REPENT AMERICA REMEMBERS THE SHOWDOWN IN ALABAMA
AND HONOURS JUDGE ROY MOORE 1/28/04
PHILADELPHIA – REPENT AMERICA, an evangelistic ministry based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, remembers the showdown in Montgomery, Alabama over the Ten Commandments monument. “Judge Roy Moore has kept God first in his life, refuses to bow to government tyranny, and continues the fight to restore God as the moral foundation of law. Therefore, we honour him,” stated Michael Marcavage of REPENT AMERICA.
A few months ago on November 13, 2003, Alabama's nine-member Court of the Judiciary expelled Judge Roy Moore from his position as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. This ruling came after Judge Moore refused to move a Ten Commandments Monument from the rotunda of the Alabama Supreme Court building in Montgomery. Moore placed the 5,280 pound granite monument in the rotunda in August of 2001 to honour God and remind those entering that the foundation of America's law is derived from God's Holy Law.
In October of last year, two separate lawsuits were filed against Chief Justice Moore by plaintiffs represented by the ACLU, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and the Southern Poverty Law Center, demanding that the monument be removed. Moore refused to cave into their God-hating demands, gaining national attention and support for his actions. He was subsequently terminated as Chief Justice. "I have absolutely no regrets. I have done what I was sworn to do," Moore declared after the judicial panel's termination verdict, sparking applause from dozens of supporters at the courthouse. "It's about whether or not you can acknowledge God as a source of our law and our liberty. That's all I've done." As America plunges deeper into Godlessness and sin, praise be unto our King for raising up a God-fearing leader like Roy Moore.
As millions of people heard about Judge Moore's refusal to remove the Ten Commandment Monument, through national media, they also were confronted with God's Law. “We share wholeheartedly in Judge Moore's fight against government tyranny and against those who are waging war to remove the acknowledgement of God from public places.” stated Michael Marcavage, a field preacher with REPENT AMERICA. “Moore is a bold soldier of Christ who is being used mightily by God in our nation,” Marcavage continued. REPENT AMERICA honours him for his unwavering and unshakable stand.
REPENT AMERICA honours Judge Moore for honouring and keeping God first in his life and career; leading a Godly family in service to the LORD; keeping his promise to restore the moral foundation of law in America; keeping his oath to uphold the Alabama and United States Constitutions; not bowing to government tyranny; awakening the Church through his obedience to God; holding fast to biblical truth in the midst of his fellow Christian’s condemnation for refusing to move the monument; educating people about the foundation of American law; inspiring others to get involved in fighting against government tyranny and upholding God’s law in our nation; and continuing the fight for the states’ right to acknowledge God.
