"In houses and schools across the land, it's time for Christians to take a stand," said Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore August 13th, 2003

God Works Best after a Crucifixion

On Wednesday, November 12, I attended the trial/inquisition of Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore. I sat directly behind Attorney General William Pryor, whom the President has nominated to serve on the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. From the opening statements of the Prosecuting Attorney, it was clear that the Chief was not going to receive a fair trial and that the Attorney General of Alabama was determined to see the Chief removed.

The prosecution called no witnesses. Their case was based on the words of the Chief himself, as they played two video tapes of televised recordings of the Chief speaking. The Chief, when he took the stand, made no apologies for his remarks, and as the prosecution stressed, was not repentant. What the prosecution and the court refused to acknowledge, was the Chief had done nothing for which he should have repented. He broke no laws and he faithfully upheld his oath to the Constitutions of Alabama and the United States.

The Chief conducted himself with dignity and honor throughout the trial, which lasted a total of less than five hours before the nine appointed members of the Commission of Judicial Inquiry who served as Judges for the trial, recessed to consider their verdict. A remarkable moment came when one of the Chief's legal team quoted William Pryor defending the Chief for removing a plaque containing the Ten Commandments from his Alabama Circuit Courtroom during a rally for Chief in 1997. At 10 am on Thursday, November 13, 2003, a godly, competent and faithful man who chose to honor God rather than appease man, was removed from the highest judicial office in the State of Alabama by nine people elected by no one and accountable to no one.

I am 53 years old and I have seen a lot of things change in my lifetime, but I never thought I would see the day when a sitting President could break every commandment, including adultery and lying under oath, and remain in office, and a sitting State Supreme Court Justice would be removed for keeping and defending the Ten Commandments. Not only have the citizens of Alabama been deprived of the wisdom and integrity of this godly man on their highest court, their will as expressed by their vote has been denied.

But what Satan meant for evil, God meant for good…..and it will result in good, if the good people of this country will turn away from their selfish agendas long enough to stand with this modern day Daniel, and say, "Enough is Enough!" Vision America has been working for weeks to build a coalition of National leaders who would join us in promoting a petition which we have dubbed, "Save the Commandments…..God's Contract With America." 27 men and women, who represent millions of Americans through their respective ministries, have agreed to join us. Every ministry will promote the same petition for the next 10 months calling on Congress to restrict the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts in matters of religious expression. We hope to present millions of signatures to leaders of Congress and the President, demanding that they practice their Constitutional responsibility, according to Article III, Section 2, restricting the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts.

I believe Chief Justice Roy Moore will be used mightily over the next year, to educate and motivate millions of Americans as to the tyranny of these self appointed arbiters of all truth. Ambassador Alan Keyes is working directly with Vision America as we travel across the country holding rallies to address this issue. Beloved, remember this very important truth…..God always does His best work just after a Crucifixion.
