May you always be overwhelmed by the Grace of God.

Alabama Judge

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.

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.

IN GOD WE TRUST

Thanks ps.. Saint.. POD nominee sir..

We have a lot of newer' members.. Lot of old timers who are spending more time and putting up more posts.. Theirs no way i can single one or two people out, but i don't think life's ever been better on Gunslot.. i watched Reap guide HD thru gun issues yesterday.. enjoyed the read and info.. Sam (and all of you guys) humorous posts... ALL my senior bud's wisdom, and my younger bud's wise and funny thoughts.. Shit i even enjoy Pard.. But it's not just Daisy, or LLE, Lucky, Hamp, ISD, Clint, Sortatough, Lean'r, Saint, Ronin, Jay, TG, (lil)Jeff, or Nutless..

Guess what i'm trying to say (poorly) is the witt and wisdom category is maxed out. When life is NOT so grand i can come on here and be entertained by all of you.. and pretty amazing that i haven't read one post (with the possible exception of this one) that i don't enjoy, or of for some reason find entertaining..glad to know everyone of you..

No "you too" here (one or two of those o things..wheres Schuy when you need him) thats not the intent.. Pretty great to know that if i can't sleep i can come on here and have a good and thoughtful read.. pat yourself on the back my friends.. Don't know what happened on here, but its one fine place to be.. and you guys are the reason why.. Please no reference to this.. A) it's a little embarrassing B) it detracts from the sincerity.. C) im serious..you guys rock..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

haven't been keeping up on gunslot as much as id like to lately,so sorry i didn't get to this earlier.PSMALONE,good post man,good post.although I'm not a "christian"i think most of the ten commandments apply to us all,some may not fit our polytheistic and native/budist friends...our founders,although sometimes misguided in their religious zealotry meant well.it seems to me the founders recognized A god and reserved the right to say so when they seemingly (to some) paradoxically use the words god and creator in documents,while also adding the 1st amendment protecting peoples right to choose religion.I have copied here portions of our declaration of independence and the first amendment of the us constitution where GOD and or religion is relevant to the topic.i have CAPITALIZED and marked with double asterisks ** on either side of the word god religion or creator like so **GOD**
additionaly i have added a link to the website i copied from,and an excerpt from the site discussing the separation of church and state as well as a link to a treasury dept website and an excerpt discussing the phrase "in god we trust"

In Congress, July 4, 1776

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's **GOD** entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are **CREATED** equal, that they are endowed by their**CREATOR** with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Amendment 1 - Freedom of **RELIGION**, Press, Expression. Ratified 12/15/1791. Note

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of **RELIGION**, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

http://www.usconstitution.net/const.html#Preamble
The Separation Of Church and State

The phrase "separation of church and state" does not appear anywhere in the Constitution. Thomas Jefferson wrote that the 1st Amendment erected a "wall of separation" between the church and the state (James Madison said it "drew a line," but it is Jefferson's term that sticks with us today). The phrase is commonly thought to mean that the government should not establish, support, or otherwise involve itself in any religion. The Religion Topic Page addresses this issue in much greater detail.

http://www.treasury.gov/about/education/Pages/in-god-we-trust.aspxHistory of 'In God We Trust'

The motto IN GOD WE TRUST was placed on United States coins largely because of the increased religious sentiment existing during the Civil War. Secretary of the Treasury Salmon P. Chase received many appeals from devout persons throughout the country, urging that the United States recognize the Deity on United States coins. From Treasury Department records, it appears that the first such appeal came in a letter dated November 13, 1861. It was written to Secretary Chase by Rev. M. R. Watkinson, Minister of the Gospel from Ridleyville, Pennsylvania

to sum up,in my own opinion there is nothing i have found,in this search or any other to indicate to me that it is somehow illegal for a judge to hang the ten commandments in his courtroom,intact i would say his rights have been violated if anyones have in regard to this issue.do i WANT them there?no,but i don't mind either so long as HIS religion dosnt interfere with the interpretation of LAW.we must be careful however, when using his PERSONAL religious rights as a reason to have the commandments hang there,this leaves room for oh say a satanic anarchist to hang his documents as well.
well thats all folks,another looooong post from sedler.

CRY HAVOC and let slip the dogs of war!
