America You Used To Be…

How sad that: Judge Roy Moore of Alabama was removed from office on November 13, 2003 for refusing to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments from the justice building. How outrageous that: The ACLU is now trying to strip the judge of his right to practice law. Recently he put pen to paper to write the following:

America the Beautiful?

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

May Your Glass Always Be Half Full
