Alabama Supreme Court Judge
January, 2001 - November, 2003
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 Ten Commandments from his courtroom wall.
Please read the poem he wrote. It's below his picture.
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
Judge Roy Moore
Alabama - May 2000
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.

author of "So Help Me God":
Archives, World News Daily, Judge Roy Moore:
The American Union will last as long as God pleases.
It is the duty of every American Citizen
to exert his utmost abilities and endeavors
to preserve it as long as possible
and to pray with submission to Providence
"esto perpetua" [may it last forever].
