Image via WikipediaJudge Roy Moore, from the great state of Alabama, has announced that he is running for governor of Alabama in 2010. This man needs to be there.
Judge Moore was at the center of controversy in 2002-2003 when, as the elected Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, he refused to remove a granite monument in the state judicial building that was engraved with the Ten Commandments. On November 13, 2003, Alabama's Court of the Judiciary unanimously removed Judge Moore from his post as Chief Justice.
Moore's likely opponent will be Democratic Rep. Artur Davis, a longtime friend of Barry's going back to their days at Harvard Law School. But Davis wouldn't get any preferential treatment from Washington, right? That makes it even more imperative the the wonderful state of Alabama elect Judge Moore.
The ACLU is forever citing "separation of church and state" in their efforts to establish atheism as the one true government religion. THERE IS NONE!!! Let me whip out my pocket Constitution and tell you what the First Amendment says about religion.
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;..."
In other words, we are not to have one official religion in this country, much as many nations do. Again, I believe that the left has set out to establish atheism and moral relativism as this nation's official religions.
I posted a few days ago about a lawsuit, again brought by the ACLU, that seeks to have a cross to honor our country's brave war dead removed from Sunrise Rock in the Mojave Desert. This group must have a hard time understanding the First Amendment.
Let's be clear: religious freedoms in this country are being targeted just as heavily as all of our other rights. When we believe that our rights descend from God, it makes government very uncomfortable. They know that if that is our true belief system, we will only answer to God himself. The folks at Government House don't like that; it makes them less important.
Let's pray that the good people of Alabama send a message that this is truly what America needs and wants.
