“You Must Read this Book”

As you know I have utmost respect for Dr. D. James Kennedy. I listen to what he says. His voice helps direct America back to her founding heritage—Jesus Christ. I like that.
The other day I sent $30 to help support his radio and TV ministry. What I received in return is beyond good. It is really good. In response to small gift I gave, I was sent former Chief Justice of Supreme Court of Alabama Judge Roy Moore’s new book entitled, So Help Me God.
Wow! At a time in my life when I thought that all good books had already been written and read by me, a book like this falls into my hands. Talk about inspiring, this read is a must read for anyone who stands on principle. Whether or not one agrees with Moore’s politics, this man is a man of principle, and that is inspiring. I’d like to highlight some of his thoughts made public in this wonderful book.
The book is published by Broadman & Holman Publishers in Nashville, TN and it carries subtitle, The Ten Commandments, Judicial Tyranny, and The Battle For Religious Freedom.
Listen to this: “The same year I was busy creating carved plaque of Ten Commandments, United States Supreme Court was busy taking them of wall of a Kentucky schoolhouse. The court in Stone v. Graham stated:
“‘The Ten Commandments are undeniably a sacred text in Jewish and Christian faith, and no legislative recitation of a supposed secular purpose can blind us to that fact…If posted copies of Ten Commandments are to have any effect at all, it will be to induce school children to read, meditate upon, perhaps to venerate and obey, Commandments. However desirable this might be as a matter of private devotion, it is not a permissible state objective under Establishment Clause.’
“How could Supreme Court of United States draw such a ridiculous conclusion? Surely judges and justices should regard laws against killing, adultery, stealing, lying, and disregard of parental authority as desirable rules. And certainly a callous disregard of God’s law today has fostered an atmosphere in which murder, rape, robbery, and all forms of disobedience of authority are more commonplace in public schools than they were in 1980.
“The Ten Commandments are not only a sacred text in Jewish and Christian faiths, as Supreme Court stated in Stone v. Graham. They are God’s revealed, divine law and basis on which our morality depends…In Farewell Address, George Washington, at conclusion of his second tern as our nation’s first president, reminded people that virtue or morality is important to welfare of our nation, and that attempts to destroy or take lightly this foundation of popular government would be detrimental to country. He stated, ‘Tis substantially true that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government…Who that is a sincere friend to it can look with indifference upon attempts to shake foundation of fabric? Promote, then, as an object of primary importance, institutions for general diffusion of knowledge.’
