I have worked with a grassroots group during the turmoil of same-sex “marriage” being pushed upon our state. Many of you may remember this post from June of last year, as Sanctity of Marriage Alabama was organizing several rallies in support of Judge Moore’s stand against the federal court system, to protect Alabama’s marriage laws. He has been a man who has stood up more than once for the freedom of Alabama, and the truth of God’s Word. We in Alabama are truly blessed to have such a godly man who seeks to please the Lord in office.
About three weeks ago, Judge Moore was suspended from his duties because of complaints filed against him from LGBT groups. Sanctity of Marriage Alabama is working on organizing a rally in support of Judge Moore and his stand against the unconstitutional and unbiblical court ruling that has sparked this turmoil.
Many of you may not live in Alabama, and may not realize what has been going on in the back-country southern state dubbed “The Heart of Dixie.”
In 2006 Justice Judge Moore was suspended from his duties for standing up for the ten commandments. He believed it went against what this country was founded upon to have them removed from his office.
In 2013, Alabamians elected him back to the position of Chief Justice of Alabama — clearly showing everyone what the majority of Alabama wants. A person in office who will uphold the teachings of Christ.
In 2014 the United States Supreme Court issued a controversial ruling in Obergefell, in a 5-4 decision, calling same-sex “marriage” a constitutional right. Our Chief Justice fought back, issuing a statement to all probate judges that until the Alabama Supreme Court decided otherwise, Alabama would not be issuing marriage licenses for same-sex couples. It went against our state constitution. It went against God’s Word. Several of the probate judges did not obey Judge Moore’s statement, and he reissued it again in December.
In early 2016, LGBT activist groups filed several complaints against Judge Moore, causing him to be temporarily suspended from office three weeks ago. This fight is not strange for Judge Moore — he has fought it before, fought to uphold the values entrusted to him by Alabamians. The values of right, truth, and freedom for all citizens.
If not in Alabama, or if you are not able to attend the rally, please join us in praying for our nation. For strong, godly leaders who aren’t afraid to stand up for the truth of God’s word, for the constitution of the United States, for the values that our country was founded upon. For ordinary, everyday citizens to join in the fight, and let their voices be heard. For our nation to repent of the sin and godlessness that we have allowed and even condoned. For that repentance to begin with us — the believers — His church.
For those of you in Alabama, who desire freedom, who know the value of having godly leadership of our state, will you join us?
From Sanctity of Marriage Alabama:
Will you join us and help spread the word? If you don’t have a plan for this Saturday, here’s a good one: come to the Heflin-Torbert Judicial Building in Montgomery at 11:00 am on Saturday, May 21st.Join friends of the Chief Justice, elected officials, churches, and activists from all over Alabama (and a few from out of state). Stand with Chief Justice Moore for God, for morality, and for the Constitution. He’s been suspended from his position and faces unjust removal from office; we intend to be a united voice and put a halt to this politically-motivated effort.Watch this 60-second backstory and promo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1LpznJwj3Q (Then share it on Facebook, with your church, and in emails to your contacts.)There’s a lot on the line. With the recent suspension of Chief Justice Roy Moore and the late transgender bathroom decree from President Obama, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the advance of an evil agenda in this country. But, take heart — the victory is ours in Christ and God is on His throne. But, with that said, it is no time to be silent, complain in our corners, or keep our voice confined to social media. Let’s show up. And, yes, it will require effort and sacrifice from each and every one of us. We need God’s mercy, we need to speak up, and we need to stand by one of this nation’s greatest champions of morality and the law — Chief Justice Roy Moore.Want the quick version of what’s going on with Chief Justice Moore?
