We Must Remember!

I have many thoughts of what is happening within our country and this world as we know it, particularly Israel. I would like to bring something to our attention, that is an example of how we are moving dangerously away from our founding principles of our country and the God of the bible, The Creator of all things.

In light of the coming of Shavuot, or the Feast of Weeks, at the end of this week, I thought it would be appropriate to relay a story that took place in November of 2003. Shavuot is the celebration or commemoration of the giving of the Ten Commandments at Mt. Sinai. What happened in November of 2003, was then Alabama Chief Justice Roy S. Moore being removed from his position of Chief Justice. He was removed because of his devotion to God and his desire to maintain the US Constitution and it's Godly foundation.

This is an excerpt of the trial, this is verbatim:

Pryor: Mr. Chief Justice? And your understanding is that the Federal court ordered that you could not acknowledge God; isn't that right?

Moore: Yes.

Pryor: And if you resume your duties as Chief Justice after this proceeding, you will continue to acknowledge God as you have testified that you would today ---

Moore: That's right.

Pryor: ---no matter what any other official says?

Moore: Absolutely. Without --- let me clarify that. Without an acknowledgment of God, I cannot do my duties. I must acknowledge God. It says so in the Constitution of Alabama. It says so in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. It says so in everything I have read. So ---

Pryor: The only point I am trying to clarify, Mr. Chief Justice, is not why, but only that, in fact, if you do resume your duties as Chief Justice, you will continue to do that without regard to what any other official says; isn't that right?

Moore: Well, I'll do the same thing this Court did with starting of prayer; that's an acknowledgement of God. Now, we did the same say thing that justices do when they place their hand on the Bible and say, "So help me God." It's an acknowledgement of God. The Alabama Supreme Court opens with, "God save the State and this Honorable Court." It's an acknowledgement of God. In my opinions, which I have written many opinions, acknowledging God is the source --- a moral source of our law. I think you must.

This is but a small part of the overall story. You must listen to this session on audio it will bring tears to the eyes of any God fearing man or woman.

Here is a link on Re-Taking America to much of what happened on that dark day of U.S. history. It covers a lot of info, but please take the time to look.

Here is an audio link to Tovia Singer on Arutz Sheva's Israel National Radio. He just interviewed the Honorable Roy S. Moore this past week. This is definitely worth a listen! The beginning of the audio track is chilling and saddening.

Please take the time...
