments from his courtroom wall. Please read the poem he wrote below

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,
Appointing 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.

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

That is beautiful!
It is a shame they took a moral, God loving judge off his bench. We need that balance against judges that give community service to baby rapers!

you make me smile!
i think sometime morality and justice play one in the same and that can either make you or break you. and as a judge we often look to them as people who not only know the law but also uphold it as well as deeply rooted values/morals.

That reminds me, of something someone said.
I wish i could remember his name, because there is not alot that comes out of any leaders mouth these days that is worth the time it takes to hear it.

anyway, someone said, something like " the fonding father said freedom of religion not freedom from"

how i respect someone right not be the same as me, or the right not to beleave in anything at all. however it seems the respect does not go both ways most of the time.

Since my religious beliefs are similar, I wholeheartedly agree with his poems. It is a wake-up reminder that God will speak to the hearts of the closed, and by a miracle they will listen, and the world will be much better off. We will conserve, recycle and rethink the destruction of creation for a convenient, wasteful lifestyle.
