A Poetic Prayer - America the Beautiful

America the Beautiful

Judge Roy Moore is the President of the Foundation for Moral Law. The evil ACLU was instrumental in having Judge Moore removed from his judgeship in Alabama. The reason that got the ACLU all upset about is that Judge Moore refused to remove the 10 Commandments from a position of dignity at the Court House he presided.

Now that you have a little background on Judge Roy Moore, I received a chain email that is attributed to the Judge. The chain email is a poem about America’s moral decline. Usually chain email is at best a distortion of something that has started out as authentic and then warped by time or is a total scam with such notorious goals of collecting email addresses or worse infect our computers with some kind of virus or Trojan.

The chain email is a poem entitled, “America the Beautiful.” According to Urban Legends at the poem has circulated since 1997 before Judge Moore’s fame emerged over his 10 Commandments defense. Evidently the poem was accredited to “Anonymous” way back in 1997. Urban Legends does affirm the poem is by Judge Roy Moore; however as usual time may have enhanced the wording a bit.

Here is that chain email in the form that I received it.

I rarely forward anything like this, but I feel this judge's situation highlights the utter depravity and hypocrisy of our nation.  We need a dramatic turn around.  I'm willing to circulate this to my friends.....please take a minute to think about this one.

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.

Roy Moore (Judge) September 13, 2011

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.
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~~

This says it all. May we all forward this message and offer our prayers for Judge Moore to be blessed and for America to wake up and realize what we need to do to keep OUR - America the Beautiful.

Pass this on and let's lift Judge Moore up in Prayer. He has stood firm and needs our support.
