Former Alabama Justice Encourages Christians to Stand Up for God

Looking at what has been happening in the United States recently -- the issues relating to homosexual marriage and the Pledge of Allegiance case, Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, who was removed from his position after he refused a federal court order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the rotunda of Alabama’s Supreme Court, is calling the U.S. to return to the tradition of worshipping true God and acknowledge Him in the U.S. government.

As Moore is carrying on a new mission to educate Christians on the importance of keeping God in government, he asserted that when a country refuses to acknowledge God, loss of liberty and eventual anarchy would result. "If we don't stand up for the acknowledgment of God we will lose our rights," he said, "and we are losing our rights today. That's why marriage is being such an issue today -- it's because we are not recognizing the moral foundation of our law."

Currently, Moore is taking action in supportive of the Constitution Restoration Act, which would limit the jurisdiction of federal courts in certain cases and promote federalism, and is encouraging Christians to contact Congress to pass the bill.

As Moore believes God is the one who sets America’s moral foundation is God, not the activist judges, he is ensured that the bill is necessary in order to allow lawmakers to impeach Supreme Court justices who make faulty rulings, exceed their jurisdiction, or rely on anything other than the U.S. constitutional and English common law in their interpretation and application of the U.S. Constitution.

"It says the United States Supreme Court doesn't have jurisdiction to tell us we can't acknowledge God. And if we can acknowledge God, we've restored the moral foundation of our law," he said, "because we acknowledge a higher authority in government -- a higher standard of right and wrong than what men can dream up."

The bill is currently pending in Congress.
